As Club members of Brittany Ferries we are used to both the positives and negatives of travelling on the various ships of the fleet. In fact, I still happily remember travelling to and from Caen in its first year of operation there and watching hundreds of intrigued holidaymakers waving us off from the French quayside. Timings of ferries work perfectly... More

Once again Brittany Ferries excelled themselves. We sailed overnight on Monday 15th September 14, retuning overnight Tuesday 16th September 14. The whole trip was absolutely delightful. Dinner on Bretagne and then next day an excellent luncheon in Cancale we experienced a premier class restaurant with outstanding food and service. We thoroughly enjoyed travelling with Brittany Ferries.

Yet another crossing with Brittany Ferries with our daughter and 8 year old grandson as well as our large Yorkshire Terrier. We had a pet friendly cabin with 4 bunks - two up -two down, as well as the usual small shower room which is more than adequate. We had a two night crossing with the ferry stopping in Roscoff....

Dear “Val082” I am very pleased to read that you enjoyed your crossing and that the weather was good and the sea was smooth. The pet exercise area is, as you mention, subject to regular hosing and cleaning. I would be very interested to hear your comments regarding the painted floor, if you could please contact me at: james.massey@brittanyferries.com I... More

Overall the service provided by Brittany Ferries is good and would be a lot higher except for two things. The staff are lackadaisical and on my last trip, rude about customers in my hearing. They seem to think that all the English cannot speak French. On two occasions I overheard members of staff talking about and then laughing at some... More

Dear '11jco', Thank you for posting your comments. We appreciate the feedback. I am sorry to hear that you overheard staff and felt that their conduct was unprofessional. Clearly this is not what we expect from our staff and I apologise. We spend a huge amount of time, effort and money on training so this was disappointing to read. We... More

We did Portsmouth to Caen. What we really liked was that the ferry company were very reasonable in terms of the prices for on-board services. £4 or so for a lovely pizza, 60p for chocolate from a vending machine. It was nice to feel that they weren't doing the usual British motorway service thing of getting every penny they could... More

The ships and staff are exceptional however the company lets their staff down with their booking procedure on reserved seating. My wife and I sail with Brittany three or four times a year and we are constantly being split up in our reserved seating by their computer system, We have had aisles between us twice and on one occasion we...

Dear ‘Mike D’, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with the location of your reserved seats. Our reserved seat numbers are usually allocated automatically in numerical order 24 hours before your sailing. Unfortunately the system is unable to take into account aisles or rows. However, if you wish we can pre –book seats... More

My Wife and I really enjoyed the Ferry. The food available was quite good, the Duty Free shopping is also nice. The only thing we didn't enjoy was trying to sleep on the overnight ferry without getting a cabin!! We thought we would save a little money by sleeping in the free recliners the ferry offers. Unfortunately they did not... More

The whole experience of travelling with Brittany Ferries was a pleasant experience. After a long drive from Manchester to Portsmouth it was very nice to relax on board and unwind on the crossing to St. Malo. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
