  • "Fifty-fifty"

    I travelled from France to Portsmouth on the Baie de Seine, which is a good improvement on past ferries. The cabins are well-designed for convenient space, the shop and restaurant areas look inviting and well-presented. Boarding and disembarking well handled. I came back on the Etretat, an older boat (I think) where the layout and appearance are showing their age. I don't understand why you have to queue up for a cabin entry code. I discovered the next morning that the upper bunk (cabin 6A25) above me was insecurely fastened, and could have given me a mighty crack on the head! Staff on both boats were welcoming and polite.

  • "SurprisingY good"

    We travelled from Le Havre to Portsmouth. The loading was quick and simple, our car was placed on a sun deck! The reclining seats were good and all food and drink was reasonably priced. The food was really quite decent and cheap. The number of lorry drivers was high and normal passengers low. It’s a medium to small sized boat. But as good as any.

  • "Trip to France"

    The outward trip was very good, the ship Baie de Seine was better for disembarkation than the Etretat which was the ship on the return journey. that part took too long. But overall standards are very good for the "Economie " ships

  • "A really enjoyable ferry trip"

    I really enjoyed this trip, the staff were very friendly and helpfull. The ferry was on time , the turnaround time when it docked from Portsmouth was really speedy. The loading time for the trip to Portsmouth was very quick. The ship was spotlessly clean I really recommend this ferry service, all in all a very relaxing trip for me.

  • "Professional and well run"

    I slept well in the lounge and woke refreshed. A good journey back to France. I ate breakfast in the lounge and got halfway through when I was asked if I would mind moving to the next lounge by a very nice member of staff. I was happy to do so. On the way out the reason became very apparent. An elderly couple were sitting a few rows behind me and the man had obviously passed away in the night. His wife was very upset. Paramedics were in attendance as well as staff. It was handled incredibly well by the staff and paramedics, they could not have been more helpful and kind.

  • "Brittany Ferries Economy service"

    We choose the economy service as we have never experienced any problems whatsoever in all of journeys to and from France. The cost of the crossing enables us to use the service frequently and any possible future passengers should not shy away from this service as they would be pleasantly surprised. Thankyou to all the hard working staff who ensure that the customer feels welcome.

  • "Wait at dock"

    We docked at 9.30 PM at Portsmouth on 2 Sept. But I only left the docks at 11.05 PM after unloading the ferry and passport control. This makes think the channel tunnel maybe quicker. Coming back you just want to drive off and leave.

    My husband and I travelled with our motorhome on the ferry. It was very efficient loading and we left the port on time. The ferry was very clean and welcoming. We used the cinema to while away a few hours which was a bonus. There were plenty of seats to relax in. We had a meal which was tasty and reasonably priced. all in all a successful journey. Thank you.
