"5 day trip"
Reviewed 09 December 2014 by Colin
Boat was quiet but not over warm. Loading in UK seemed to take ages whereas in France we were whisked straight on, having arrived 60 minutes before sailing at each port. Unloading seemed lengthy, due to much manoeuvring of trucks, 30 minutes plus in France. Overall 7/10 Will travel with Direct Ferries again.

At a price that blew all the competion out of the water, we had good meals and comfortable seating. It's just a pity though, as with all cross channel ferries, the provision of a comfortable and economic sleeping facilities does not exist for those who cannot afford a cabin on the overnight crossing. A rethink on the Recliner Seats is desperately needed; very few people can sleep in them, most opt for whatever floor space is available.

"A far better alternative."

We took our car over to France using the Portsmouth to Le Havre crossing. As there were very few passengers on board, we were informed that they would stop one of the engines. This made us one hour late in arriving in Le Harve. The food was also of pretty poor quality. Six weeks later, for our return crossing I decided to travel with DFDS. This was a much better appointed ship with better food and service. It was on time and was even cheaper that the outward carrier. Many thanks, DFDS.

I used the ferry last week and found most things to be satisfactory. The bed in the cabin was comfortable enough, although I could have done with a thicker pillow, and the blanket wasn't sufficient for my travelling companion who needed to wear her fleece in bed. I was delighted to get on and off the ferry very quickly as frequently even though I invariably arrive early, I am one of the last off the boat.( perhaps because usually I travel in a higher vehicle) I didn't use the restaurant, but the food looked appetizing. The ferry I think was the Seven Sisters, not the Norman Voyager. I find LD Lines to be much better value for money than Brittany Ferries, and it will be a pity that this route may close.

The French town and port of Le Havre is located in the Haute-Normandie region of north west France, and lies on the estuary of the River Seine. It is France's second port for total traffic, after Marseille, but is the largest container port in France. Following considerable damage during the Second World War, the town of Le Havre rebuilt, with many of its buildings designed by the architect Auguste Perret in the pot-war period. The new post-war architecture can appear rather brutal to some people but it is fair to say that the town's architecture, for better or for worse, is unlike any other town in France. There are, however, some interesting buildings in the town that are worth visiting. So much in fact that the city has since been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Port of Le Havre has two ferry terminals. The Terminal de Grand Bretagne (the British Terminal) is still in use although the Terminal Irelande (the Irish Terminal) is no longer in use for services to Ireland. facilities at the port include a convenience store, a cafe and a bureau de change in the terminal and a tourist information office on the Boulevard Clemanceau. There are daily sailings to Portsmouth
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.
