Spanish Minicruise 3 days 2014

Brittany Ferries’ Flagship “Pont Aven”, the 40,000 tonne cruiseferry sails between Plymouth and Santander each Sunday and returns to Portsmouth on Tuesdays where a coach awaits to bring you back to your original joining point. It then sails from Portsmouth on Tuesday afternoon to Santander and we offer a coach service to Portsmouth from Plymouth .The ship returns to Plymouth on Thursday and, we include a coach transfer back to Portsmouth for travellers who joined the ship there. You are not obliged to take the coach and a reduction is made if you make your own way to and from the ports. The two night cruise offers you the opportunity to relax and take it really easy with a little time to go ashore in Spain to shop or merely sample a “tapas” or two with a glass of wine or a “San Miguel”. No meals are included. No modifications to the deal are possible – i.e. car, animal, highest grade cabins . If no date is shown below it means there’s no availability. Parking is available within the docks at both ports. It cannot be pre-booked at Plymouth. No meals are included.



Departures ex-Plymouth


We regret that there are no more Minicruise sailings from Plymouth this year. They will resume in March 2015.


The sailing schedule has been amended for October and the last two Minicruise departures differ from those that have gone before.

The ship leaves Portsmouth at 1100 on Tuesday and sails to Santander arriving at 1200 Spanish time next day. This gives you a goodly amount of time ashore before the return sailing which leaves at 1730 Spanish time. The ship docks at Portsmouth on Thursday at 1700.

From November until March the Minicruise is operated by Brittany Ferries themselves to whom all questions about the operation should be addressed after October 28th.
