  • "Crossing from Normandy to Portsmouth"

    We recently crossed from Normandy. Our trip was relaxing. The ferry had plenty of room to get up and move around. The seats were comfortable. It was very enjoyable.

  • "Nice experience"

    Had a most enjoyable sea crossing to Roscoff, smoother than any cat, train or plane journey. The vessel is clean, we'll equipped, perhaps some improvement could be done on the signposting of different areas.

  • "online payment "

    was trip outbound good,return trip for a couple of different reasons I was coming back early,but with time running out at port I tried to finalise ammendment to my ticket on the website but payment wouldn't go through, had to phone my bank they checked that my card was fine and it was the direct ferries site that wasn't right,time was running out for sailing,luckily for me there was 1 Brittany ferry operator onside she sorted me out.the way the ship was hurried clean when it came into port was terrible,with all the normal staff away because of covid etc.the young group of cleaners looked a bit unsavoury and in a rushed untrained state was terrible,whole corridors weren't ready for new passengers, but I might add these young band of dodgy looking cleaners actually done not a bad job under the circumstances, it was the company trying to get the turnaround done with untrained staff,but hey the plane companies, hotels etc all in the same situation. ps, not you problem but border control at Portsmouth return was nothing but absolutely shocking,2 hours on the tarmac very slow it would put me off travelling abroad, well unless in a dinghy, where you get processed much qiucker,o
