  5. No Christmas/New year cruises this year.

    Not far for some of us
  6. No Christmas/New year cruises this year.

    The sold out is on 2017 New Years cruise ie last year's. No doubt to encourage early booking for this year
  7. French supermarket favourites

    The French packet soups are way superior to ours both in quality and selection although have noticed they seem to be moving more to ready made cartons now. Mainly made by Maggi so available in all the supermarkets. Also tins of Tartiflette which you definitely can't find over here. With wine we tend to take a gite and sample a few bottles while over and then get a selection of the ones we liked best to bring back.
  8. P & O Zeebrugge Ferry Upgrades

    Booked on the Pride of York for our holidays this September. Never been on this route before but a lot less driving from Durham than down to Portsmouth for the Bretagne.
  9. 2017 Schedules Now Available

    I got an email notice 2 days before balance was taken fom my card mind you that was a combined ferry and gite booking so I don't know if that's different.

  11. Driving in Paris

    i've driven in Paris once. Soon as I got to the hotel the car went into the car park till it was time to come home. An experience not to be repeated.

  13. Brexit may raise BF fares

    We took our own pen so if anyone wanted to rub it out they couldn't - but not saying which side would want to rub it out
  14. Ouistreham or Saint Malo?

    I prefer St Malo crossing cos being a lazy so and so I appreciate the more civilised arrival time so a more normal getting up time - also time for a relaxed evening meal before turning in.
  15. Caen - Portsmouth 1st November 2014 23:00

    I was in this position a few years back and did a dummy run booking each day till it came up with a cabin available. When I rang in the booking desk didn't even know it had become available till they checked. A bit of a bind remembering to do it each day but it worked for me. Must admit it was a few months in advance of travel rather than a couple of weeks but might be worth doing.
