The check-in woman in Dover was curt and unfriendly, but the actual crossing was indeed lovely, and the ferry was comfortable except for a number of toilets being out of order. But when we got to Calais, there was no reasonable way for foot passengers to get off the boat! We were all assembled, after vague and conflicting instructions, on the lower deck, amidst the fumes and deafening noise of dozens upon dozens of trucks and buses, not allowed to disembark until all vehicles had done so. This took over an hour! A dreadful, disgraceful way to end an otherwise nice trip. Shame on P&O for allowing this.
