Brittany Ferries' flagship vessel which was damaged by a freak wave last Sunday returned to service on Friday with refurbishment still under way.
The £100m "superferry" Pont-Aven is sailing from Plymouth to Roscoff with 1,330 passengers on board.
The 41,700-tonne vessel, which came into service in March 2004, was damaged during a voyage from Plymouth to Santander in northern Spain.
A 40ft wave off the French coast broke windows and flooded cabins.
The ferry diverted to Roscoff to let passengers off before sailing for repairs at the French port of Brest.
She arrived in Plymouth on Friday morning ready for the afternoon voyage.
Sunday's wave smashed a number of windows on the vessel and sea water damage affected 170 cabins, Brittany Ferries spokesman Stephen Tuckwell said.
Most of them are back in service, but work will continue during Friday's voyage on drying some out and laying new carpets.
