Brittany Seas Ships was created by French ferries enthusiasts Antoine H. and Loïc P. under the name Transports Marins Bretons.

It was initially only a Facebook Page dedicated to the ferry companies that serves Brittany, and therefore it is dedicated to Brittany Ferries, Condor Ferries and Irish Ferries. It was then planned to create a website in French and eventually an English Edition which was released on 31st August 2016. When the Translation Work began, it has been decided to give another name to the English Edition, and here comes the name Brittany Seas Ships.

An out-of-common cruise aboard Normandie

Normandie leaving Portsmouth's harbour, en route to Ouistreham

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.

A travel report (text and pictures) by Antoine and Benjamin.
