Although still being trapped in the uncertainty linked to Brexit, Brittany Ferries has announced a €8 millions profit for its 2018 financial year (which goes from Octobre 2017 to September 2018).
The Department for Transports has awarded a £46,6 millions contract to Brittany Ferries to operate 19 further weekly crossings from 29th March from Plymouth, Poole and Portsmouth in case of a without-deal Brexit.
Brittany Ferries has just unveiled the first of its two-commissioned E-Flexer class RoPax ferries will be named Galicia and Salamanca.
Brittany Ferries unveils today it has reached an agreement with Stena Line AB for the commission of a second E-Flexer class vessel, with the first (ordered a few months ago) to be delivered for Summer 2021, a year later than initially planed.

Brittany Ferries’ work horse Normandie began service back in May 1992, on the Ouistreham - Portsmouth for which she has been built. It mean she has kept sailing on this route for 25 years, up to three times a day with the reliability of a Swiss clock. Built to accommodate the growing numbers of passengers traveling to Normandy, she still looks very modern, despite her age.
Willing to make something relaxing throughout a mid-August week end, we decided to make a cruise with Brittany Ferries. That was an occasion to sail aboard a workhorse we haven’t given the attention she deserves the last time we sailed on her five years ago.

In a previous travel report, I wrote I was unlikely to sail abord Bretagne soon. However, I soon really missed my favourite ship on the British Channel. Therefore, our YouTube-channel manager and I wanted to sail aboard her to Portsmouth once again (it is my eigth crossings aboard), in order to propose you a new report of our favourite. Besides, we also decided to spend a few days in Portsmouth, to which we will dedicate a further report.
