"Return from France"

Reviewed 07 September 2014 by Jonathan

We traveled Portsmouth to Le Havre (and back two weeks later) at the end of Aug 14. On the way out there was a slight delay of an hour but as we were traveling overnight it did not impact too much. Cabins were all booked so we had to sleep in chairs - worked out OK even with 8 and 10 yr old children. Return fine - they showed a number of Disney DVDs which kept the children occupied for the 5hr journey. Food good quality/tasty but a little expensive over £50 for four - cafeteria style.

"A good experience all round"

Reviewed 06 September 2014 by Andrew

I'm happy to say that everything went smoothly from start to finish. The ship was surprisingly quiet and the staff friendly and professional. The boarding was easy and we'd come prepared to bed down in a seat as we could only pre-book a single birth, but to our surprise were given an upgrade to accommodate three of us. The cabin was comfortable and well equipped so we had a good night's sleep once we'd explored the ship and had a coffee. We didn't try the food on the way out but it didn't look bad. The seating was comfortable and we discovered a quiet area tucked away on the upper deck which would have been fine if we hadn't had the cabin. All in all, a good experience, better than expected.

"Efficient and Pleasant Crossing"

Reviewed 04 September 2014 by James

We sailed from Portsmouth to Le Harvre and back a week later in late August. On the way out we were on the Etretat which is Brittany Ferries 'budget' sailing; and on the way back it was the fast ferry - Normandie Express. I was a bit concerned about the fact the it was supposed to be a budget sailing, but in the end there wasn't any need to worry. The seating was comfortable and it didn't feel overcrowded, despite the car deck being full. There was a small cinema which was extra, but we put the kids in there to watch the film which seemed a cost-effective way of relieving the boredom of a long trip. Only a couple of small points - the car deck is open to the elements and our car was salt-encrusted at the end, and the family thought the food from the cafe was just OK (e.g. overcooked chips), but overall the time seemed to pass very quickly. On the way back the ferry actually left 10 minutes early despite being full - I think that must be a first for me! Again, plenty of room aboard and it didn't feel overcrowded. No queues at the bar but we didn't try the food (the sea was a bit rough!), but overall very pleasant and efficient.
