Just recently used Brittany Ferries Portsnouth > Santander (end Oct) , returning Bilbao > Portsmouth (end Nov). taking the car on the ferry for a tour through Spain & Portugal
We were a wee bit concerned about travelling across the Bay of Biscay at this time of year, but we need not have worried; the weather was very kind to us.
Anyway, the Brittany Ferries was really good. We travelled on the Pont Aven on the way out, returning on the Cap Finistere. The Cap Finistere seems a bit more Freight-oriented and a few years older, but both ships were very comfortable and professionally managed. the cabins were clean and reasonably well appointed.
But the main Big Plus is the catering. The main restaurants on both ships offer excellent quality and value with a silver service style. The cafeteria / bar snacks provision is also very good, but the full service for Breakfast and Dinner really takes some beating. Compliments to the Chefs and waiters.
Because it is a 24 hour crossing, there is plenty of amusement - 2 cinemas showing a good range of films, cabaret in the bars.
All in all, a very enjoyable way to travel, if you are not in a hurry
