Portsmouth Jersey Ferry reviews

  • "Commodore Clipper"

    Nice small ship with great facilities. Spotlessly clean, stable in the storm (Kate) continued to operate when all the high speed services we're confined to port.

  • "Deserves more than three stars"

    If your life is all rush, take the fast ferry. For a real ship and a pleasant (winter) crossing, take the Commodore Clipper, (which runs in all weather) and book the Club lounge by day and the Deluxe cabin by night. Our cabin was airy and beautifully presented, even a fruit bowl. My only regret is that the food in the dining room could be better, especially since the crossing allows time for a better dining experience! The ship is clean, stable in all weathers and crewed by well trained and courteous staff.
