Portsmouth to Bilbao Ferry

Hi - I'm thinking on booking the 27th December ferry from Portsmouth to Bilbao. I'm gearing myself up for a trip from Scotland - Portsmouth - Bilbao - Morocco - Dakar on my '05 F650GS. Wondering if anyone else going on ferry to Bilbao.

Been lurking on the site for ages - this is my first post - brilliant site!!!

Thanks.

You won't be alone on the ferry, there's a group of four of us also planning on Morocco and further south, returning early Feb. Did the same last year, it was a reasonable crossing. Personally I'm not planning to go via Lisbon, but instead will head straight for the Middle Atlas and beyond. You should plan for cold weather and an electrically heated jacket is a wise investment: http://www.gerbing.eu/
