The docklands area of Portsmouth have long been important for the Royal Navy (and, incidentally, home to the world's oldest dry dock) and there are a variety our walking and boat tours which will give you an insight into the city's past. The waterfront has recieved much needed renovation in the last decade. One result is the Spinnaker Tower which can be clearly viewed as you enter the port.

    • From the time the boat finally docked at the port of Santander it took one and threequater hours for all the vehicles to be unloaded, cleared passport control before we could move forward to start loading. In total it was four and a quarter hours turn round from docking to sailing - just imagine this on the Dover - Calais route! I don't think I'll be using this route again for this very reason.

    • I would highly recommend Brittany Ferries. Although we paid extra for av4 berth cabin. It was lovely and clean as was the bathroom. The facilities on board were good. The food was delicious and staff very friendly.

    • We had a very positive experience. On board catering was reasonably priced. Shared areas were clean and comfortable. Our only criticism is that we couldn't understand any of the captain's announcements in English.

    Good service but expensive
    • Nice cabin, adequate facilities, nice, helpful staff. Despite the economy label I think an average price of around £450 one way is quite expensive.
