8,000 Brittany Ferries passengers will enjoy the best views of HMS Queen Elizabeth tomorrow

15th August 2017

Around 8,000 Brittany Ferries passengers are expected to enjoy the best views of HMS Queen Elizabeth following her arrival into Portsmouth on 16 August 2017. They will pass the biggest ship ever to have entered Portsmouth Port on six scheduled services throughout the day, five serving destinations in France and one in Spain. HMS Queen Elizabeth’s scheduled arrival time of around 07:10 should also mean no disruption for passengers.

“We don’t anticipate delays to Brittany Ferries arrivals or departures in Portsmouth on Wednesday morning,” said Mike Bevens Brittany Ferries commercial director. “But we do expect holiday makers to enjoy some of the best views of this magnificent addition to the Royal Navy’s fleet as they travel with us today, and over the coming weeks.”

The largest Brittany Ferries vessel arriving into Portsmouth on Wednesday will be the Mont St Michel. Serving the company’s most popular Portsmouth-Caen route, she carries a maximum 2,170 passengers, weighs in at 35,586 tonnes, is 173 m long and travels at 21 knots. That compares with HMS Queen Elizabeth at 65,000 tonnes, 280m in length with a sailing speed of 25 knots.
