The boarding and dissembling were well organised and completed promptly. However it was a little scarf as the ramp onto the deck was very steep. We went to the restaurant where there was a good choice of meals and excellent service. Our cabin was very clean with quite comfortable pillows and we had a good night's sleep. As I am not a very good sea traveller this was an ideal way of doing the crossing and we will be doing the same trip next year.

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.
