What a surprise! This is the way to go as far as Imam concerned. I have not used the ferry before, but on my way to the World Equestrian Games, we took the overnight ferry to Caen. The crossing was smooth as can be, the boat well appointed and the cabin was all you needed and very comfortable ( though quite tight). All in all, a very positive experience.

This service ran like clockwork. The check in was quick and easy. My ticket included a pre-booked reclining seat which was in the salon right at the front of the ship, so great views. The ship was spotlessly clean and the staff I spoke to were very friendly and helpful. I would use this service again and recommend it.

Britain's foremost naval station, Portsmouth occupies the bulbous peninsula of Portsea Island, on the eastern flank of a huge, easily defended harbour. The ancient Romans raised a fortress on the northernmost edge of this inlet, and a small port developed during the Norman era, but this strategic location wasn't fully exploited until Tudor times, when Henry VII established the world's first dry dock here and made Portsmouth a royal dockyard. It has flourished ever since and nowadays Portsmouth is a large industrialized city, its harbour clogged with naval frigates, ferries bound for the continent or the Isle of Wight, and swarms of dredgers and tugs.
Old Portsmouth, based around the original harbour, preserves some Georgian and a little Tudor character. East of here is Southsea , a residential suburb of terraces with a resort strewn along its shingle beach, where a mass of B&Bs face stoic naval monuments.
Caen is a city in the north west France. It is the administrative capital of the Calvados département, and the capital of the administrative Lower Normandy région whose inhabitants are called Caennais. Caen is known for historical buildings built in the time of William the Conqueror, who was buried here. From the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, Caen expanded in times of Peace, building its urban image ; private Italian-style mansions, Saint-Sauveur Square and the convent buildings of the two abbeys. In the wake of the poet, François de Malherbe, the city boasted an intense intellectual era. During the 19th Century, the city entered the industrial era with the railroad and canal linking Caen to the sea in 1857. On June 6th 1944, Caen set its mark on the world stage with the Normandy Landings. From its ashes, the city grew to prove the values of peace, solidarity and human rights, so well-reflected today in Caen Memorial.
