"No fuss efficiency!"
Reviewed 22 April 2014 by Adam
The Amorique, which crosses the channel from Roscoff to Plymouth, provides a smooth efficient crossing. The day crossing is quick and very pleasant, although the wifi could be better, the staff are hard working and efficient without being to 'in your face'. He night crossing also is very efficient, the cabins are clean and mean a good rest before the long drive south once arriving in France.

Very briefly, we enjoyed our journey and found the ferry and its facilities very comfortable and spacious, with good food in the restaurant we used and helpful staff on board. The crossing in the middle of the chanel was rather 'lively' but the ferry was handled well by the crew and we had little discomfort.

The opening of the deep-water port at Roscoff in 1973 was part of a general attempt to revitalize the Breton economy. The ferry services to Plymouth and to Cork are intended not just to bring tourists, but also to revive the traditional trading links between the Celtic nations of Brittany, Ireland and southwest England. In fact, Roscoff has long been a significant port. It was here that Mary Queen of Scots landed in 1548 on her way to Paris to be engaged to François, the son and heir of Henri II of France. And it was here that Bonnie Prince Charlie, the Young Pretender, landed in 1746 after his defeat at Culloden. Roscoff itself has, however, remains a small resort, where almost all activity is confined to rue Gambetta and to the old port - the rest of the roads are residential back streets full of retirement homes and institutions. One factor in preserving its old character is that both the ferry port and the gare SNCF are some way from the centre.
Plymouth is a city in the South West of England, or alternatively the Westcountry, and is situated within the traditional county of Devon. It is located at the mouths of the rivers Plym and Tamar and at the head of one of the world's largest and most spectacular natural harbours, the Plymouth Sound. The city has a rich maritime past and was once one of the two most important Royal Navy bases in Britain, a factor that made the city a prime target of the Luftwaffe during the Second World War. After the destruction of the dockyards and city centre in the blitz of 1941, Plymouth was rebuilt under the guidance of architect Patrick Abercrombie and is now one of the few remaining naval dockyards in Britain and the largest naval base in Western Europe. Important locations in the city include The Royal Citadel, Devonport Dockyard and The Barbican from where the Pilgrims left for the New World in 1620.
