We used this route for the first time with our motorbikes. The staff went out of their way to make sure the bikes were safe and not damaged on the crossing. The restaurant on board was superb. Good prices and excellent food.

Superior Ferry service from Brittany Ferries. New ships, spacious communal areas, clean & colourful (not too many on the disco dance floor on late November Monday night, however !) lovely comfy cabin for the overnight crossing left us well rested for the onward leg.
