Ship Information

Normandie Express

Normandie Express is a high-speed aluminium twin hulled catamaran capable of carrying passengers, vehicles and freight at a maximum speed of 42 Knots (about 78 kilometres per hour).

Mont St Michel

Named after the beautiful Normandy town of Mont St Michel, the ship offers passengers a host of other features including spacious cabins, a choice of restaurants, and facilities including bars, cinemas, a disco club and video gaming area designed specifically for teenagers.


Following the success of the Bretagne, Brittany Ferries commissioned the Normandie in 1991 for the route between Portsmouth and Caen. Named after the French region of the same name, it is decorated in traditional Norman style and colours, and features first-rate on-board facilities, including excellent dining, shopping and live entertainment.
