    Very comfortable trip
    • Comfortable cabin. Nice hot shower. Gave staff 3 out of 5 as couldn't get the free wifi. Asked a staff member and he vaguely tried, said everyone else could get wifi, shrugged and went away.

    Check sailing times
    • Booked for July crossing last Nov. Printed off times etc. Return crossing would be leaving Cherbourg 18.30 (local time) and arrive Poole 21.45. We decided to set off from Dinan early and arrived in Cherbourg 14.30 OMG, they were loading vehicles and sailed 15.00. Nobody told us that sailing time had changed. We were very lucky not to have missed the ferry.

    • Don't cater for single poeple on board cabins charging single poeple twin or four poeple cabins when they are never full

    One grouchy employee
    • A grudging agreement to accompany me to get extra clothing from my car spoilt an excellent crossing. The airconditioning seemed too cold in the bar area - my partner and I realised too late we needed more layers.
