Our first experience of this crossing as we usually use the Dover/Calais shorter crossing. Very impressed with the quality of the ferry, more luxurious than the ferries on the shorter crossings. Watched a film in the cinema but thought £6.50 was a little expensive when its only a small screen, small cinema and the sound wasn't brilliant but still great to have this facility. Had a meal in the self service restaurant and the food was very good and very reasonable prices for food and drinks in the bar unlike airports and planes which charge a fortune! Would definitely use again.

Of all the ferry crossings I have used this was a wonderful experience and now will choose this company as my first choice. The cabin was immaculate particularly the bathroom en suite, as was the rest of the ship. The staff were pleasant and helpful and I felt comfortingly safe as a single lady on her travels abroad. The breakfast looked wonderful.the eggs freshly fried on display a rare sight these days For a ferry crossing I felt it was most luxurious in spite of my reticence with thought of an overnight crossing and now will be my first choice on future occasions. Thank you Brittany Ferries for a most restful and pleasant experience.

"All round good crossing"
Reviewed 10 November 2013 by Caron
I had a good journey on the ferry,loading and loading quickly and a good crossing. Only thing that wasn't right was the internet access, I couldn't get on. Though they had given me a password the system would not ask for it and I could not log on. All the staff could say was that they were not engineers/technitions. So for 4 hours I had no access and my plan had been to catch up on some emails etc.

Travelling to and from France on board the Mont St Michel/Normandie was just an extension to our holiday. The children's play area kept the grandchildren amused for a while using up their energy before retiring to our cabin. They were so excited to have a cabin with their own bed to sleep in. It did not take them long before they were fast asleep.If you can reserve a cabin at the time of booking it is well worth it. An enjoyable crossing with helpful staff. I cant wait to go 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.
