    • Good ship, good facilities let down by the twin inside cabin. Gap at either end of the mattress, tiny pillow. Make sure you take your favourite pillow with you to 5he cabin . Atrocious nights sleep due to the pillow.

    • The crossing was well managed although it is difficult to get in and out of the car because there is so little space on the car decks. The cabins and bathroom were surprisingly spacious. The cinema provided some welcome distraction. The good was reasonable.

    Portsmouth - St Malo
    • We had a very good journey with Brittany Ferries. Two adults, and four children, across two cabins. Food choice is very good, prices are reasonable, and there is plenty of seating available. We dosed the children with travel sickness tablets, and they were fine. And they really enjoyed the cinema on the way home!

    Great Crossing
    • The journeys were both fine, the only little snag was that our cabin wasn't ready at the time of boarding, apart from this all good. Will use again.
