Take your time, enjoy the ride
Brittany Ferries sail direct to Bilbao and Santander on the North coast of Spain, with crossings for a really easy journey all the way. The sights can be rather more interesting too - you'll enjoy exhilarating sea views and fresh air as you relax and stroll on the deck.
Before laying your head to rest for the night, take advantage of the onboard entertainment, restaurants and a spot of shopping while the kids are safely playing in the play area. All cabins are en-suite, and range from Commodore Class cabins to inside cabins, suiting varying budgets. Once you have docked, you're free to embark on your journey by car refreshed.
If you're restricted to a tighter budget, there is also the option of a no-frills 'économie' sailing. The on-board services and facilities are limited compared to the cruise ferries, however you can still enjoy a comfortable experience, with en-suite bedrooms, self-service restaurant, small bar and seating area.
