Armorique

Operated by Brittany Ferries on the Plymouth Roscoff route

Specifically designed and built for Brittany Ferries, the Armorique was introduced to their fleet in 2009. Carrying up to 1,500 passengers and 470 cars, the ship follows a modern design with décor that beautifully captures the lights, colours and space of the Brittany region and its maritime heritage. There's plenty of space to move around on board (both inside and on deck) with an open plan feel, and lots of areas to relax, including a quiet zone.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

Armorique offers passengers a choice of 248 cabins - all of which are en-suite and air conditioned as well over 300 reclining seats spread throughout the ship. There are also a number of cabins adapted for disabled passengers.

Onboard Food and Drink

Armorique features a self-service restaurant offering a fantastic choice of foods from around the world, as well as French favourites such as mouth-watering minute steaks, cooked to your liking on the spot! There's also a salad buffet, great choice of desserts, and drinks, including wines and beers to accompany your meal. This all takes place in a very light and spacious dining area with a choice of tables to suit your group size as well as panoramic views. The children's soft play area is also situated within this area, so is a great place for families.

Serving sandwiches, cakes, pastries and hot and cold drinks, Le Café, not only offers a delicious choice of snacks, it's also a great place to relax and enjoy time with your fellow passengers in a relaxed atmosphere with a number of flat screen televisions and plenty of space and seating.

Just a long from the restaurant area, the main lounge bar continues Armorique's open plan feel offering further seating as well as a quiet zone. Serving everything from the finest French wines to cocktails as well as a choice of cold and hot drinks, this light and airy area is ideal for relaxing over a drink and enjoying the terrific views. There are also a number of flat screen televisions showing big sports matches and news updates.

Onboard Shopping

Perfect for gifts, souvenirs, or just a treat for yourself, Armorique boutiques offer a fine range of spirits, wine, tobacco, perfumes and cosmetics, leather goods, confectionery, toys, fashion, decoration, souvenirs, newspapers, games, cameras, sunglasses, jewellery and much more! All are at great prices, and certainly worth a browse.

Purchases made on board may be paid for in Euros or Sterling. Payment can be made in cash, by credit or debit card. Prices are shown in both currencies and you can combine different payment methods.

Additional Onboard Facilities

There are 2 cinemas onboard where you can catch some of the latest films. 'Wi-Fi time' can be purchased from the information desk. Armorique features plenty of deck space so you can stretch your legs and and enjoy a calm spot to relax, while enjoying the sea air and incredible views, particularly when entering or leaving the port. There is also a cash machine dispensing euros, a baggage room and baby changing rooms.

  • "First timers"

    this was our first time using the ferrie and it was just so easy. The boarding staff were helpful and friendly and the ships facilities were more than eceptible. It was a good experience and we will be doing a lot more trips via the ferrie. I would recommend getting a cabin for the night crossing..

  • "Luxury!!!"

    Having travelled with P & O to Calais earlier in the week to get to France as we were driving to Brittany via Disneland we were very pleasantly suprised by Brittany Ferries in lots of ways, the experience couldnt have been more different or any better. The cabins were very comfortable and functional and all the communal areas eg bars, restaurants shops were all spotlessly clean and uncrowded. No problem finding somewhere to sit wherever we were on the ship. Staff incredibly pleasant and everything was so relaxed. Food and drink was not overpriced either and considering we were on there for 6 hours the time passed very quickly. My husband had a pint of stella for just £3.40 and you could get a proper meal for as little as £8. It felt like we were not being taken advantage of because they had a captive audience. There was even a magician who did a short act and then balloon models for the kids. I cannot praise Brittany Ferries enough and they will definitely be my absolute only choice from now on. I would definitely also recommend booking through Direct Ferries, I saved a lot of money on what is an expensive route between Brittany and England.

    We had a cabin for the outward journey and a seat for the return journey. The cabin was clean and well presented and the morning call timely. The breakfast was fast and efficient, The seat on the return was good and the food excellent if not a little pricey. All the crew where very pleasant polite and efficient.

    Couldn't be happier with our crossings. The cabin was spotlessly clean. No problem ebarking or disembarking. Very well organised, though breakfast was a bit hectic which is understandable. Will def. use again.

  • "Roscoff to Plymouth"

    The ferry sailed on time and arrived on time. Pleasant crossing. Staff friendly and helpful. Disappointed with the meal menu - vegetarian option had been substituted for something different which meant my wife did not get an evening meal: just a snack. Plenty of room for the number of passengers. Very pleased to get a sailing to Plymouth - these are like gold dust!

  • "Christmas break."

    Despite not being able to travel to the uk for over a year, my wife and I were really looking forward to this trip. We were not disappointed. Despite the rough seas the AMORIQUE was a steady boat and a pleasure to be on board. We had travelled on the NORMANDIE previously and felt very much at home. The start and end of our holiday was as good as the family holiday we had in between. A pleasure to travel on Brittany Ferries again. Thank you

  • "Great Sailings"

    This was the first time I've ventured across the Channel by sea ( Always preferring the Tunnel) and I was very very impressed with the quality of the 'Armorique'Ferry travelling over to Caen. I had a beautifully designed, clean and contemporary cabin and the rest of the ship was equally beautifully presented, comfortable and warm. The food is outstanding and next time I travel over I shall eat a full meal on both crossings - French chefs know how to treat their customers as well as keep the food fresh and everything was spotless. The French/English staff were cheerful, professional and chatty. Most importantly the voyage for my husband and I was a real success and we'd definitely travel with Brittany Ferries every time.

  • "A Pleasant Experience"

    My wife and I recently took at trip from Portsmouth to Normandy and return. Both crossings were very pleasant. Luckily the weather was mild and the sea was calm. We were both impressed with the overall level of cleanliness on both vessels. Armorique and Mont San Michel. Crews were pleasant and accommodating. I thought cost wise that the service was reasonable value for money.
