Plan a family holiday...

Getting there: Take the overnight ferry from Portsmouth to Caen on a Friday night, set sail at 10.45pm so there's no need to take Friday off work. Book a cabin so you can all get some sleep before you arrive in France at 6.45am in time for coffee and croissants. You could be in the Loire Valley by lunchtime!

Getting back: Choose an evening cruise on your homeward journey. Board at 4.30pm and take advantage of the onboard shopping and entertainment before having dinner in one of our onboard restaurants. A stroll on deck to watch the sun setting and you'll be back in England at 9.15pm ready for your journey home.
