  • "Bilbao to Portsmouth on Cap Finistere"

    The most striking thing is how charming the crewe were ..... extremely charming .... all of them .... and at all times. Overall a nice boat with convivial furnishings and pleasant bars. Pleasant shop and restaurant and shop. Cabins are quite small but very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. Our cabin was an external one so really appreciated the light and views of the sea. Cafe is good .... partially open to the elements so good in bot weather.

Bilbao Guide

The Spanish city of Bilbao, located in the autonomous region of the Basque Country, lies in the north central part of Spain and is around 14km to the south of the Bay of Biscay, where the estuary of Bilbao is formed. The city is the capital of the province of Biscay and is the main commercial and cultural hub of northern Spain. One of the main drivers behind the city's reputation is the Guggenheim Museum which draws visitors in to the city who then find out for themselves the other interesting attractions the city has on offer. The city's location makes it the perfect port of entry to the northern Iberian Peninsular and to south west France.

The city's port lies on the Bilbao Abra Bay, and along the Estuary of Bilbao in Biscay (the Basque Country). The port's main facilities can be found in the Santurtzi and Zierbena municipalities, approximately 15 km west of Bilbao. Brittany Ferries operate the Portsmouth to Bilbao route, with their boat, the MV Cap Finistère.


Portsmouth Guide

Portsmouth is an English city in the county of Hampshire, lying on the English Channel coast. Leading ferry operators including Condor Ferries, Wightlink and Brittany Ferries serve the city's port from British and international locations including Le Havre, Bilbao, Cherbourg, Caen, St Malo, St Helier, St Peter Port and Ryde.

The city boasts a long, illustrious maritime history and has connections with the Royal Navy that go back centuries. It was also one of the world's greatest shipbuilding centres and constructed the first ever dry dock, in the 15th century, which is still in use today. Portsmouth is still an important base for the navy and is home to a number of historic ships including the crowning glory of Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory.

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.
