    Great journey
    • Portsmouth to Santander with Brittany Ferries

      The check in was very smooth and easy, very efficient boarding process. The on board facilities were excellent. I booked a 4 berth outside club class cabin which was very nice and well appointed, however I did get a chance to see the 2 berth cabins and they were very claustrophobic, I would not book a 2 berth cabin even for 1 person. Overall the experience was very pleasant and I recommend this route and A Ferry. Thank you

    Mont St Michel not as good as the Normandie
    • Portsmouth to Caen with Brittany Ferries

      Second trip on the Pompey-Caen route and on both occasions took the overnight ferry out, without a cabin. The recling seats on the Normandie are very good but the ones on the Mont St michel are awful. If you want a semi-decent one you have to pay extra. Other than that, for me it's a great crossing but normally too expensive through the high season. But at £109 return I couldn't complain - 45 minute drive in the UK and 1.25 hours in France. Ideal.

    Isle of Wight ferry
    • Portsmouth to Fishbourne with Wightlink

      Nothing bad to say about this crossing except it costs quite a lot - we live in France and thus take the cross-channel ferries on a regular basis and in comparison this short crossing is expensive
