Portsmouth Caen Ferry reviews

  • "Lovely boat, reasonably priced food and drink."

    Enjoyed our crossing in both directions. Going out to France was totally without incident, but on the return journey there was a delay due to windy weather and another delay due to Customs control.

  • "Jolly Roger on the high seas."

    I’ve been on Brittany ferries before I have again this trip over to France and I will be in the future, the ship is clean and the crew really helpful. If the boat is late as it was to night it’s because there’s a lot of vehicles to stow and they take care and pride in doing it right! We were kept informed of any delays and the food was worth the wait! Excellent.

  • "Great crossing bad customs clearance!"

    Great crossing both ways. Really well laid out ships with plenty of seating for all. Just such a shame it took an hour to get through customs on the French side going out, only 2 or 3 lanes open!! Coming back Portsmouth/UK customs excellent organisation with several lanes open.
