Hola Galicia – now sailing from Portsmouth to Santander

Now, those travelling from Portsmouth to Santander can experience our brand-new ship, Galicia.

With a new Spanish inspired style on board – a first for Brittany Ferries – Galicia looks great, is full of innovative modern design and facilities and promises sumptuous comfort, whilst remaining true to our heritage and values.

Here you can discover not only some of her features and highlights, but some of the stories behind her creation.

News flash - coming 2022: Following in Galicia’s wake, the second of our three new ships, Salamanca, launched on 6 January 2021 with work commencing for her introduction to the fleet early next year. Like her sister ship, from décor to dining, Salamanca will showcase some of the very best of Spain, inspired by her vibrant city namesake. But Salamanca’s greatest difference is her efficiency and green credentials, as she becomes the first Brittany Ferries ship to be powered by cleaner LNG.

Technically, Galicia is a more efficient ship

Smoother, quieter, less vibration and fewer emissions. Sailing to Spain on Galicia will be a pleasurable experience for all and it’s what goes on beneath decks that will make it all happen.


A fusion of Spanish, French and international flavours, Galicia will be serving up a fresh dining experience everyone can enjoy with one breakfast and dinner included in the ticket price.
