    Nice trip
    • You should provide with a decent free WiFi. You WiFi is the worst I have ever used in my life. It was almost impossible to get connected. So many people were upset. The staff knew the thruth nevertheless they always said, we are trying to improve the signal.

    Brittany ferries
    • The ferry seems to have been designed as ferry for commercial vehicles. The food left a lot to be desired. The staff in the restaurant were very helpful, the rest of the staff seemed to be just doing a job. our outward ferry was cancelled because of the bay of Biscay and we were told that we could not get a ferry in 2 weeks which seemed very unfairbut thanks to the efficiency of aferry we were offered a ferry to caen, the ferry was much better than the one to Santander. Because of the bad weather in France it became a very expensive trip down having to stay at hotels on the way down to spain adding 2 extra days to the journey. although we had a refund for part of the journey it no way compensated for the extra cost.

    Expensive but really comfortable and the staff are amazing
    • Taking dogs abroad is so important for us. The kennels provided are COLD and impersonal. But the staff are wonderful so all in all I truly enjoyed the trip. (My dogs HATED every minute) The walking area for pets has wide bars that my dogs strolled through so they couldn't use it. The kennels are COLD metal boxes and totally pet unfriendly
