"Hard times up-top"
Reviewed 10 November 2014 by John Inman
Whilst the cabin was generally fine, both bunk-style beds were very hard on the anatomy and pillows lacking in support. There was only one thin one each. Climbing onto the upper bunk is proving harder with advancing years too so, if you are 70yrs+, be well warned! The morning came around remarkably quickly however, especially as it was supposed to be a rough passage! The food was excellent though and the restaurant particularly nice.

Great way to travel to Spain enjoyed the experience when on board, bit of a wait getting on board but after that no complaints.

Plymouth is a city located on the south coast of the county of Devon in the south west of the United Kingdom. Plymouth is around 300 km to the south west of London and lies between the mouths of the River Plym and the River Tamar, where they both join Plymouth Sound. Plymouth today is strongly influenced by its long maritime history. It is, or has been, a centre of shipbuilding and seafaring generally. Her Majesty's Naval Base Devonport remains the largest operational naval base in Western Europe.
Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city packed full of attractions. There is something for everyone among the city streets, surrounding countryside and marine environment beyond. Wander the Barbican’s quaint cobbled quayside following in the Pilgrim Father’s footsteps or visit the National Marine Aquarium with its deepwater fish tanks. Sample Plymouth’s finest export at the Blackfriars Gin Distillery or take a boat trip around the Sound from Mayflower Steps.
A regular international ferry service operates from Millbay taking cars and foot passengers directly to Roscoff in France and Santander in Spain. There is also a passenger ferry operating between Stonehouse and the Cornish hamlet of Cremyll, which is believed to have operated continuously since 1204. There is also a pedestrian ferry from the Mayflower Steps to Mount Batten, which is an alternative to using the Tamar Bridge via the Torpoint Ferry (vehicle and pedestrian) across the River Tamar.
Based around Santander Bay (Bahia de Santander) and next to both the Bay of Biscay and the Cantabrian Sea (Mar Cantábrico), this popular, modern Spanish city is home to a busy port. However, it is the sparkling beaches of Santander that draw the summer crowds, particularly around the elegant beach resort of El Sardinero, where the Playa Primera de El Sardinero is one beach that really stands out from the others. The warm summer months are when Santander is at its most popular and apart from sunbathing on the numerous sandy beaches, many visitors choose to enjoy a cruise around the coastline, or a stroll along the Avenida de la Reina Victoria or the waterfront Paseo Maritimo promenade. Other visitors choose to hang out in Santander's busy fishing quarter, which is known as the Barrio Pesquero and the very best place to find excellent seafood restaurants.
The Port of Santander is host to ferry services to Plymouth and Portsmouth in the United Kingdom. The crossing time for Portsmouth is around 24 hours and to Plymouth, 20 hours.
