    very pleasantly surprised
    • we had visions of this being quite dire. the Economie was much cheaper than the other ferries but as it was the first time we had done this crossing we thought we'd stay with the worst way! or fears were totally unfounded. clean and comfortable. good cabins. we were right by the information desk but it wasn't noisy the today beef in the restaurant was to die for! we had it two days running... only downside was or car being outside on deck for the crossing. they hose them down but you still need to give it a proper wash asap. on our way back we are on the regular ferry. comparisons will be interesting!

    AFerry Android application works well
    • Application works very well for purchase and check in. Surprise that Brittany ferries does not have one. Good trip, and little slow for boarding, due to large school groups that were noisy on board ship. Matter addressed over PA.

    Veteran comparison
    • Information about embarkation would have been appreciated, all else was fine. Talking with one of the D-Day veterans who was returning from the commemoration events makes one appreciate how straightforward and lucky one is. Their journey to the Cherbourg and the Cotentin Peninsula in 1944 was undoubtedly rather more hazardous than the one on the 7th June this year.
