Everything was very good, punctually, cleanliness etc my only complaint is the noise in the cabin, we had a outside club class cabin which was so noisy we couldn't sleep, we had up graded from a two berth inside cabin and wish we hadn't.

"a great outbound crossing, a not so great inbound crossing"
Reviewed 15 March 2014 by Jean Marc
Calm and stress-free crossings, with a calm sea, the journey on board was very pleasant, except for two aspects: -the barman during the inbound trip was very unpleasant -it was so hot in our cabin that we couldn't sleep. we tried unsuccessfully to turn the temperature button. it's a shame because we booked the cabin for that period.

St-Malo is a port city in Brittany northern France on the English Channel. Walled and built with grey granite stone, modern St-Malo traces its origins to a monastic settlement founded by saints Aaron and Brendan early in the sixth century. In later centuries it became notorious as the home of a fierce breed of pirate-mariners, who were never quite under anybody's control but their own; for four years from 1590, St-Malo even declared itself to be an independent republic. The corsaires of St-Malo not only forced English ships passing up the Channel to pay tribute, but also brought wealth from further afield. Jacques Cartier, who colonized Canada, lived in and sailed from St-Malo, as did the first colonists to settle the Falklands - hence the islands' Argentinian name, Las Malvinas. Now inseparably attached to the mainland, St-Malo is the most visited place in Brittany - thanks to its superb old citadelle.
Britain's foremost naval station, Portsmouth occupies the bulbous peninsula of Portsea Island, on the eastern flank of a huge, easily defended harbour. The ancient Romans raised a fortress on the northernmost edge of this inlet, and a small port developed during the Norman era, but this strategic location wasn't fully exploited until Tudor times, when Henry VII established the world's first dry dock here and made Portsmouth a royal dockyard. It has flourished ever since and nowadays Portsmouth is a large industrialized city, its harbour clogged with naval frigates, ferries bound for the continent or the Isle of Wight, and swarms of dredgers and tugs.
Old Portsmouth, based around the original harbour, preserves some Georgian and a little Tudor character. East of here is Southsea , a residential suburb of terraces with a resort strewn along its shingle beach, where a mass of B&Bs face stoic naval monuments.
