Disabled and reduced mobility passengers travelling on our économie ships

Travelling onboard Etretat

General information

Passengers travelling in a wheelchair in a standard car will be parked on Deck 5 providing easy access to the ship and wheelchair accessible cabins.  Larger vehicles will be parked on Deck 3 with priority for access to the small lift granted to passengers with impaired mobility.  Access to the passenger areas of the ship via the lift will involve a level 110m walkway through the outdoor car deck on Deck 5. Please note that parking on deck 5 is on an open deck.

Access to the main public facilities on Deck 5 is convenient and comfortable for all passengers.  The cabins on Deck 6 and outdoor areas on Decks 7 and 8 can only be accessed via stairs and are not accessible to wheelchair users.


Étretat has two well-equipped wheelchair-accessible cabins on the same deck as all passenger facilities, including our 24 hour bilingual Information Desk. They are accessed via Deck 5 where you will be parked if travelling in a standard car. If travelling in a larger car, vehicle or motorhome, you will be parked near the lift but will have to access the main passenger areas via a 110m long corridor.  Decks 6, 7 and 8 are not accessible by wheelchair, and this is where all other cabins and two small outdoor areas are located.


If you or a member of your party has impaired mobility or if you are travelling with small children, you may find accessing some areas of the ship challenging. Some stairs are steep and not all car decks are accessible by lift. All cabins are accessed via a staircase except the wheelchair-accessible cabins on Deck 5.

Travelling onboard Baie de Seine

General information

If you (or a member of your party) are travelling with a wheelchair or if your mobility is restricted, please let us know so we can ensure you are parked on Deck 6, close to the passenger lifts. It will not be possible to travel on Baie de Seine and park near a lift if your vehicle is over 1.83m high or towing a trailer or caravan.

Wheelchair-accessible cabins

There are 2 wheelchair-accessible cabins located on Deck 8 and they are approximately 50m from the 24-hour Information Desk and lift, and further still from the rest of the onboard facilities. These cabins are not suitable for pets and you may find accessing some of the outside decks challenging.

Please note, we are unable to provide a wheelchair for use during the sailing.

Public facilities

The public facilities on board are readily accessible, however, please take into account the distance from the wheelchair accessible cabin to the rest of the public facilities before deciding which Brittany Ferries service is best for you.

There is a public disabled toilet located on deck 8 near the self-service restaurant.
