"A wonderful end to a glorious holiday"
Reviewed 14 October 2014 by Anthony
An excellent ship with helpful crew and comfortabl3e cabin. But easily the highlight was dinner in the restaurant. Magnificent surroundings, professional staff and the most delicious food imaginable - all at reasonable cost. Just perfect after a long drive from the Bordeaux region. We could not recommend the 'Bretagne' too highly.

WE arrived on board anticipating your regular ferry but were blown away by the quality and service we received in the full service restaurant. My wife and I both opted for the full a la carte menu and were treated to without doubt one of the best meals we had in Europe during our 5 week trip. The food was exceptional, the presentation was superb and the price was quite reasonable. The inside cabin which we ended up with, as we were a little late with our reservation was well ventilated, great sound insulation, pleasant and comfortable and we both had a full nights sleep with no disturbances. Only problem was as we enjoyed breakfast before disembarkation, we were both showered with glass and orange juice as another passenger dropped a full bottle of orange juice from their tray onto the tiled walkway between the tables, right next to us.

A very enjoyable crossing - the staff on the ship were extremely helpful and friendly. There was plenty to do and the 8+ hours flew by. The food in the restaurant was good quality and good value for money.

A comfortable and relaxing journey. The food was very good and not expensive. Will certainly do this ferry crossing again although it has to said the sea conditions was very benign.

St Malo is a city and seaport located on the North Sea coast in Brittany in the north west of France. St Malo was built on a granite island and has a unique ancient ambience, breathtaking scenery and stunning beaches. The ancient walled city of St-Malo is extremely popular with visitors from all over Europe and in particular the UK. For some it represents the start or end of a holiday to Brittany via the St-Malo ferry terminal, whilst for others this historic port/resort is their main destination. Today, St-Malo is considered by many to be the most attractive channel port in France and its cobbled streets are brimming with hotels, restaurants, bars and shops. Tall granite mansion blocks line the characterful lanes and squares, in turn enclosed by a complete circuit of massive ramparts. The modern harbour now connects the citadel to the mainland.
Over one million passengers pass through the Port of Saint Malo every year. Many have arrived from the UK, Jersey, Guernsey or Ireland. The port boasts two newly built ferry terminals, which include several gift and souvenir outlets, currency exchange services and a café. Saint-Malo is a terminal for ferry services to Poole, Portsmouth and Weymouth in England via the Channel Islands.
The city of Portsmouth is located on the couth coast of England in the county of Hampshire. The city has a long and strong connection to the Royal Navy spanning centuries and was once an integral part of the world's shipbuilding industry, building the first ever dry dock in the late 15th century, which is still used today. Portsmouth remains a significant base for the Royal Navy and is home to many distinguished ships, with its crowning glory being the flagship of Lord Nelson, the HMS Victory. Due to its strategic prominence, Portsmouth was bombed quite extensively during WWII and so is now very much a mixture of new and old, with some of the most historic areas including the Hard and the Point. The suburb of Southsea is a firm favourite of families holidaying in Portsmouth and features a lengthy stretch of beach, two piers and a good tourist information centre. Southsea is a particularly lively part of Portsmouth and has many bars, cafes and a fun theme park at the Clarence Pier.
Ferry services from the city's port depart to Le Havre, Bilbao, Cherbourg, Caen, St Malo, St Helier, St Peter Port and Ryde.
