Brittany Ferries is now offering short cruises from Portsmouth to Spain and back on board its latest cruise ferry, Cap Finistère. Starting from £75 per person, these breaks include two nights at sea in a comfortable en suite cabin, as well as a short visit to Santander – the elegant Capital of Cantabria.
Cap Finistère has all the comfort and character of a boutique hotel, with elegant bars and lounges offering a range of entertainment and fine French dining, as well as views over the passing seascapes. Passengers can also enjoy the sea air on the spacious lido deck – which has its own café-bar and swimming pool.
The voyage from Portsmouth to Spain passes right through the Bay of Biscay, one of the best places in the world for catching a glimpse of whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. Many crossings will be accompanied by wildlife officers from the marine conservation charity, ORCA to help passengers spot these astonishing animals.
On arrival in Santander there’s just enough time to walk around the City’s boulevards, plazas and parks, stop for a drink and perhaps a spot of shopping before returning to the ship for the overnight cruise home.
Cap Finistère leaves Portsmouth at 11.15 on Tuesday and Friday mornings and arrives back on Thursdays and Sundays at 14.15. For further information visit www.brittanyferries.com/offers and to book call 0871 244 0744.
