Specifically designed and built for Brittany Ferries, the Armorique was introduced to their fleet in 2009. Carrying up to 1,500 passengers and 470 cars, the ship follows a modern design with décor that beautifully captures the lights, colours and space of the Brittany region and its maritime heritage. There's plenty of space to move around on board (both inside and on deck) with an open plan feel, and lots of areas to relax, including a quiet zone.
Armorique offers passengers a choice of 248 cabins - all of which are en-suite and air conditioned as well over 300 reclining seats spread throughout the ship. There are also a number of cabins adapted for disabled passengers.
Armorique features a self-service restaurant offering a fantastic choice of foods from around the world, as well as French favourites such as mouth-watering minute steaks, cooked to your liking on the spot! There's also a salad buffet, great choice of desserts, and drinks, including wines and beers to accompany your meal. This all takes place in a very light and spacious dining area with a choice of tables to suit your group size as well as panoramic views. The children's soft play area is also situated within this area, so is a great place for families.
Serving sandwiches, cakes, pastries and hot and cold drinks, Le Café, not only offers a delicious choice of snacks, it's also a great place to relax and enjoy time with your fellow passengers in a relaxed atmosphere with a number of flat screen televisions and plenty of space and seating.
Just a long from the restaurant area, the main lounge bar continues Armorique's open plan feel offering further seating as well as a quiet zone. Serving everything from the finest French wines to cocktails as well as a choice of cold and hot drinks, this light and airy area is ideal for relaxing over a drink and enjoying the terrific views. There are also a number of flat screen televisions showing big sports matches and news updates.
Perfect for gifts, souvenirs, or just a treat for yourself, Armorique 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.
There are 2 cinemas onboard where you can catch some of the latest films. 'Wi-Fi time' can be purchased from the information desk. Armorique features plenty of deck space so you can stretch your legs and and enjoy a calm spot to relax, while enjoying the sea air and incredible views, particularly when entering or leaving the port. There is also a cash machine dispensing euros, a baggage room and baby changing rooms.
Armorique is a very child friendly ship. Young children can enjoy fun and games in the playroom and during peak season the ship features a special entertainment programme and children can enjoy everything from games to treasure hunts. There is also a games room which features the latest video games and air hockey table which will keep teenagers entertained throughout the trip.

100% of our customers recommended this ship
We travelled from Poole to Cherbourg with our motor home, staying on the Port overnight. The boarding was easy and well managed and it was reassuring to see the security checks being carried out. Food on board was good and a reasonable price. The return from To Scott to Plymouth was equally as good with the French police thoroughly checking all vehicles. The crossing was really comfortable and again the food was good. Direct Ferries made the booking easy and were cheaper than booking direct with Brittany ferries.

"Plymouth Roscoff on Britany Ferries"
Fantastic ship and felt I was on a cruise rather than a crossing. I have used Brittany ferries on many occasion and really like the boats; well maintained, comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend Brittany ferries as their service is always above expectations.

"Plymouth - Roscoff"
An excellent journey at a good price. Our cabin was very comfortable, the ferry had excellent facilities including a swimming pool!... unfortunately this was out of use as we had an overnight sailing. The food was overpriced so we didn't have a meal. Would definitely use this company again.

I was fortunate enough to travel on the Port Aven recently and found the whole experience an absolute treat. The weather was pretty foul approaching England but the Port Aven is a big ferry and took it in her stride. I have often wondered, considering how short the turnaround time is, how the staff aboard manage to clean up and make it look like the ship has been washed down from top to bottom, all in an hour or less! The food was excellent quality and variety. I dined on great food and can recommend the restaurants to anyone needing replenishment. Again, they manage to knock out a fabulous meal with so little time, it's truly impressive. I can honestly recommend travel on this ferry. It was a superb crossing in all respects, even though the channel was pretty rough with wave splash covering the windows on the 9th level. Impressive.

Very clean ship. Everything satisfactory, except the "Free WiFi" ! Was unable to get online with the code prvided despite many , many attempts. And then it seems the plug is pulled as soon as the ship leaves port.

"Return Trip from Plymouth to Roscoff"
Excellent service. Only negative comment I would make is that after paying for a lounge seat we found that people were just sitting in these lounges free of charge and even found people in our seats. Slight delay in getting off @ Roscoff.

"Two Good Crossings "
We enjoyed our day crossings on the Amorique even though the crossings were quite busy. There was plenty of room & the seating was comfortable. The food in the self service restaurant on our return was disappointing but the pizzas & pastries in the lounge at the stern on deck 6 on our outward journey were good. We will travel on this service again.
