Portsmouth to Cherbourg
Recent Changes
P&O recently revised their Portsmouth to Cherbourg service, reducing the number of ships operating it.   Formerly two vessels Pride of Hampshire and Pride of Cherbourg provided three sailings a day from each of the ports.   Now the new Pride of Cherbourg operates only twice a day, with overnight journeys provided every second evening.   The new ship is the former Isle of Innisfree from Irish Ferries which was made redundant by the arrival of the Ulysses last year.   It will operate in tandem with the fast craft Portsmouth Express during the summer months.
