At 23.30 this evening we will be sailing aboard the Brittany Ferries ship Etretat from Portsmouth to Le Havre.
We use this crossing regularly as it is a no frills economy service and cheaper than the other routes serviced by Brittany Ferries, The Etretat was built in 2008 and is 186 metres long, has 8 decks , it carries 375 passengers and 200 cars. It has 103 ensuite cabins including 13 pet friendly ones.
Tonight is the first time we will have travelled abroad with Layla so a new experience awaits us, her suitcase is packed with her essentials and her passport with photo is with ours. It has certainly bumped up the price of the crossing with the cabin costing more and having to buy a ticket for her but I’m sure it’s worth the experience.
