Cruise to Bilbao with Brittany Ferries

The cruise ship experience

A group of friends drinking at the bar on Cap Finistère

Cruise in comfort and style from Portsmouth to Bilbao with time to relax and enjoy the restaurants, accommodation and onboard facilities for a superior crossing to Spain. Cap Finistère has been selected for this route due to the informal luxury its onboard experience offers. Your journey is more than transportation, it's a mini cruise that provides a very special start and end your holiday.

Taking a ferry to Spain is so different to travelling by aeroplane. You'll enjoy spacious accommodation instead of cramped conditions, travel conveniently with your car instead of waiting in uncomfortable airports carrying heavy luggage and have your choice of three onboard restaurants instead of bland regulation airline food.

Fine dining & restaurant options

Choose from three restaurants onboard, the 'Restaurant du Port' a quality Brasserie, 'Le Petit Marche', a food market offering healthy meals and snacks and 'Le Cafe Salad Bar' serving pizza, pasta and burgers. There are also two well stocked bars offering a full range of beverages and snacks.

Activities & recreation

The choice of onboard activities is exceptional - there is a movie lounge showing the latest releases, Wi-Fi internet access, a heated outdoor swimming pool, and a range of shops, lounges and sun decks to explore. There is lots to do but also plenty of quiet places to relax in comfort and with a coffee and a magazine.

Children's entertainment

Children's entertainments include a play area, swimming pool, cinema and child friendly restaurants so this is one journey everyone will enjoy! Use your cabin throughout the journey as a quiet space for younger children to rest or nap with cots available on request. There are baby-changing facilities conveniently situated throughout the ferry.

Pet friendly facilities

Dogs are welcome on board and in specially designated cabins. There is a dedicated dog exercise area on deck to ensure your pet has a comfortable, safe journey.

Accommodation & privacy

A range of luxury cabins are on offer with two berth cabins with double beds, twin beds or bunk beds and 4 berth options to suit families. Disabled access, cots and pet friendly cabins are available and all cabins are en-suite with air conditioning for your comfort.
