    The check-in and security procedures were quick and easy, the terminal had a pleasant feel about it and the crossing itself was smooth and on time, both departing and arriving. The food on-board was excellent as well!

  • "St hellier to san malo"

    There were some problems with the ship on this journey - one of the 4 engines not working meant we were delayed by 30minutes. They did however notify us in advance of this problem/delay, so what more could they do. Loading our car was very efficient and easy and staff were generally helpful- crossing was a bit rough, but they can't control the weather/sea

  • "A rough sea but a stable ship"

    I enjoyed my crossing with Condor. Although the sea was rough the ship was quite stable. As I walk with crutches I did not walk around the ship. I was in the Club lounge where the service was very good. The seats were very comfortable and having table service made it possible to have lunch before arriving at my destination. A very enjoyable trip.

  • "Condor St Malo to Guernsey"

    Great service - helpful and caring staff - my sister and I could not have had a nicer trip. It was a little choppy and the soothing motion of the he ship was very relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed your sandwiches and fresh fruit -most satisfying. Thank you for a very pleasant way to go home.

  • "Security "

    So on the way out from Jersey we go through all Manor of searches and scanners. Very thorough in all aspects of security. Coming back nil nada nothing anyone could have boarded that ship. In these days of high security French must up their game.

  • "To and from Jersey St Helier with Condoe."

    Overall the trip (inbound and outbound) was quite enjoyable and comfortable. The crew (staff) were all helpful and polite and the food was quite acceptable. The return trip was delayed by five hours due to bad weather, we were warned of this in good time by Condor. A pleasant experience.

  • "Quick, easy and comfortable"

    Going from St Malo, France to St Helier, Jersey could not be easier. The Ferry Terminal at both ends is clean, bright, comfortable and all the facilities one could want. The security and immigration (from non-EU passengers) is easy and not burdensome. Once on board the Ferry you can have either french or english influenced food of good quality and similar value to Jersey. Far preferable way to travel than by Air if you can.
