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.

The French city and seaport of St Malo is located in Brittany in the north west of France and lies on the English Channel coast. It was built on an island of granite and has a unique atmosphere, wonderful scenery and lovely beaches. St Malo is popular with tourists from across Europe although for some visitors it is just the start or the end of a vacation to Brittany as they use the town's port to get too and from England. The town is widely regarded as the prettiest channel port in France with its cobbled streets, hotels, bars, restaurants and shops. There are streets and squares lined with tall mansions which are in turn enclosed by a complete circuit of ramparts. The modern harbour now connects the citadel to the mainland.
The Port of St Malo has two new ferry terminals which have good passenger facilities including gift shops, cafes and bureau de change. Ferry services from the port depart to Poole, Portsmouth and Weymouth in England, via the Channel Islands.
The city of Portsmouth is located on the south coast of England in the county of Hampshire. The city, which lies on the English Channel coast, has a long and illustrious maritime history and has connections with the Royal Navy that goes back centuries. The city was also one of the world's greatest shipbuilding centres and constructed the world's first ever dry dock in the 15th century, which is still in use today. The city is still an important base for the Royal Navy and is home to a number of important historical ships including the crowning glory of Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory.
Portsmouth was significantly bombed during the Second World War because of its strategic importance, and as a result the city is a mix of old and new buildings with some of the most historic areas being the Hard and the Point. The nearby suburb of Southsea is a popular destination for families and has a lovely stretch of beach, two piers and a good selection of bars, cafes, restaurants and a theme park at 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.
