"Il est tres shambolique? Non?"
This is a great trip from Jersey boarding is easy on foot. The staff are a delight. On board they are fantastic with good food and drink ready and waiting from the early morning ferries till the last of the day on a Friday. It's clean, it's efficient and a great start to a weekend. The return needs a total revamp on the St Malo side. They do manage to get everyone on board and set sail roughly on time so credit where it's due. However, the staff have a system to work with that is dysfunctional with long queues building up. School parties milling about and older people struggling to find seats. We were told the app is coming maybe next year.... Solve it with an app and an e ticket. A ticket dispensing machine and better signage. Groups should have to book in online or arrive earlier than families and individuals. Maybe if the manager was in the stocks outside for 30 minutes that would speed up modernisation. Maybe take a tip from almost any airline. Frankly it wasn't good enough. It didn't ruin anything and nobody got hurt but its a bit on the silly side for today!

"Great ride "
This being our first ferry trip we didn’t know what to expect but you certainly exceeded our expectations. All of your staff was friendly and professional. The crossing was smooth and ahead of schedule. Will definitely use you again if the need arises.

"The French Connection"
My wife and I looked at travel from Scotland to Dinard in France to visit friends. Due to timings involved in only air travel, we decided to fly from Edinburgh to Jersey then take Condor Ferry to St Malo. Have to say that ferry experience was first class. Easy to book, friendly staff, efficient security checks all good. The ferry left on time and reached St Malo ahead of schedule. Same on the return. Comfortable seating and plenty of good quality food and drinks.

"Easy Peasy "
Polite staff at the terminal in St Helier, orderly boarding process, clean seating, eating area, food was adequate for what I needed, smooth crossing and efficient disembark. What’s not to like? At St Malo, I do have a criticism. No bus outside the terminal to take you to the railway station. When one does find the bus stop, it is not clearly marked.

"enjoyed the very brief stay"
It's a shame but my brief stay was even shorter than planned. ( 2 days instead of 3 ) The outbound ferry was cancelled due to bad weather. I was given a sailing the next day, which left St Malo at 8am. As I had a 4 hour drive to St Malo I booked a hotel, in St Malo the night before, which was lovely but an extra expense. I lost a night in my hotel in Jersey and obviously a days sighteeing. which was a real shame. Next time I will factor in the weather ! ( dodgy in winter/spring ) Saying that, the ferry was great, couldn't fault it , from parking up to disembarking. Very friendly staff too. I have rated the quality of food as 1 as I didn't have any. there wasn't an option for " n/a "

"So Quick and Easy"
Hop over to Jersey for 10 days after lovely few days in France. Booking the ferry was simple, checking in and boarding was so quick & simple too. Whilst on the Ferry, crossings were so smooth and facilities were ideal and very clean. Would highly recommend crossing to anyone.

Great, smooth trip. The boat was great, really comfortable. The only difficulty was finding the right departure terminal at St Malo, poorly signposted
