About Normandie

Ship information and on board services

Following the success of the Bretagne, Brittany Ferries commissioned the Normandie in 1991 for the route between Portsmouth and Caen.

Named after the French region of the same name, it is decorated in traditional Norman style and colours, and features first-rate on-board facilities, including excellent dining, shopping and live entertainment.

Please note that on busier sailings a small number of vehicles may be parked in an open area on deck.
