Having left Caen at 16.30 pm our group went to book the main restaurant for a meal only to be told that the restaurant open at 18.15 pm on returning at 18.15 pm it still was not opening to 19.15pm .We dined in the self service restaurant which was fine ,but notice the main restaurant was more or less empty. Lost trade for your company.

"Appearances good, cabin noise NOT !"
Reviewed 30 October 2014 by Daniel
The ferry was very clean and tidy, lots of chrome and glass gave it a modern look. Food in the self-service restaurant was quite good and not over-priced compared to other ferry companies. However the cabin I had booked was a waste of money, though it was well equipped its positioning left everything to be desired. It was situated right under the exhaust for the vessel which meant so much noise that I never managed to get any sleep, which was the whole point of having a cabin. Departure and arrival were punctual and off the ferry in Caen within 15 minutes.

Ship was punctual, food on board was very reasonably priced. Ship was clean . Announcements on board were quite difficult to understand very heavily accented. Plenty of room to sit and relax.

Portsmouth is a city and port located in the county of Hampshire on the south coast of England. Portsmouth is the United Kingdom's only island city and is roughly 100 km to the south west of London and 30 km to the east of Southampton. Portsmouth has a long and illustrious maritime past. It is home to the world's oldest dry dock still in use and home to famous ships such as HMS Warrior, the Mary Rose and HMS Victory, Lord Nelson's flagship. The city is also home to a naval base and is home to the Royal Marine Commandoes.
Portsmouth is one of Britain's best-connected ferry ports, linking passengers with nine different destinations. There are three terminals in the extensive harbour. The Continental Ferry Port is the UK's second busiest and is situated just to the north of the Naval Base. To the south of the Naval Base, you will find the Isle of Wight (Ryde) Passenger Ferry Terminal. The Continental Ferry Terminal is served by ferry services to Le Havre in France and Bilbao in Spain. There are also daily crossings to Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo in France, St Helier in Jersey, St Peter Port in Guernsey and to Ryde on the Isle of Wight.
The French town of Caen, in Normandy, is one of the oldest university towns in the country. Bustling with activity, it is a vibrant and attractive city that lies on the River Orne. Brimming with exquisite art and fashion boutiques alongside superb markets selling fine wines and fresh produce, Caen provides an indulgent shopping experience for all. T he rich tastes of Normandy can be experienced not only in the dairy and seafood dishes served in Caen's excellent restaurants but also at the street side crêperies and patisseries. In particular, the Vaugueux quarter has a number of excellent restaurants.
Caen is a fantastic starting point to explore the sites of the Normandy Landings with guided beach tours, and the emotive Caen Memorial Museum, dedicated to peace, is renowned as one of the best WW2 museums in France. The museum focuses on a theme of reconciliation which guides you through the many collections about modern wars and acts of warfare but is particularly centred on WW2.
A ferry service operates between Portsmouth, England, and Caen/Ouistreham running both standard roll-on-roll-off car ferries and supercat fast ferries, with the latter making crossing from March to November. The ferry terminal is roughly 15 km from Caen with a daytime shuttle bus service available for foot passengers.
