  1. Disappointed Pont Aven

    My parents said that their cabin wasn't very clean on their recent trip. They also returned on Bretagne and made similar comments to the OP. PA's larger number of cabins may be a factor, especially during the summer when she runs nearly full
  2. St Nazaire to Gijon

    http://www.passengership.info/news/view,baleria-orders-two-new-gasfuelled-ferries-in-200-million-deal_46349.htm I think these are the new ships for Balearia. I'm led to believe they are being built at the same yard as, but they are different than the normal visentini ship.
  3. HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    I was hoping to find the exact photo on twitter. Under #bfrefits Anyway, it was discussed in this thread, and I remember clearly seeing a photo of a proper ramp between Decks 3 and 5 on Normandie.
  4. Old Bretagne Picture, stairs in main shop

    Hiya. I asked this same question a few years ago. Here is a link to the thread...
  5. HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    After Honfleur arrives, do you think that Armorique will continue to provide refit cover, or will Normandie take over this role until she retires?
  6. Breakfast in Roscoff?

    Off-peak, the Sunday morning arrival into Roscoff is 10:00 French time giving you a bit more time.
  7. Why do so many people hate the Armorique?

    It would be interesting to see which sees more complaints: no a la carte on the Armorique, or no self-service on Cap Finistere?

    Is there anything wrong with / any reason why they couldn't use the names: Trouville or Pont L'Eveque (BF had 2 'Ponts' for a while)
  9. Why do so many people hate the Armorique?

    I personally think that Armorique is a great ship, well-laid and almost perfect for the route she serves. If people want a meal in the a la carte, the Pont-Aven option is there. But a lot of people don't. They want a cheap meal from the self-service, a quick browse in the shop and then a comfortable lounge/sofa/cabin. The Armorique better caters for this than Pont-Aven which (as has been mentioned) lacks lounge seating. Personally, I quite like the decor on the Armorique. It's an attempt to have something a bit different (each ship is unique) and more modern. We have enjoyed many crossing on her and hope to continue so in the future. P.s. My avatar is the Armorique - so I'm certainly a fan!
  10. Portsmouth Berth 4 to be replaced

    Hi Chris. When I said twin ramps I was referring to what looks in the image two ramps which go up either side which connect to the upper level.
  11. Portsmouth Berth 4 to be replaced

    I'm guessing the image in the article is what the new structure will look like? Is there any advantage to having twin ramps?
  12. Tallink ordered new 49,000 ton ferry

    The ship is now in service. Surprised the forum has missed this! http://worldmaritimenews.com/archives/211159/tallink-welcomes-new-lng-powered-ferry-megastar/ dedicated website... http://megastar.tallink.com/ tallink webpage http://www.tallinksilja.com/en/web/int/tallink-shuttle-megastar-helsinki-tallinn-helsinki
  13. BF Refits 2017

    In case anyone hadn't seen, there's photos of Bretagne after refit on facebook. It appears she now wears the correct application of BF livery.
  14. The Demise of Cherbourg

    Sorry to be picky but the A37 isn't dual, I don't think it ever will be.
  15. HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    Don't know which ones, but I swear on some ships there are the painted lines and also spots (something like a cateye) in place to mark a wider lane.
