P&O will celebrate at King George Dock in Hull for the relaunch on Wednesday where some business clients are to be treated to lunch, wine and also given a tour of the ship.

The Pride of York which weighs 32000 tons and can carry just under 900 passengers on its route between Hull and Belgium, has had its catering experience and cabins completely overhauled, also its freight facilities, shops and bars which now have hotspot wi-fi.

The following week, its sister vessel, The Pride of Bruges will also be relaunched from Zeebrugge after having a similar refit.

Managing director of P&O Ferries Janette Bell, said "We are delighted that this £8.5m relaunch has transformed freight driver facilities, on-board shops, Brasserie and improved the cabins for everyone who sails with us."

"Imagine stepping on board a ship which takes you to the continent in comfort and importantly provides you with a good night's sleep, whilst giving you time to relax over a meal and take advantage of some great shopping deals. It is the ideal package for tourists who don't want to endure a budget airline and for freight drivers who want to relax overnight and reach their destination on time in the morning.

"On board our upgraded Brasserie offers new menus offering value for money British and continental dishes. The bars have been given a sleek. modern feel offering hot food to order and hotspot wi-fi."

"We are proud that whether you are a tourist passenger or a freight driver you will be able to sleep soundly in your cabin and arrive refreshed the next day."

The companys new investment is an indication to its commitment of its Hull routes to Europe with fares starting from £40 each way and 2 for 1 offers.

The Pride of York was originally build in Glasgow in 1986 and named the MS Norsea, it was then refurbished in 2001 before being part of the service from Hull to Zeebrugge in 2003.
