Armorique

Operated by Brittany Ferries on the Plymouth Roscoff route

Specifically designed and built for Brittany Ferries, the Armorique was introduced to their fleet in 2009. Carrying up to 1,500 passengers and 470 cars, the ship follows a modern design with décor that beautifully captures the lights, colors and space of the Brittany region and its maritime heritage. There's plenty of space to move around on board (both inside and on deck) with an open plan feel, and lots of areas to relax, including a quiet zone.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

Armorique offers passengers a choice of 248 cabins - all of which are en-suite and air conditioned as well over 300 reclining seats spread throughout the ship. There are also a number of cabins adapted for disabled passengers.

Onboard Food and Drink

Armorique features a self-service restaurant offering a fantastic choice of foods from around the world, as well as French favourites such as mouth-watering minute steaks, cooked to your liking on the spot! There's also a salad buffet, great choice of desserts, and drinks, including wines and beers to accompany your meal. This all takes place in a very light and spacious dining area with a choice of tables to suit your group size as well as panoramic views. The children's soft play area is also situated within this area, so is a great place for families.

Serving sandwiches, cakes, pastries and hot and cold drinks, Le Café, not only offers a delicious choice of snacks, it's also a great place to relax and enjoy time with your fellow passengers in a relaxed atmosphere with a number of flat screen televisions and plenty of space and seating.

Just a long from the restaurant area, the main lounge bar continues Armorique's open plan feel offering further seating as well as a quiet zone. Serving everything from the finest French wines to cocktails as well as a choice of cold and hot drinks, this light and airy area is ideal for relaxing over a drink and enjoying the terrific views. There are also a number of flat screen televisions showing big sports matches and news updates.

Onboard Shopping

Perfect for gifts, souvenirs, or just a treat for yourself, Armorique boutiques offer a fine range of spirits, wine, tobacco, perfumes and cosmetics, leather goods, confectionery, toys, fashion, decoration, souvenirs, newspapers, games, cameras, sunglasses, jewellery and much more! All are at great prices, and certainly worth a browse.

Purchases made on board may be paid for in Euros or Sterling. Payment can be made in cash, by credit or debit card. Prices are shown in both currencies and you can combine different payment methods.

Additional Onboard Facilities

There are 2 cinemas onboard where you can catch some of the latest films. 'Wi-Fi time' can be purchased from the information desk. Armorique features plenty of deck space so you can stretch your legs and and enjoy a calm spot to relax, while enjoying the sea air and incredible views, particularly when entering or leaving the port. There is also a cash machine dispensing euros, a baggage room and baby changing rooms.

  • "Roscoff to Plymouth"

    Overall a good experience, ferry departure was changed to an earlier to an earlier time , but the communication was sent with plenty of time to make adjustments. Staff were friendly and the ship was spotlessly clean, we ate on the ferry and the was plenty of choices and the food was good. Good entertainment for younger kids onboard, duty free was well stocked. loads of room and the channel was like a mill pond. Overall a good experience

    I really wasn't sure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised with all the facilities and great customer service on the ship. There was plenty of entertainment for the kids including free face painting and great magic shows. Didn't try the food but it all looked fantastic and very reasonable prices. would be very happy to travel with Brittany Ferries again.

  • "Plymouth-Roscoff-Plymouth"

    We stayed in a cabin on the way out on the overnight 22:00 - 08:00 (both times local) and this was the best way to travel - cabin was clean with en suite and the beds very comfortable. Breakfast was good - could have done with some non-dairy options. A similarly pleasant experience was had on the return journey, but this time with plenty of seating (mid-afternoon crossing) and good food in the restaurant (more vegetarian options could be made available). All-in-all, a very civilised way to travel and an enjoyable journey for us both. Thank you.

  • "Taking a dog on the ferry"

    The staff in the Information desk were very helpful in organising a half way visit to our car to check on our dog - who was asleep and fine. They were kind and reassuring . I was however concerned at the car alarms going off near dogs as their hearing is so sensitive. Could the information about how to avoid car alarms going off be given more clearly, including in a written format/poster or leaflet? When we were parking our car the loudspeaker system could not be heard clearly as there was so much unavoidable noise and clanking from the cars being directed in. Maybe information could be given when booking so that car drivers can look into how to switch of their particular car alarm system.

  • "Generally good "

    Great facilities, especially appreciated everything that was available to occupy little kids. The cabin was spacious and had a shower in the bathroom, an unexpected benefit. However we would have appreciated knowing in advance that we would have to vacate cabin 30 minutes before arrival, as it was very tricky to get organised with two under-3s and we felt a bit harassed by staff. Perhaps it was written somewhere but we missed it, perhaps it should be more obvious. The other thing was that it was not obvious when we could return to the car, as we missed announcements (due to above) and the door to call level was open, resulting in marital rows as husband thought if door was open we could go. I was right, of course ;-)

  • "Excellent Service to/from Roscoff"

    Extremely enjoyable and hassle free trip to Rosciff courtesy of Brittany Ferries. Arriving about 15 minutes ahead of the scheduled check in time on both occasions, we were treated to easy and straight forward embarkation on to the Armorique and were soon relaxing in the spacious lounges. The vessel was extremely clean and the staff were very friendly, smartly dressed and very attentive. Would definitely recommend this service to anyone undecided about how to get to western France.

  • "Great value"

    We travelled from Poole to Cherbourg with our motor home, staying on the Port overnight. The boarding was easy and well managed and it was reassuring to see the security checks being carried out. Food on board was good and a reasonable price. The return from To Scott to Plymouth was equally as good with the French police thoroughly checking all vehicles. The crossing was really comfortable and again the food was good. Direct Ferries made the booking easy and were cheaper than booking direct with Brittany ferries.

  • "Excellent experience"

    I was fortunate enough to travel on the Port Aven recently and found the whole experience an absolute treat. The weather was pretty foul approaching England but the Port Aven is a big ferry and took it in her stride. I have often wondered, considering how short the turnaround time is, how the staff aboard manage to clean up and make it look like the ship has been washed down from top to bottom, all in an hour or less! The food was excellent quality and variety. I dined on great food and can recommend the restaurants to anyone needing replenishment. Again, they manage to knock out a fabulous meal with so little time, it's truly impressive. I can honestly recommend travel on this ferry. It was a superb crossing in all respects, even though the channel was pretty rough with wave splash covering the windows on the 9th level. Impressive.
