    The Entertainment on this ferry is way better than a standard (large) Hotel. I booked and went on this trip at the end of July. Meals were ok, but they could be better. What I like the most about this ferry is that you can sleep on the ferry when traveling from Hull to (in my case: Amsterdam instead of) Rotterdam.

    + PROS: Entertainment is awesome Staff is nice Live
    - CONS: Dining could be better If you are tall beware of the huts
