Travelling with your baby on P&O Ferries

We understand that travelling with your toddler or child means that you need all the information possible prior to travel to make your journey as stress free as possible, so we've compiled as much information as we can to help you before you travel!

A passport is required for your child when travelling except on the Irish Sea where a Photo ID is required for all adults (18+) on the Dublin/Liverpool route (Photo ID can be any card with name & photo e.g. club card, library card, gym cards - including recently expired).

Meals on board for your baby

We offer free Heinz baby food to any child between 0-18 months. Our kid’s menu options are also adjusted in price accordingly.
