"an amazing journey from Dijon to Poole"
Reviewed 18 July 2014 by Elizabeth
We arrived early and boarding the vessel went smoothly as did disembarking. Lovely to have the cars up on deck and be able to return to them if we wanted. The passage was smooth and the ferry so stable even in the Bay of Biscay! Our favourite was the sundeck where we enjoyed cold drinks. The crew were friendly, professional and helpful. The ferry was small (saw why when we entered Poole harbour!)and simple - no fuss restaurants, shops etc but cabin was clean and very comfortable. The self service restaurant was very good and food costs extremely reasonable. In all it was a perfect way to end the holiday rather than drive from the Pyrenees to Calais! I would recommend the experience to anyone! thank you LD Lines!

Great start to our trip to Northern Spain. Easy check in at Poole and although the facilities on board are very basic everything you need is on hand. Brilliant value for money would definitely use again and recommend to others.

Traveled in July 2014. Loading at Gijon was pretty chaotic and made the ferry one and a half hours late in departing. Our passports and documents were checked 3 times at Gijon. Once at the reception booth, once by the Spanish Civil Guard and a third time by an LD employee. Once aboard the ferry it was very clean. Cabins were comfortable and staff were polite and obliging. The food in the restaurant was of excellent quality and very reasonably priced. Cheap even! The beer was good. If I had to look for a criticism or minor niggle it would be that the on board shop is very small and not well stocked with reading material. All in all a very pleasant journey and experience.
