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.

The ferry to and from Caen was only a quarter full so very comfortable as there was a choice of where to sit. Breakfast good in restaurant on way out and self service on way back. Coffee not good from cafe. Wifi very slow even in wifi areas. Unloading very fast ans efficient.

We really enjoyed this crossing. The ship was clean. The decor was good. Staff were helpful.. The shop had an excellent variety of things. The self service restaurant was surprisingly good though we would have preferred the waiter service restaurant. Unfortunately this didn't open until the evening (our crossing was 3.45, arriving 9.30) and we wanted a meal before 7.30. We would normally take the short crossing from Dover but were near Portsmouth visiting friends. We found this Brittany Ferries ship far superior to a well known rival that sails out of Dover and would certainly take the crossing again.

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.
