Pan-European ferry operator P&O Ferries said that it plans to spend GBP 8.5 million (USD 10.6 million) on upgrading its two ships on the North Sea’s Hull-Zeebrugge route.

Two 32,000 ton sister vessels the Pride of York and the Pride of Bruges, which can carry up to 880 passengers on their overnight sailings to and from the continent, will benefit from the major investment in their infrastructure and passenger areas.

The upgrades will be conducted at the Remontowa shipyard in Poland and, according to Janette Bell, Chief Commercial Officer at P&O Ferries, “will take both vessels up to the next level.”

“This year we have introduced weekend mini-cruises to the historic Belgian city of Bruges for customers on our Hull-Zeebrugge route,” 

Among the upgrades planned under the investment, the ferries’ cabins will be upgraded, as well as the vessels’ kitchen dining area.

P&O Ferries deploys vessels on eight major routes between Britain, France, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Holland and Belgium.

The company operates 20 vessels which carry more than 10 million passengers, 1.6 million cars and 2.2 million freight units every year.
