Bretagne

Operated by Brittany Ferries on the Plymouth St Malo & Portsmouth St Malo routes

Bretagne has first-rate onboard facilities, including excellent dining, shopping and live entertainment, and can accommodate over 2000 passengers, almost half of them in cabin accommodation. It is named after the French region Brittany, and is decorated in traditional Breton style and colours.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

There's a wide choice of 2, 3 and 4 berth cabins ranging from bunk style beds to commodore class luxury. All of the Bretagne cabins are ensuite, air conditioned and have fresh linen and towels. Soap and shower gel are also provided in case you want to freshen up and you'll also find at least 1 plug socket to use or to charge any electrical appliances that you may have.

Reclining seats provide a great value option for overnight crossings and additional comfort to your day sailing. These lounges are ideal for groups or large parties as well as for individual customers wishing to stretch out and relax.

Onboard Food and Drink

The Bretagne main a la carte restaurant ‘Les Abers’ offers seating for smaller and larger groups. You'll enjoy elegant surroundings and panoramic views - as well as an open kitchen where you can see first-class chefs in action.

La Baule is the Bretagne's self-service restaurant. La Baule offers a fantastic choice of foods from around the world, as well as French favourites such as our minute steaks, a salad buffet, great choice of desserts, and drinks, including wines and beers to accompany your meal.

Café - La Gerbe de Locronan serves sandwiches, cakes, pastries and hot and cold drinks. The children's soft play area is also situated within this area, so is a great place for families.

The Bretagne's main lounge bar, Gwenn Ha Du serves everything from the finest French wines to cocktails. Also on the menu are hot and cold drinks and snacks. The bar also offers some tiered seating, ensuring a great view of the large stage area which regularly plays host to great cabaret acts, from singers to magicians! There are also a number of flat screen televisions showing big sports matches and news updates.

Located at the entrance of the main restaurant, the Bretagne's piano bar, Yacht Club offers a superb setting for an aperitif - or a great atmosphere in which to simply relax as you sip cocktails and enjoy live music played on a grand piano.

Onboard Shopping

Perfect for gifts, souvenirs, or just a treat for yourself, Bretagne boutiques offer a fine range of spirits, wine, tobacco, perfumes and cosmetics, leather goods, confectionery, toys, fashion, decoration, souvenirs, newspapers, games, cameras, sunglasses, jewellery and much more! All are at great prices, and certainly worth a browse.

Purchases made on board may be paid for in Euros or Sterling. Payment can be made in cash, by credit or debit card. Prices are shown in both currencies and you can combine different payment methods.

Additional Onboard Facilities

There are 2 cinemas onboard where you can catch some of the latest films. 'Wi-Fi time' can be purchased from the information desk.

  • "overnight Portsmouth - St Malo and return"

    V.good, smooth crossing. Found the on board instructions referenc e cabin directions a bit confusing however lots of helpful staff. Unable to book rwo-birth cabin without bunks this we found tricky for one 79 and one 75 year old, but survived the top bunk! Comfortable. Excellent meal in restuarant - booked out on return trip so we tried self service- also excellent and a lot cheaper. Embarking and disembarking totally controlled and excellent with no delays.

  • "enjoyable trip"

    Brittany Ferries overnight trip from Portsmouth to St Malo is a very easy way to travel. We never felt rushed, the staff were polite, friendly and helpful, we had time for a great self service meal and a film in the cinema, before getting a good nights sleep in the cosy but comfy cabin. We left feeling refreshed and fit for the 8 hour drive ahead.

  • "holiday visit to France"

    Travelled with my wife, daughter and her boyfriend. Ferry was on time and we had a good crossing. Daughter and boyfriend enjoyed some but not all of the caberet. Staff very friendly and helpful. On disembarkation we noticed one of the crew going down the isle of cars with a jump starter. Little did my wife and I know that it was for my daughters boyfriends car. He held things up a little but all came good in the end. Had a good holiday and returned on the same ferry. I would recommend this crossing to everyone travelling to Brittany. Very relaxing andcomfortable.

  • "Miam!!!"

    We use ferry's between France and England quite a lot .. maybe 4 to 6 times a year ... and this journey is the best. Brittany provide a really pleasurable and comfortable journey, and most importantly, have excellent catering services. A high point of our journey was to relax and enjoy the buffet with a bottle of Gewurtztraminer. All staff from arrival, deck/parking and on passenger levels and restaurants were very pleasant and welcoming. We will definitely be using the ferry again.

  • "Short break"

    Decided on the spur of the moment to take up the special offer fare. It was certainly considerably cheaper. We have used this crossing several times before and it is ok. Probably because we're getting older we think we will go for a cabin next time rather than the reclining seats, which are fine coming back during the day.

    Everything was 'plain sailing' and all went to plan without any problems. Fast and efficient service at an affordable price. I can definitely recommend this crossing as you arrive early next morning already further into France therefore less distance to travel when heading south.

  • "St Malo - Portsmouth"

    Having crossed two weeks earlier on the fast crossing between Portsmouth & Cherbourg we'd favoured the ease of staying in St Malo & leaving on the 10:30 morning ferry. We'd not given it much more thought than that, however we were both pleasantly surprised by how much we & more so the kids enjoyed it. We did have very calm seas but more so the boat crew, facilities were excellent & the kids loved the panto. All in all a very easy & surprisingly relaxing finish to the end of the holiday.

  • "good but not good value for money"

    The staff were very competent and the ship was spacious and certainly not overcrowded. The service was very good in the restaurant and although the food looked wonderful, it was extremely limited for vegetarians. We ate a plate of ratatouille, which was very good, but there was no choice for those of us who don't eat meat or fish. I felt that the trip was extremely overpriced and learned from others that they had paid much less for the same journey.
