    We were fortunate to have perfect weather for the crossing. This resulted in a smooth crossing and everything was on time. The facilities on board were very good. The only downside was that it took quite long to disembark as foot passengers.

  • "Condor Ferries."

    For the crossing, Portsmouth to St. Helier, and return. Condor were extremely helpful. Direct Ferries from whom the tickets were purchased - less helpful with unobtainable telephone numbers with which to get up to date information on sailing times which could have been affected by sea and weather conditions at that time.

  • "One week holiday in Jersey"

    Condor Ferries are clean and efficient. Directions to load the cars were easy and straight forward to follow. The Club Class lounge was brilliant. Endless tea, coffee and biscuits while the journey home through the night was restful in the cabin which gave us a good night's sleep along with a hearty breakfast in the morning. Will definitely recommend and travel again with Condor.

    The cabin was comfortable. The ship has no forward views- you need to pay a premium for either seating or a cabin with this, but other than that the staff were really friendly and helpful and the lounge areas were airy and comfortable.

  • "Family trip"

    Our family with young children really enjoyed our ferry trip, we booked a cabin both ways and were very glad we did, it meant we had a private room as a base, to watch dvds, play games and read whilst relaxing on the beds. It was worth getting the deluxe cabin with a window facing the front, we had a great view of the islands. Our children enjoyed going outside on deck to see the naval ships in Portsmouth and the islands. Instead of being a difficult 12 hour journey with young children they enjoyed the adventure. Definitely recommend a cabin both for day and night. Only downside was the cafe was expensive so take snacks and drinks.

  • "Was a suprise "

    Enjoyed the return trip to Jersey from Portsmouth. Booked a cabin on the return journey. We were allocated cabin 801. We entered the cabin to be met by towels on the beds with a little bag of shower things . Gel, shower cap, soap etc. This was as we found quite a surprise when we couldn't find the shower. We hunted high and low to find it in the bathroom. There isn't one folks. I even took a video of the bathroom with the warning signs on the door warning you to be careful when showering. We were not told this cabin did not have a shower, and would not have booked it if we had known in advance. So to be clear CABIN 801 DOES NOT HAVE A SHOWER. Other than that the staff were friendly and professional. the food was OK. The ship was delayed 1 Hr on the return leg of our trip but we were informed and we arrived in Portsmouth on time anyway

  • "Clipper"

    Our journey to and from Jersey on the Condor Clipper was smooth and uneventful. Apart from not sleeping much on our return night journey, the overall experience was pleasant enough. Facilities on board are what you would expect and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The ship is clean and tidy with plenty of space. The only problem I can see is the pricing of the cabins which are available in both directions. The prices for these are vastly different depending on the the time of day which is somewhat limiting for those on a budget.

  • "Pleasant start to our holiday"

    We decided to take the ferry to Guernsey as we regarded a boat trip would be an important part of our holiday. We were not disappointed. Booking procedure, checking in and boarding as foot passengers all went smoothly. The ferry was clean and comfortable and unexpectedly Uncrowded. After quiet refreshments in the bar, and watching the English coastline gradually slipping away into the distance, we ventured out on deck. We were lucky to be travelling through extremely smooth waters. There was a little fog mid channel, but once this cleared we enjoyed sunning ourselves on deck and enjoying the sea views, with occasional passing ships. All too soon, the small islands appeared and we disembarked at Guernsey harbour in anticipation of the rest of our week's holiday. We had been able to store our cases securely whilst on board, pick up was easy on arrival and we were transported with our luggage by car directly from the inside of the ferry to the harbour. The staff on board had been friendly and helpful. We cannot comment on catering facilities on board as we took picnic food with us and enjoyed it on deck. Our only slight problem was that on arrival through customs, we emerged from the building to find no taxis at all and a longish walk with our cases from the end of the pier to find a taxi to take us to our hotel. If we had known this we could have arranged to book a taxi in advance.
