P&O Ferries’ superferry twins, European Highlander and European Causeway which operate between Cairnryan and Larne, have returned to service following a £100,000 refit on each ship.
The work, carried out by local ship outfitters Blu Marine, is part of P&O Ferries ongoing £20m investment program across its Irish Sea ships’ and ports. Earlier this year the company relaunched the P&O Express, on its fast ferry service between Troon and Larne, following a £500,000 investment to redesign and refit the ship throughout.
For the first time, the all new modern Club Lounge is available on all three P&O Ferries ships operating between Scotland and Northern Ireland. With a capacity for up to 40 passengers on each of the twin ferries, customers can upgrade to enjoy complimentary daily newspapers and magazines, complimentary refreshments including soft drinks, teas, coffees, wine and snacks. Power sockets enable passengers to use their laptops, tablets and mobile phones and the upgrade also includes priority boarding.
The Routemaster Lounge for commercial drivers has also been given a complete makeover and features custom sleeper chairs for added comfort.
Club Lounge tickets booked in advance cost £12 per person while tickets purchased on board cost £14 per person. All passengers when booking can now purchase the Priority loading and disembarkation service.
