Sail, relax and discover

Galicia is our first newly built ship for over a decade. And whilst she’s based on our decades of experience, she’ll also be the first ship in our fleet to fully embody our renewed brand, and our new promises to you, our passengers.

On board you’ll find fresh new concepts, contemporary design, and an immersive and fun take on sea travel, with new discoveries to make as you sail to your destination.

Combining our know-how with art, design and the very latest technology, Galicia tells many stories. From our own heritage and culture, to that of the destinations we serve, she’ll also reveal our love for the ocean and explain what we’re doing to protect and improve the seas we sail. 

We look forward to you joining us for the journey...


An exciting first for Brittany Ferries, Galicia will offer a Video On Demand service, free of charge. 

With TVs in all cabins, and access to the service via all personal devices throughout the ship, everyone on board can enjoy a choice of 160 movies and 189 hours of TV – including box sets, one-offs and documentaries – as well as live news channels. All regularly updated.

There will also be a Brittany Ferries channel showing latest onboard service information, as well as shopping highlights, offers and destination guides.

Celebrating the sea and mapping your journey to and from Santander on board Galicia, the Sea Travel Exhibition is one of two immersive rooms on board. And another Brittany Ferries first!

From your departure and arrival ports and landmarks along the way, to discovering the marine life of the Bay of Biscay – a hotspot for whales and dolphins – here, you’ll learn about Brittany Ferries, our destinations, our relationship with the sea, our environmental partners and more.

It’s a great experience for all passengers, with TV a display, interactive tablets and an interactive kiosk featuring sea themed games.


Continuing our long-held tradition of art on board, The House of Las Meninas, is an immersive experience, celebrating one of Spain’s most famous and enigmatic paintings.

Created by Diego Velázquez in 1656, Las Meninas, or ‘The Ladies-in-waiting' has been captivating the world for over three centuries, with countless philosophers and critics debating, and other artists, including Picasso, inspired by the painting’s composition and how it plays with perspective, light and illusion.

From written and interactive analysis to games and a (digital) meeting with Velázquez himself, whether you’re an art-lover or not, this room is sure to ignite your interest. 

It is also home to one of two original life-size sculptures on board, La Menina Rockera, created by Miguel Angel Craviotto for a unique outdoor exhibition, ‘Meninas Madrid Gallery’.

Kids will have plenty to enjoy and discover whilst on board. Inside, Deck’s 7 and 8 host interactive play areas, with fun play structures, games and interactive screens. There’s something to learn too, with each focussing on the sea and our destinations.

On Deck 8, discover some fun interactive screens.

But, it’s not all about technology.
