"Portsmouth-caen crossing"

Reviewed 18 August 2014 by Andrea

I have not travelled with Brittany ferries for some years as I am not a good sailor. I was incredibly impressed with the level of service on this crossing. The staff were friendly and helpful, the entertainment fo rthe children was a blessing, allowing parents to have a bit of a break while their kids were being entertained (the panto was a great experience for my 5 year old). The best thing however was the food in the restaurante which can only be decsibed as outstanding. The buffet table of starters was a gastronomic delight. The only problem was leaving enough room for the outstanding main course. Beautiful food cooked with great skill. I was not particularly looking forward to the ferry crossing, especially with 2 young children but I have to say I really enjoyed it. Far less stressful than air travel.

"French ferry"

Reviewed 18 August 2014 by Peter

I booked the trip Portsmouth to Cherbourg for 3 people through Directferries at about half the cost of going direct. FANTASTIC. I wanted to change the destination to Caen. I rang Directferries, got through within about a minute, spoke to a VERY helpful lady & within 3 minutes had changed the destination & paid the extra £15. Incredibly good service. Thank you very much. I will always use Directferries. This looks like an advert but its true!! The ferry was clean, comfortable & on time. Thanks Peter

"Excellent Staff"

Reviewed 14 August 2014 by Rhian

A very enjoyable crossing - the staff on the ship were extremely helpful and friendly. There was plenty to do and the 8+ hours flew by. The food in the restaurant was good quality and good value for money.

"Wonderful Experience"

Reviewed 14 August 2014 by Barry

We sailed from Portsmouth to Caen on July 14th, the ship was excellent, food really good and value for money. We sailed on time on the outward and return journey. We had reserved recliner seats in a quiet lounge which we would do again. Really happy with the experience.

When you sail with Brittany Ferries your destination port is more than just a port. Each of their destinations possesses its own character and is normally full of life with great places to shop, drink and eat.

Brittany Ferries offer a service which is centred on their luxury cruise ferries, which means your holiday starts the minute you step on board the ship.

The entertainment is varied and the food is French cuisine which of course has a great reputation. You can also shop in the many boutiques, or relax in your accommodation, which they have tried to make as comfortable and luxurious as they can.

On longer trips such as between England and Spain the cabin that you get can make a massive difference. Getting a cabin allows you privacy during the day along with a place to keep your belongings safe and by night provides you with a comfortable place to sleep.

Brittany Ferries also operate a no-frills service called Brittany Ferries économie on the Portsmouth Le Havre and Santander routes. The économie service is ideal for those who wish to travel to France or Spain at a very reasonable fare without either the cruise-style experience provided on other ships or the speed afforded by Normandie Express. Brittany Ferries économie uses the Etretat ferry.
