I have made many ferry journeys taking vehicles backward and forward to Europe and have always been a cheapskate choosing to sleep in the chairs rather than booking a room. After the last journey from Civitaveccia to Barcelona on Grimaldy I swore I would only ever travel with a proper cabin to sleep in. This decision has transformed my experience and ensured that I arrive at my destinations relaxed and rested. Now, if we could only convince the shipping companies to charge a sensible price for the use of a cupboard overnight, they seem to think that what they offer is first class! The Pont Aven is a lovely boat and the crew always seem particularly friendly. I think the Plymouth or Portsmouth to Saint Malo is one of my favourite routes as the timings are perfect for onward travel.
