"Night ferry Guernsey - Portsmouth"
We have indeed taken the ferry from Guernsey to Portsmouth. Firstly, there is no mention that the journey is via Jersey and moors there for a couple of hours. Secondly, there were no cabins available on the night ferry, so you are given a reclining chair, but it was extremely cold. And then it truns out that there's a plastic bag with blankets in some corner! Nobody knows this and nobody tells you either. Altogether not such a great experience on this ship.

I had booked a disabled cabin for the overnight crossing for my elderly father's convenience. I was not told at the time of booking either that the ensuite toilet facility would be shared with the other adjacent cabin, nor that it did not feature a shower like the regular cabins. We may or may not still have booked it, but we ought certainly to have had clearer information about the options. It was a disconcerting surprise. In the main restaurant only a single coffee machine was working and this caused enormous delays at breakfast from 5.30am onwards, meaning that it could scarcely be completed before it was time to descend to the vehicle decks. The staff were extremely helpful and the ship itself was kept clean and arrived punctually.

"Conventional Ferry travel between Guernsey /Portsmouth"
I travelled as a foot passenger and was completely satisfied with every aspect of the experience. As I have mobility difficulty, particularly on stairs, I was impressed with the care offered and the pleasant service on the mini-bus. Whether with our car or as foot passengers I would always recommend this ferry.

Forming one of the Channel Islands in the English Channel, the island of Guernsey is a possession of the British Crown and lies around 50 km to the west of the Normandy coast in France and 120 km to the south of Weymouth, on the south coast of England. The island has a milder climate than much of the UK which is why the island's inhabitants seem to make the most of the outdoors. There are beautiful beaches to visit, cliff paths to trek along and some island hopping to be had. During the summer months, a spot of 'al fresco' dining may even be possible. Guernsey's capital, St Peter Port, is characterised by its pretty cobbled streets and beautiful marina.
There are many things for visitors to see and do on the island. The island's spectacular coastline and countryside provide the backdrop to pursue a wide range of outdoor activities including coasteering, climbing, cycling, diving, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and sailing.
The island's port is also in St Peter Port and is only a 10 minute walk to the city centre. The ferry terminal provides services to other Channel Islands, France and the UK mainland. The terminal building has many shops and restaurants.
The city of Portsmouth is located on the south coast of England in the county of Hampshire. The city, which lies on the English Channel coast, has a long and illustrious maritime history and has connections with the Royal Navy that goes back centuries. The city was also one of the world's greatest shipbuilding centres and constructed the world's first ever dry dock in the 15th century, which is still in use today. The city is still an important base for the Royal Navy and is home to a number of important historical ships including the crowning glory of Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory.
Portsmouth was significantly bombed during the Second World War because of its strategic importance, and as a result the city is a mix of old and new buildings with some of the most historic areas being the Hard and the Point. The nearby suburb of Southsea is a popular destination for families and has a lovely stretch of beach, two piers and a good selection of bars, cafes, restaurants and a theme park at 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.
