  1. Cap Finistere

  2. Wightlink New Linkspans

    They should have safety barriers. Because of the health & safety to take into consideration.
  3. Hull-Rotterdam-Hull 11th-14th July

    Why didn't P&O registered the ferries under the Isle of Man instead of the Bahamas.
  4. What is going to happen the the Stena Baltica x Contentin? I wonder if Brittany ferries will have her back. Because if there is any plans for her to return. I wonder if she will be converted to a Ro pax?
  5. Baie de Seine/Etretat

  6. HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    When the Normandie is redeployed to the Le Havre to Portsmouth. Will that mean she will also be re registerer?
  7. The former Isle of Inisfree 95

    The former Irish ferries Isle of Inisfree . Has been bought but her charterers in New Zeeland. So she will be reflagged under New Zeeland. So now we know she will remain in New Zeeland.
  8. Why do so many people hate the Armorique?

    I travel on the Armorique just over some 15 mouths ago , from Portsmouth to Caen. To me even though she didn't have a waiter service restaurant. But to me I didn't find anything wrong traveling on her.
  9. BF Refits 2017

    Surely if UK ships are flying the flag of convenience because of avoiding UK employment laws. And employing Cheap Labour overseas. I believe people like us would still like a job working on ships as many of us are ship enthusiasts. Because what these foreign crew are paid , I bet its more then some of us are getting on benefits here if we get any or not. I prefer working on a ship then sitting around at home doing nothing. Because what I don't understand is for example P&O , Irish ferries employ foreign crew and at the same time trying to advertise people to use their ferries and at the same time there are many in Ireland and here haven't a job. To me that don't make sense. If I go to Ireland I will use Stena Line because least they are supporting the local crew.
  10. Cap Finistere

    I travelled on the Pont Aven to Santander and came back on the Cap Finistere from Bilbao. There was a lot of difference between the 2. The Pont the restaurants were a lot better and the lay out too. The Cap mind you the cabin were far better then the Pont. As I agree on some I didn't like the lay out of the restaurant of the Cap as it was split up. It seem strange having people walk through the corridor. While the outside all you seem to do is go through a load of glass panels . So mixed feeling about the Cap Finistere
  11. The new world

    How I voted on this referendum. I personly voted to stay in. Because true at times there were somethings the EU did many of us including those who are in the Eurozone disagree on . But it was better the devil we all know then the devil we don't. As the UK now had jumped from the frying pan into the fire.

  13. My Ferry Link Sold to DFDS

    I wonder why they didn't retain Calais as the port of Registration instead. As it a French port.
  14. SCRUBBERS: Mont St Michel

    Is the Mont have any work done to her interer?
  15. CONDOR FERRIES: Commodore Clipper trip

    Why they never built a sister ship to the Commodore Clipper I just don't know. Because if the Clipper is away for a refit. And at times they can't use the Cat. Everyone is stuck .
