The ship is great, the staff are lovely especially Maria Pereira, what a refined lady she is, an asset to her employer. Crossing was good, which helps.

The trip was easy to book through directferries.co.uk and was almost half the price of some the rival companies running ferries to Santander. The trip was excellent. Staff of lD lines were very friendly and helpful. The cabins were extremely clean and air conditioned. The Norman Asturias is not a large ferry but contains all the required comforts. A good bar, an area for viewing films, a bistro, a small children's play area and a small shop. Bistro food was fine and not too expensive. My only criticism would be that the credit card machine did not work on the journey back. All in all though a very comfotable and enjoyable trip, great atmosphere on the ship (not as crowded as larger boats)and comes highly recommended, especially at the price.

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!
