Cap Finistère

Operated by Brittany Ferries on the Bilbao Portsmouth & Portsmouth Santander routes

The latest addition to the Brittany Ferries fleet, Cap Finistère feels like a "boutique hotel". It has an intimate, less formal ambience than the their flag ship Pont-Aven, whilst retaining a sense of space and comfort. Having had over $15 million spent on this vessel recently, it now provides an extremely comfortable experience. Onboard there are relaxed dining areas, outdoor decks and cafés, degustation sessions with experts, even make-overs and massage sessions: All with the usual superlative Brittany Ferries service.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

Cap Finistère features numerous cabins, all of which are en-suite and air conditioned. There are also a number of cabins adapted for disabled passengers.

Soap and shower gel are also provided in case you want to freshen up and you'll also find at least 1 plug socket to use or to charge any electrical appliances that you may have.

Onboard Food and Drink

With its intimate atmosphere, Cap Finistère's main restaurant, Le Café du Port has seating which runs either side of the ship. Diners can choose from two to four courses all served at your table and all at great value prices. To accompany your meal, there’s a superb choice of great value French wines - simply ask your waiter or waitress for any suggestions.

Located on the outside top deck, next to the pool, the Blue Marine café offers a selection of self-service snacks, including pizzas, pasta, burgers and salads. Due to its location, this café may be closed during bad weather and during low season.

Located near the main restaurant, Le Petit Marché is ideal for passengers wishing to have a snack rather than a full meal and offers a range of sandwiches, snacks and cakes, plus some healthy options.

Situated at the back of the ship, the main lounge bar ‘Planets Bar’ serves everything from the finest French wines to cocktails. Also on the menu are hot and cold drinks and snacks.

With a mezzanine-style seating area reached by a sweeping staircase, the bar offers a real cruise ship feel with plenty of space to get together with friends, or simply find a quiet spot by the window.

Located outside at the back of the ship on the top deck next to the sun deck, the Cap Finistère's unique Belle View Bar offers passengers a perfect setting to relax and watch the world go by. Due to its location, this bar may be closed during bad weather and during low season.

  • "Passage to Portsmouth"

    Journey to Bilbao on Spanish toll road very simple - not too much traffic and good roads all the way to the port. Cap Finistere was well prepared, well equipped and had a helpful staff on our Bilbao - Portsmouth journey.

  • "Another fab trip to Spain on Brittany ferries "

    We have done the 24 hour crossing from Portsmouth to Santander twice now and it is a great way to start the holiday. We take our motor home and the crossing gives us a 24hr reprieve from driving. The facilities have been excellent each time and service great. The cabins are nice and comfortable and food in the al a Carte restaurant is as good as many top restaurants we have visited. Staff very attentive and A good price for a 3 course meal.

  • "Welcome aboard"

    Overall this ferry is very high standards. Especially the restaurant which serves amazingly good food for something being prepared in a galley! I have used the ferry 5 times but this time didn't book early enough and ended up with a basic inside cabin. Would recommend booking early and trying for a higher standard and outside cabin. The trip can be quite tedious as its 24 hrs on a boat but the crew are very friendly and helpful.

  • "Excellant trip"

    This was the first time that my wife and I had experienced a long ferry trip (only been to France before). The check-in was very stress-free, unlike airports! and the journey out was very smooth. Even though we were on what was classed as an "Economy" boat, the cabin was very comfortable and relaxing during the voyage was very easy. The duty free shop was very good value and we could pay in sterling as well. The journey back was on a much larger boat, the Cap Finistere; if you can, opt for this one - real cut above the economy boat on the way out. The food in the restaurant was superb and the service also. Again a smooth trip back and easy boarding and disembarkation. I would recommend this way to travel over an airline, if you have the time.

  • "Pleasant journey"

    Food was very good, shops adequate, the cabin was comfortable, the shower nice and hot and sleeping was no problem. The only negative was that there was a persistent smell of urine around the toilet - possibly not properly cleaned or maybe it leaked. Cabin 872 I think (number ended in 72, I'm sure, it was on Level 8)

    Found the whole experience from loading to disembarkation on both vessels wholly satisfactory.

The staff were also very efficient and friendly.
