Santander Portsmouth Ferry reviews

  • "Choppy Seas"

    Ferry left on time but due to rough conditions arrived Portsmouth 3 hours later. Ship was well kept and very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was good.

  • "Great ship, pity about the food"

    The dinner menu options were not the best with the main courses of beef stew that consisted of chewy meat in a thick, overly rich, sauce or chef special of a chewy and fatty lamb shoulder served with greasy fried potatoes. Neither of us ate more than one mouthful and this also applied to a large number of guests. The breakfast menu was the exact opposite, plenty of choice for the inclusive continental breakfast with a cost option full,English for those that wanted it. It was unfortunate that the sea conditions were not good but the crew were amazing, coping with the challenges it presented.

  • "so far so good"

    Cabin super clean as are lounge areas. Staff fine if you speak French. I miss the other services you used to have on the boats, but, I can understand you have to put in more cabins .
