This new ferry company (Seafrance reborn as a co-operative) is doing quite well. The ships are clean and happily more people are using them. At the start of the service last year, we were horrified to find we were the only U.K. registered car on both legs of the journey, and that there were only six cars and one lorry on the outward journey.
The restaurant proved more than acceptable. Surprisingly the journey time is quite quick. We left on time and the journey across on a windy day was 1 1/2 hours exactly.
Due to high fuel prices most ferry companies stretch the journey a bit. With fares remaining very good value, let’s hope this new company survives.
In the period between the demise of Seafrance and the start of My Ferry Link fares went up substantially.
They have some good value “Carnet” tickets available now.
