"Cabins far too hot, everything else good"
Boarding took a long time no reason given for the delay, may have been because of the 28 vintage rolls royces that got to go on first, Food in the restaurant really excellent. Very good singer in the main bar, but she needs a stylist to advise her on clothes. Inner cabin so hot it was hard to breath, never mind sleep. Very quick getting off at St Malo. Quick boarding on return, we had a day cabin, which was good for the long crossing, quite restful. Quiz in the bar was fun, although didn't seem to be advertised, just info at the bar, so only 3 teams. Lovely food at the self service restaurant, had one of the best Entrecote steaks I have had perfectly cooked to my request.

I thought the crossing was excellent. All the staff were friendly, helpful and polite. The catering was a good standard , and the prices were reasonable. Considering you are a captive audience, the could be a lot worse. I thought it was a very pleasant experience.

"A perfect start"
Loading with car was easy. Finding cabin was easy. Abers restaurant food was delicious, the buffet is to die for. Although there were 2 of us, we are in our seventies, so we had booked a 4 berth cabin, glad we did, compact and 'bijou!' Disembarking took time as the ferry was pretty full. Staff all helpful, smiling and delightful. The perfect start to our week away.
