30 Nov 2019Good ferry
Great staff and restaurant. Generally really good. Minor quibbles... All curtains closed during a night crossing, which with rough seas can make you a bit queasy. Went outside for some fresh air and both times confronted by smokers on both sides of the ship. It would be better to have a smoking and non-smoking side. Also ferry was half empty. This is one of the more expensive crossings so I usually find an alternative. If it was slightly cheaper I would probably use it more.

28 Sep 2019Cheap and cheerful
The boat was fine, lacking the comfort and amenities of the larger boats, but for a shorter journey and lower price it is acceptable. I did feel that the day cabins were very over priced, the same price as for the longer crossings.

26 Sep 2019Very comfortable.
Perfect for long journey, we had a 5 hours journey, we took a cabin since we were very tired and we slept very good and comfortable.

19 Aug 2019Very rough seas but very enjoyable crossing.
We booked a more expensive cabin and it was worth it. The seas were very rough but it did not impact our crossing too much. Bars and restaurants are pleasant. Yes, the crossing is more expensive that other ferries or trains, but it saved us a 6 hour drive (550kms). A nine hour crossing also provides for a good night's sleep!

14 Aug 2019Boring journey!
Let's face it, it is a long journey to Portsmouth with little to do, therefore one should be prepared beforehand and take with you whatever entertains because you can't access your vehicle once underway. The shop (once duty free) is small with limited goods. Price of drinks and snacks onboard are expensive if you are used to the low prices in France and Germany but probably normal for the UK! Rubbish coffee from a machine but acceptable in the restaurant when it was open. The restaurant could have longer hours, at least the snacks and coffee section. Next time will take a Scrabble set with us!
