  • "Smooth crossing"

    Having driven to Spain via Calais, we decided to try the return journey by ferry from Bilbao to Portsmouth. If we drive to Spain in the future we will always consider using the overnight ferry to Bilbao as it was straight forward and made the journey far more pleasurable.

  • "Happy customer"

    We enjoyed our ferry return trip from Bilboa to Portsmouth with Brittany Ferries. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were pleasantly surprised with the cabin size and it had a good ensuite, great value for money. We enjoyed the meals we had in the restaurant. Overall very good. We would definitely use this company again. We booked with Direct Ferries, again a very good company to deal with.

  • "Great crossing "

    All was well, the cabin was clean, bit of a stain on the bed quilt as it ruffled out of the cover was not so pleasant. But generally was very pleased with the service. I think it is a bit of a rip off now asking for more money for having a bike on the back of the car.

  • "Journey from Bilbao to Portsmouth"

    Overall the experience was very pleasant. The ferry journey represented good value for money. The facilities including the 2 berth cabin were excellent. Food served in the restaurant was very good. The staff were professional, helpful , courteous and efficient at all times. The boarding and disembarkation all though time consuming was probably as good as it could be in all the circumstances. I would recommend this ferry without reservation.

  • "Pleasant cruise home to UK"

    We had a pleasant trip on the overnight from Santander to Portsmouth. Beds comfortable, cabin clean. Breakfast in the cafe was a bit disappointing but lunch and dinner in the restaurant were good, if a bit pricey. We were lucky the weather was calm. However there is little to do on this ship so bring your own entertainment.

  • "GREAT WAY TO RETURN HOME"

    Having spent the summer travelling through France and Spain this was a pleasant way to travel home and relax without being "behind the wheel". The crossing was calm and the cabin was more than adequate. Food and drinks on board were not extortionate. We sailed and arrived on time and were off the boat in a matter of minutes. I would consider using this route again although a port in North West Spain would be a bonus rather than 2 in the North east.

  • "Excellant trip"

    This was the first time that my wife and I had experienced a long ferry trip (only been to France before). The check-in was very stress-free, unlike airports! and the journey out was very smooth. Even though we were on what was classed as an "Economy" boat, the cabin was very comfortable and relaxing during the voyage was very easy. The duty free shop was very good value and we could pay in sterling as well. The journey back was on a much larger boat, the Cap Finistere; if you can, opt for this one - real cut above the economy boat on the way out. The food in the restaurant was superb and the service also. Again a smooth trip back and easy boarding and disembarkation. I would recommend this way to travel over an airline, if you have the time.
