"St Malo - Portsmouth"
Having crossed two weeks earlier on the fast crossing between Portsmouth & Cherbourg we'd favoured the ease of staying in St Malo & leaving on the 10:30 morning ferry. We'd not given it much more thought than that, however we were both pleasantly surprised by how much we & more so the kids enjoyed it. We did have very calm seas but more so the boat crew, facilities were excellent & the kids loved the panto. All in all a very easy & surprisingly relaxing finish to the end of the holiday.

"Great service on board!"
We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the food served in the main restaurant. The quality and range of choices on the buffet and a la carte menu were excellent and the service was faultless. It was good to have the option of a quiet space in the reclining seat area, something we would have appreciated on the crossing to Santander where we could not escape the loud children's quiz entertainment. The ship is, I believe, due for a refit. It is looking a little worn but overall a very positive experience.

A three week visit had turned into a fraught three months through serious illness. We needed a relaxing journey home and that was provided. From the quayside to disembarkation, the staff members were extremely pleasant, the meal was excellent, the cabin clean and comfortable and the crossing was smooth. Thank you.

"MOTORCYCLE TRIP HOME"
I had to make a quick change to the dates of return. On to the phone, quickly changed the date and time, easy. All went fantastically well and to top it all the weather was the best we had all holiday sitting at the back of the ferry. I would definitely use the ferry again to get to that part of France.

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.
