"Nice ferry but tardy!"
The facilities on the ferry were pretty good, recliner seats in the quiet lounge at the front on the way out and a four berth cabin coming back. Food was also quite good and reasonably priced. However ferry was about 35 mins late leaving Portsmouth and therefore arrived in Jersey late. Got a text on the afternoon we were due to come back saying that ferry would be 80 mins late in leaving Jersey so that messed up the plans a bit, however arrived in Portsmouth at about the scheduled time.

"Jersey & Back"
We took the ferry from Portsmouth to Jersey and returned via the fast ferry to Poole. Both services were efficient, the ship's were clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. I would use the service again.

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.
