Reviewed 09 January 2015 by Antony R. O'Hagan

My wife and I chose to travel from Portsmouth to Bilbao on the Cap Finistere from 21st to 23rd December because we wanted to enjoy the two night voyage and the comfort of a Club Class cabin. We were not disappointed. The ship was well appointed, the crew were most welcoming and the restaurants provided excellent meals. In all, we very much enjoyed our voyage on the Cap Finistere and would certainly wish to repeat the experience sometime in the future.

"Pet alert"

Reviewed 09 January 2015 by Ian

We were due to sail on the Le Havre Portsmouth crossing leaving at 22:00 on January 2nd. We had taken our dog to the vet that morning as no vets were open the day before being a public holiday. To our surprise and dismay we were not allowed to board the ferry despite having a 4 year old with us as we were told that 24 hours would not have elapsed after seeing the vet and before we landed in the UK. I offered to take the risk that the dog would be quaranteened at my expense, or would stay on the dock in the UK for the 90 minutes that would make the 24 hours and was refused. We had to return to the office where after some time and £50 cost we were sent to catch the 08:00 crossing from Caen, an hours drive away and no where to sleep. We were fortunate to find a Best Western hotel by the port - another £85 for one room with three in a bed!

"Economy but good"

Reviewed 06 January 2015 by Malcolm

This was our first trip on the Britany Ferry "Economie" service to La Havre. The ship was very clean and standard excellent. Although only one resturant, the food was very good and offering a wide choice and good value. I can recomend this service. Not really Econonomy but good value.

"Our favourite crossing"

Reviewed 05 January 2015 by Paul

We use the Caen Portsmouth crossing two or three times a year and always appreciate it. Lounges are clean, quiet, comfortable and usually unpressured. Just wish wifi was possible to get in lounge. On the way over I always shop for gifts for the family, and the choice in shop and kiosk is good and prices acceptable. A highlight is the restaurant. We used to travel overnight but now prefer to stay at the ports, then we can enjoy lunch going over and dinner coming back in the excellent restaurant, good food, service and really good value. The only downside for this trip was the coffee bar was closed both coming and going; we wanted a pastry and coffee but could only get a cup of cold coffee at the bar. Normally the coffee bar has good snacks and good hot coffee and tea.

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.
