The renowned value of a P&O Ferries 2 for 1 Hull to Ostend mini cruise has returned, but with a twist.
Last year the 2 for 1 deal started from £79 for two people. This year, under the banner 'Mini Cruises Mini Prices', P&O Ferries has reduced the starting rate to from £40 per person.
While the offer is not called a two for one deal, you don't need to be a mathematician to see that this is effectively an identical offer. However, this year groups of three and five can take advantage of the same value that those travelling as a couple or a group of four used to enjoy.

The sailing itself is the same. You'll set sail from Hull in the evening bound for Zeebrugge. Enjoy the great entertainment on-board your crossing and enjoy a comfortable night's sleep in an en-suite inside cabin.
The following morning you'll dock in Zeebrugge and board a coach for a transfer into Oostende. You'll have around 7 hours of free time in Ostend (depending on when you dock, and when you choose to catch the return coach back to the port).
Oostende is known as the "city by the sea". It offers over five and a half miles of sandy beaches facing the North Sea. It boasts an extensive promenade along with a harbour and yacht basin. The city is also a great choice for fine gastronomy with options to suit all tastes.
Your return sailing departs in the early evening and sails overnight back to Hull, giving you another chance to enjoy yourself on-board.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
Tip: Book online to avoid a surcharge that is applied to telephone bookings.
The dull-but-necessary small print
All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice. The lead-in prices (otherwise known as the 'from' prices) are, unless otherwise stated above, based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin on the cheapest available date. Typically the best prices are available at the start of any promotion period so the earlier you book the better choice of sailing dates and cabin availability you should have. Mid-week sail dates are likely to be cheaper than weekend sail dates.
