P&O Ferries: Pride of Bilbao 'mini cruise'

ShipsInBergen

By ShipsInBergen , June 2, 2010 in P&O Cruises ( UK )

Recommended Posts

ShipsInBergen

I've just booked onto a 3 night return trip from Portsmouth to Bilbao and have a couple of questions. Before I start, I know this isn't a cruise. I know the Pride of Bilbao is a grotty old ferry and that she will be cramped and full of 'booze-cruisers', etc. I am sufficiently interested in ships to want to go anyway before P&O retire her at the end of the year.

So, to anyone who has taken this trip before, is it possible to take your own food and drink onboard with you? I'm guessing this is ok since it's just a ferry and therefore as foot passengers there are few baggage restrictions, but I don't want to have any hassle at check-in. I know the food onboard will be pricey and I'm keen for this not to turn into an expensive trip (as I may as well just have booked one of the 2/3 night ones with P&O cruises!).

Also, does anyone have info about the type of plug sockets in the room or any other general tips on surviving the crossing!?

I've searched online and the only forums I can find on the subject dried up years ago, so I thought I'd turn to cruise critic on the off chance that someone here had the answers! Thanks in advance to anyone wo can help.

You may get a better answer if you head over to the www.bfenthusiasts.com forum.
Thanks. I've had a look and this is almost exclusively Brittany Ferries. The equivalent 'enthusiast' website for P&O ferries doesn't have a forum. I'll sign up and post over there anyway, but I'll keep checking back incase someone on these boards knows!

Yes but many of the members have travelled on the POB and have a lot of knowledge.

2 for 1 Mini Cruises

Ferries and cruises from Portsmouth

Portsmouth is Hampshire’s second largest city, and the UK’s only island city, so as you might expect it is big and bold and vibrant and full of life.

This is not a place to visit if you are looking for a peaceful countryside retreat, but if you want somewhere with a bit of life and soul (a lot of life and soul!) then Portsmouth is where you should go.

👍 Hear about the deals first - click here and follow my Mini Cruise Addict page on Facebook (opens in new window).

Located on England’s south coast, Portsmouth boasts theatres, live music venues, art galleries, museums, two cathedrals, nightclubs, restaurants, and even a number of different festivals, depending on what time of the year you decide to visit.

Portsmouth itself was founded in 1180 by merchant Jean De Gisors. He could see the importance of the location regarding a port there, so he built a town around it for his workers to make it easier for them to work the long, hard days he wanted them to. A market soon sprang up and eventually other merchants moved in and the town expanded.

Portsmouth Historical Dockyard, the Portsmouth Museum, the D-Day Museum, Spitbank Fort, Gunwharf Quay (for shopping), and Cumberland House Natural History Museum are just a few of the many and varied activities to experience and places to visit in this most astonishing of cities.

Portsmouth Port sits at the end of the M275 which links to the M27 and A27 making it easily accessible from all directions.

Car Parking

Short term parking bays at the cruise and ferry terminals are available for picking up or dropping off passengers and their luggage.

A four-storey long stay car park is a short walk from the main ferry terminal. When I last checked in May 2016 the price was £13 per 24 hours.

Getting there by coach

National Express have a stop located at the Cruise & Ferry Terminal at Portsmouth International Port, a few steps away from the terminal.

Route 203 connects Portsmouth International Port to Heathrow Airport. This stops at Fareham, Southampton, Winchester and Basingstoke.

Route 303 connects Blackpool with Weymouth via Bolton, Liverpool, Chester, Manchester, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham, Oxford, Southampton, Portsmouth International Port, and Bournemouth amongst others.

Book your tickets here .

Getting there by train

Portsmouth & Southsea Rail Station is a short distance away from the port. You will most likely need to catch a local bus or a taxi to the port unless you are travelling really light and fancy a lengthy walk.

Services typically run to Littlehampton, Portsmouth Harbour, London, Brighton (East Sussex), Southampton, and Cardiff. Journey times to Cardiff average 3¼ hours, Birmingham average 3½ hours, while London typically takes less than a couple of hours. Journeys from Edinburgh typically average seven hours with a couple of train changes. Plan your journey here .

Hi, I'm David and I'm a mini cruise addict. I love the ease and simplicity of exploring Europe from the comfort of a cruise ferry or cruise ship almost as much as I love finding great value deals, including the mother of all deals, the famous '2 for 1' deals.
