Couldn't see it just now Pierre. The site's down. Is it a seasonal thing or is that it. Santander ? or is that only from Plymouth ?

They`ll terminate the service from Sept, seems the ferry "pride of bilbao" is chartered/hired, and the contract comes up for renewal then, P&O have decided not to continue. However there will still be the Brittany ferries portsmouth/plymouth - santander ferry.
Which no doubt Brittany will be rubbing their hands and calculating how much more they can charge for crossing, as they`ll be the only opperator running to Spain

I always used Brittany Ferries as I liked their boats better, could still do with some competition though......
