hi all
although weve done quiet a bit of travelling around europe this will be our first trip into spain.
Weve booked a dog friendly cabin with brittany ferries for the end of feb and wondered if there is a fridge in the cabin as we would like to be self sufficient with food .We are then travelling from santander to alicante area after shopping and are looking for a aires about 150 mls in for overnight stop if anyone can reccomend one
thanks a lot

I don't know about fridges, but what food are you wanting to keep cold? Is it food duo you crossing or everything from your fridge?

Don't know about a fridge in the dog friendly cabins but I doubt it, there are certainly none in the normal cabins. We take a portable fridge on board which obviously only holds a small amount of essentials.......bacon, gammon etc :)
Oh and a continental adaptor!

On and off for many years.
Wrap milk in a wet towel. The latent heat of evaporation will keep it cool - for a while at least.

Or freeze the milk (no more than a pint though) and let it defrost in the cabin.

You could also take a (frozen) freezer block and put that under or over what you wanted to keep cool and wrap the whole lot in a wet towel / tea towel. The towel might freeze to the block but that's okay. It does keep everything nice and cool. I have a little cool-bag that I use and have had stuff stay semi-frozen for 24 hours.

After paying 300 quid for a crossing a couple of meals on board wont break the bank. Full breakfast is only £9.99 or £2.50 if you are a Brittany Club Member. Very reasonable small cafe on 10 deck where you can get chips pizzas etc. One of the bars serve soup at about £3.50. Enjoy your crossing. BUSBY.
