Both trips (to and from Jersey) were excellent. I was travelling with two elderly people and we had been allocated seats on the top deck which meant a lot of stairs to climb. On speaking to the Manager/Purser stationed on the middle deck, we were given seats on both outward and inward trips which, I assume, are kept for this sort of eventuality and for people with disabilities. The food offering on board was adequate and serving staff were extremely polite and cheerful. Thank you Condor Ferries.

Only comments relate to why the screens were not used to show films during the relatively long journey. Also, we would have appreciated the possibility of an earlier sailing say at 5pm from Jersey. After docking at 23.15 we chose to drive back to Hertfordshire so did not get home until after 2am.

We had a rough crossing, but despite this all the staff were very attentive. Right from when they took our suitcase the men are very cheerful and friendly, right up to people being sea sick, all the staff were. Dry attentive. Had breakfast on the boat - very good value and well cooked. Return journey on Su day equally rough but again very good service on the boat.

Poole is a coastal town, port and tourist destination in the traditional county of Dorset in southern England. The is famed for its large natural harbour, situated on the shores of the English Channel.
The Poole Harbour area has been inhabited for well over 2,000 years.
Poole is positioned on a very popular stretch of coastline, with the resort of Bournemouth to the east, Studland to the south and the Jurassic coast southwest. The town has grown rapidly, and Sandbanks, a small sand spit across part of the harbour mouth, is so popular that it has the fourth highest land value, by area, in the world. There are exclusive homes both on Sandbanks and the whole of the area stretching east from the Harbour to The Avenue (the eastern boundary of Poole).
Jersey is a British crown dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. Along with the Guernsey it forms the grouping known as the Channel Islands.
The defence of all these islands is the responsibility of the United Kingdom. However, Jersey is not part of the UK, nor the European Union, but is rather a separate possession of the Crown.
Jersey’s prehistoric period produced a rich legacy of artefacts. Remnants of a great French forest that existed over 10,000 years ago, when the Island was part of the continent can still be seen today at St Ouen when there is a low tide. Flints and crude stone tools were left by hunters in La Cotte a la Chevre (Goat’s cave) now perched 60 feet (18 m) above the sea level on the north coast of St Ouen and La Cotte de St Brelade is one of the most important Palaeolithic sites in Europe.
