Le Bar

Overlooking the ship's bow on deck 8 with great views, the Baie de Seine bar offers a relaxing environment to enjoy a range of beers, French wines, spirits, soft drink, crisps and snacks.

Le Café

The café is located on deck 7 and sells a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks which can be enjoyed in the dedicated seating area.

Le Petit Marché

Located next to the café on deck 7 Le Petit Marché is ideal for passengers wishing to have a light bite rather than a full meal and offers a range of sandwiches, salads, soup, snacks and cakes, plus some healthy options.

Onboard accessibility

If you or a member of your party has impaired mobility or if you are travelling with small children, you may find accessing some of the outside decks challenging.

General information

If you (or a member of your party) are travelling with a wheelchair or if your mobility is restricted, please let us know so we can ensure you are parked on deck 6, close to the passenger lifts. It will not be possible to travel on Baie de Seine and park near a lift if your vehicle is over 1.83m high or towing a trailer or caravan.

Wheelchair accessible cabins

There are 2 wheelchair accessible cabins located on deck 8 and they are approximately 50m from the 24-hour Information Desk, and further still from the rest of the onboard facilities. These cabins are not suitable for pets and you may find accessing some of the outside decks challenging.

Please note, we are unable to provide a wheelchair for use during the sailing.

Public facilities

The public facilities on board are readily accessible, however, please take into account the distance from the wheelchair accessible cabin to the rest of the public facilities before deciding which Brittany Ferries service is best for you.

There is a public disabled toilet located on deck 8 near the self-service restaurant.
