Portsmouth/St Malo 03/05/2019

Recommended Posts

Set off early from Nottingham and diverted en-route to a NT property (Greys Court), arrived at Gunwharf around 1600hrs.  Had a meal at the Slug and Lettuce (recommended by a friend) - it was awful, wish we had gone to Loch Fyne as usual! 

Checked in at terminal around 1830, and was waved straight through and onto deck 4, which I don't think I've ever been on before.  Steepest stairs in the world up to our cabin (an os 4-berth) no 6718.  Pleased to report it was immaculate and clean. Very obviously attention had been given to air grilles. The pillows seemed to have been replaced with new, larger versions. Evening entertainment was improved, although predictable - duo/magician/solo singer.  Spoilt a little by French school party running around through the public areas in 'packs'.  Had a good nights sleep.

Morning breakfast was good, as usual (commented elsewhere on the bread rolls).

Disembarking was speedy, once we had waited around 15mins for the deck 4 call, and we were straight through French formalities at the port.

So glad we opted to use this route rather than via Plymouth with its current disruptions which could have affected our plans.  Viva Bretagne!

WE return on MSM next Friday night
