After travelling with Brittany Ferries for many years, we decided to 'push the boat out' and have a commodore cabin on our outbound journey to Saint Malo. We arrived at Portsmouth with over 90 minutes to spare; we were quickly loaded onto the 'Bretagne' and made our way up to deck 6 to find our cabin. A steward took us... More

My wife and I have travelled on BF every year since they had dog facilities, we use the Cap Finistere outbound and the Pont Aven homeward and have enjoyed every single trip. The crew have been attentive, courteous and happy to help, the food has always been good and you can always find something from the menu. The cabins are... More

I have been using Brittany Ferries, primarily between England and Spain for over 10 years. While the fare is not cheap I don`t think it worth racketing through France because of the cost of running the car and the extreme cost of French motorways. Driving through France on A roads is OK as a "holiday" experience but it can be... More

Always use BF when crossing to France - and have now sailed on most of the fleet. This year we went on a BF package to Northern Spain - so used the Portsmouth/Santander route. Outward we were on the Pont Avon - and on the day before scheduled departure we had an e-mail saying because of technical problems (turned out... More

As a regular BF user for over 20 years, we tried the new Economy service on 22 May 2014. Cabins appeared bigger than on other vessels and were comfortable. Other facilities acceptable, although the food options in the self service were limited as a number of menu items had run out. BUT my car was parked on an open deck... More

As always with this company the crew are great, but the ship has in my opinion lost an opportunity to provide good catering facilities such as those on the Armorique. By putting a beauty salon in the size and scope of the cafeteria is severely limited. The salon was empty most of the trip there and back. I feel slightly... More

Dear ‘andy b’, I’m sorry to hear that you were disappointment with the selection of catering facilities available. We have three food outlets onboard Cap Finistere, the main restaurant offers a dinner menu with 3 starters and 4 main courses with a full table service. Le Petit Marche offers a take away option with sandwiches, salads, soups and snacks and... More

As a ferry service, Brittany Ferries remain perhaps one of the best. A French company, what is distinctive is the French staffing and this consistency does set a certain standard across all departments. We regularly use the UK to Spain services and expect that consistently high service of cleanliness, service and cuisine. HOWEVER, there have been slips which must be... More

Advertised as it's FLAGSHIP, we travelled from Bilbao to Portsmouth on 4th July 2014. Nelson's flagship the Victory had superior accommodation and facilities than this old tub. Going FINISTERE outside 2 berth Club cabin class allowed enough room to swing a kitten , (just) no WiFi or internal phone system working. The staff were only noticeable by there absence and... More

My retired freinds and I have travelled with Britanny Ferries for many years and we all have enormous praise for the service which is always supplied. On this occasion we had decided to take the 24 hour Gourmet Cruise on Le Pont Aven from Plymouth to Roscoff. The ship sails at about 2130 but Early Boarding was allowed from 1900... More

Portsmouth to Bilbao and thankfully the crossing was about as flat as you could hope for, except for lorry and car alarms. They must have very sensitive stomachs. We've used this crossing a few times and have found that the food value-for-money is not that good. So this time we relied upon a picnic hamper that we prepared courtesy of... More
