"Portsmouth-caen crossing"

Reviewed 18 August 2014 by Andrea

I have not travelled with Brittany ferries for some years as I am not a good sailor. I was incredibly impressed with the level of service on this crossing. The staff were friendly and helpful, the entertainment fo rthe children was a blessing, allowing parents to have a bit of a break while their kids were being entertained (the panto was a great experience for my 5 year old). The best thing however was the food in the restaurante which can only be decsibed as outstanding. The buffet table of starters was a gastronomic delight. The only problem was leaving enough room for the outstanding main course. Beautiful food cooked with great skill. I was not particularly looking forward to the ferry crossing, especially with 2 young children but I have to say I really enjoyed it. Far less stressful than air travel.

"French ferry"

Reviewed 18 August 2014 by Peter

I booked the trip Portsmouth to Cherbourg for 3 people through Directferries at about half the cost of going direct. FANTASTIC. I wanted to change the destination to Caen. I rang Directferries, got through within about a minute, spoke to a VERY helpful lady & within 3 minutes had changed the destination & paid the extra £15. Incredibly good service. Thank you very much. I will always use Directferries. This looks like an advert but its true!! The ferry was clean, comfortable & on time. Thanks Peter

"Wonderful Experience"

Reviewed 14 August 2014 by Barry

We sailed from Portsmouth to Caen on July 14th, the ship was excellent, food really good and value for money. We sailed on time on the outward and return journey. We had reserved recliner seats in a quiet lounge which we would do again. Really happy with the experience.

"Overall a good experience"

Reviewed 14 August 2014 by Lucy

I found my recent ferry crossing on Brittany Farries very good. We had a cabin which I would not have wanted to travel without especially as we have small children. The restaurants are good and the shops have a wide range of products. The soft play area is great and really helped keep my kids entertained. Generally it was a good experience my only criticism was that there was a face painter on board who only did 15 children - there were 300 children on the boat. I think it would have been fairer not to offer it to anyone,
