All very good only problem was when people were told to go to their vehicles it got very congested on stairways as lower doors were opened before deck 6 door.

Dog area spread over into other areas. Smell overpowering. Lack of outdoor sitting areas. I would seek to travel on a no dog ship.

Spent a day and a night on the ferry, the staff were all very helpful and polite. The cabin was clean and comfortable, a little confusing to find but eventually managed to remember the way. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal in the restaurant, the food was excellent, staff attentive, could not have asked for better. Would certainly recommend to friends and travel again. Thank you.

The Spanish city of Bilbao, located in the autonomous region of the Basque Country, lies in the north central part of Spain and is around 14km to the south of the Bay of Biscay, where the estuary of Bilbao is formed. The city is the capital of the province of Biscay and is the main commercial and cultural hub of northern Spain. One of the main drivers behind the city's reputation is the Guggenheim Museum which draws visitors in to the city who then find out for themselves the other interesting attractions the city has on offer. The city's location makes it the perfect port of entry to the northern Iberian Peninsular and to south west France.
The city's port lies on the Bilbao Abra Bay, and along the Estuary of Bilbao in Biscay (the Basque Country). The port's main facilities can be found in the Santurtzi and Zierbena municipalities, approximately 15 km west of Bilbao. Brittany Ferries operate the Portsmouth to Bilbao route, with their boat, the MV Cap Finistère.
The city of Portsmouth is located on the couth coast of England in the county of Hampshire. The city has a long and strong connection to the Royal Navy spanning centuries and was once an integral part of the world's shipbuilding industry, building the first ever dry dock in the late 15th century, which is still used today. Portsmouth remains a significant base for the Royal Navy and is home to many distinguished ships, with its crowning glory being the flagship of Lord Nelson, the HMS Victory. Due to its strategic prominence, Portsmouth was bombed quite extensively during WWII and so is now very much a mixture of new and old, with some of the most historic areas including the Hard and the Point. The suburb of Southsea is a firm favourite of families holidaying in Portsmouth and features a lengthy stretch of beach, two piers and a good tourist information centre. Southsea is a particularly lively part of Portsmouth and has many bars, cafes and a fun theme park at the Clarence Pier.
Ferry services from the city's port depart to Le Havre, Bilbao, Cherbourg, Caen, St Malo, St Helier, St Peter Port and Ryde.
