A new UK to Spain service between Poole and Santander in Northern Spain is being introduced.
LD Lines is the company providing the service. It’s hoped the new link will give UK motorists even more access to tourist places like the Algarve.
The Vessell covering the route is the Norman Asturias. It has a capacity for up to 500 passengers, 200 cars or 110 freight vehicles. On board facilities include 120 cabins, bar, restaurant, shop, cinema and childrens’ entertainment area.
The service begins on Sunday 3rd November with a 1800 departure from Santander. It will provide two return sailings weekly with a crossing time of 26 hours.
Special introductory offer fares for the new service start from £399 return for a car and two passengers including cabin.
