    • Cheap ferry booking on the Brittany ferry economie fleet. The crossing took longer than the normal ferries. The ship was very clean, staff helpful, but only one lift for passengers which made it difficult for those with walking difficulties.

    • We normally do the Dover Calais route and overnight a couple of times on the way to the costa calida My son told my wife on this route you share bedrooms with the Spanish wagon drivers and you sleep in bunk bed rooms So it was a pleasant supplies to her ( I think ) that we had a comfortable clean and private berth so happy days We will do it again
