The UK's best connected port

Great discoveries start here

Brittany Ferries says Oui to a return to service for ships and routes


“We are delighted to confirm our ships and schedules for the summer season, which will bring renewed optimism and reassurance to staff, customers and port partners,” said Christophe Mathieu CEO Brittany Ferries. “The return of favourites like Bretagne at the end of March, coincide with the arrival of our first LNG-powered vessel Salamanca. She is a symbol of our commitment to our customers, our routes and to a more sustainable future. Three sister ships will join her in the years ahead, as fleet renewal gains pace.”

Schedule highlights for 2022 from Portsmouth include:

Hola! Salamanca (Portsmouth – Bilbao):

Brittany Ferries’ first LNG powered vessel (feature picture above) will sail for the first time with passengers from Portsmouth to Bilbao on 27 March. As well as connecting the UK with Spain, she will run a weekly rotation between Portsmouth and Cherbourg. LNG power promises far lower emissions in ports and while at sea, cutting particulates (PMs) and sulphur (SOx) almost completely and slashing nitrogen dioxide (NOx) by 90 percent. That’s good news for those living and working around ports like Portsmouth.

A Grande Dame returns (Portsmouth – St Malo):


A return to service after nearly 18 months for the grande dame of the Brittany Ferries’ fleet and perhaps most popular ship with Club Voyage (loyalty scheme) members. Bretagne (pictured above) will serve Portsmouth – St Malo, beginning 26 March 2022, as well as delicious meals in her à la carte restaurant.
