    This was my 1st sailing from Poole to Cherbourg and return.
    • Driving through Poole town to the car Ferry terminal... it was well signposted and despite there being a rumour of a delayed sailing we left on time. The English Channel was very choppy at times and I was sea sick... but that could have been averted by having decent stabilizers built into the fabric of the ferry. On leaving Poole on my return journey north... nothing to do with the ferry company... the road signs for out-of-town roads were poorly placed and driving in the rain and dark took me ages to eventually find the correct road. Even with my GPS it was not easy until a local person helped my out with good directions. Colin Stephen Story

    Generally good
    • The ferry boarding was all fine, crossing quick but weather was bad on way back. Quiet crossing as out of season.

    Hassle Free Journey
    • I am a frequent traveller to France and have used Brittany Ferries for many years. However this was the first time I used the Ports of Poole and Cherbourg but as usual a very smooth and professional service here as well. From the initial check in staff, people directing cars, to the staff onboard, I have always found it faultless. Thank you Brittany Ferries!
