    Ferry crossing
    • 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.

    Santander to Portsmouth.
    • Good value for money when compared to the standard crossing. Wifi very slow and patchy. Cabin ok. Selection of food restricted as you would expect but good quality generally.

    More to do on board
    • The journey was very comfortable and relaxing and staff were very good. We didn't really eat much food as we brought some with us as it was a bit expensive but it would have been useful to have a few things like fruit and bread to buy on board if possible. I know it was the economy ferry but it would have been nice to have some films or at least more interesting TV to watch to pass some of the time. Also if there were something like a table football table or a table tennis table (for calm crossings)it would have made the time go quicker. Some gym equipment like an exercise bike and treadmill would be even better. Overall it was a good experience though and good value for money.
