Cruising on PONT-AVEN

PONT-AVEN was built in 2004, the ship replaced the VAL DE LOIRE on the Plymouth to Santander route, she is the flagship of BRITTANY FERRIES, her maiden voyage was on the 23.3.2004, I was on board and was immediately conquered by her charming interiors, the best passenger facilities of the fleet, reducing the crossing time six hours in those days was something to stay with me forever, feeling the power of PONT-AVEN sailing at 28 knots was unbelievable, the sheer power of her engines could be experienced throughout the ship, with minimum vibration, her wrap-around promenade deck is a wonder, so unusual these days even on the latest cruise ships, the service on board has been since then, just impeccable, in short, she is a wonderful first time cruising experience, this week I was back on board for what I seem to believe my trip number 30 on the ship, it was another great trip, calm seas, sunny weather, wonderful food and opportunity for many photos and of course the opportunity to visit the ship's bridge, arriving Santander is something really spectacular, thank you to the marvelous crew, these are moments I will never forget.
