  • "Early Autumn Break!"

    Was pleasantly surprised with our recent ferry trip to Cherbourg. Having used cross channel ferries over the years had not realised that considerable improvements have since been made to the vessels etc. Staff were most helpful and actually seemed to enjoy their work. Overall an enjoyable experience to the start of our holiday!
