About Barfleur

Ship information and on board services

Barfleur returned to the fleet on the 19th March 2013 servicing the Poole to Cherbourg route. Barfleur operates a daily day-time crossing from Poole and a early evening cruise back from Cherbourg.

Launched in 1992, the Barfleur is named after a picturesque, small fishing village in Normandy, only 25 kilometres from Cherbourg. Smaller than the rest of the fleet, she offers en suite cabin accommodation with or without porthole, self service restaurant, bar and reserved seats lounge.



There's nothing better than arriving at your destination fully refreshed for the journey ahead. Whether you choose to sleep away the miles overnight, or enjoy comfort and privacy during a day crossing (when cabins are at a reduced rate) our range of on board accommodation offers the perfect haven.
