If you’re looking to travel to the South-western region of Europe, a Plymouth Santander ferry is an excellent choice as it can take you between England and Spain. It is the most direct route from England to Spain as the crossing takes just about 20 hours 15 minutes.
Currently, Brittany Ferries is the only operator to sail to Santander and the crossing service operates twice each week, leaving Plymouth every Sunday and Wednesday.
Your holiday starts the moment you board the Brittany Ferries’ flagship with a luxury travel experience.

The Commodore Cabins are the most luxurious onboard accommodation option on the ferry, offering the following benefits:
