Day One: Depart from your chosen point and travel to Portsmouth arriving in good time for our 20.15 overnight crossing to St Malo. Once aboard ship check into your cabin before exploring all the facilities this ship has to offer, including a choice of bars, restaurants and shops. Maybe watch the caberet with live music and DJ or take in the latest movies in the cinema?
Day Two: Maybe have some breakfast before ship arrives in St Malo at 08.15 Once we disembark ship we head south where you'll have a chance to catch up on some lost sleep (we're guessing some alcohol may have been consumed the night before) Throughout the journey we'll play a few videos, take a few short leg stretch/smoke breaks, lunch break at a motorway services. Remember our hostess will be serving hot/cold food & drinks to your seat throughout all at reasonable prices. We arrive at our 4*beachside hotel in the evening where a 3 course evening meals awaits you.
Day Three: After a continental breakfast we depart our hotel late morning and take the short drive to Bilbao for a short tour of the city before spending the next 8 hours savouring the pre-match atmosphere. You'll need to make your own way to the San Mames Stadium in your own time, where you'll rejoin your coach after the game. Shortly after leaving Bilbao it's lights out and snuggle down for our overnight drive to the channel port of Caen.
Day Four: A chance to take in some sea air, grab some lunch or sample a few more drinks at the small ferry port town of Ouistreham before our return 16.30 sailing back to Portsmouth. (We'll probably board ship an hour before sailing) Once aboard ship, once again enjoy all the facilities aboard ship. We arrive in Portsmouth at 21.30 and drive you back home. Cabins are not included on this daytime sailing back to Portsmouth (Optional £20.00 per cabin if required)
