    Next to Plymouth's stunning passenger gangway. They will shortly be loading passengers in the same crates as the supplies when the gangway rots through entirely

    Normandie Express - 2018 Season

    I wonder when NEX will return from her extended excursion to the Equator on the BF fleet tracker - she must have been there for several months now! 😉

    Is this a Stena charter or a new E-Flexer chartered from another group / holding company?

    Children's play areas which are really just some foam matting and a tiny TV screen. How about something like this to keep all of us amused, young and old alike? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-5650775/Pictured-Norwegian-Bliss-cruise-ship-Kart-track-deck.html Ed

    1944 - The Bombing of Le Havre

    We had an hour or two to wander round Le Havre back in 1995 and went into the church where the scars of the attack are still visible on the fabric.

    Published 2017 Pax Numbers So Far.

    The North Sea figures are worrying, particularly Hull-Zeebrugge. Given that P&O invested heavily in these ships just last year, the survival of this route as a passenger service, in the longer term, must be in doubt. Although I guess the Pride of Bruges being out of service for a while last year won't have helped.

    When is VOW due in to Portsmouth. Also, why have they never invested in passenger separate loading at Portsmouth via a walkway onto an upper deck. Would speed things up as currently keep stopping loading because a footie wants to get on. I know its not a primary function of the route with the CATS but its safer in the long term and I am sure a lot more people would use it as a footie if there was a bus from Fishbourne to Newport/Ryde that picked up at the terminal.

    What happened to Amorique ex Roscoff 23rd April?

    Hi Stu I think you’re confusing her afternonn departure with the usual Monday morning manœuvres that allow Cap Finisterre on the berth for her regular crew change, meaning Armorique has to pootle out in the bay for a couple of hours. I was on the sailing at 15h00 yesterday, régulation crossing, regulation course..... Chris

    Once had a jolly laugh waiting in the checkin queue at Plymouth watching a couple rearrange everything countless times in and out of every door on their car. He moves bag to rear door, she gets out after he settles into seat and moves said bag to another door. Jump back in car, move forward, do the rearrangement all over again. Wife and I had the giggles watching it all. We started to count the baggage moves, doors open fiasco. I should talk. Every trip seems to be "give me your passport". "I put it up there" "No you didn't,I cant find it" And so it goes on! Bye
  23. What happened to Amorique ex Roscoff afternoon departure 23rd April? Tracking shows a course NW rather than direct Plymouth then a long period drifting to the east with little progress north and then return to Roscoff. Another hold off Roscoff harbour. She seems to be on time and course returning to Roscoff overnight. Will ask staff on our trip back to Plymouth today. Stu

  25. Irish Ferries said it was contacting 2300 customers. That means 2300 bookings, not 2300 passengers. If a family of four has a booking, only one person needs to be contacted. https://www.irishferries.com/uk-en/news-listing/Important-announcement-re-wbyeats/

    Who? Superfast tried and failed with a pax service, now DFDS with freight service, sadly I think no one would want to risk it

    It is a shame, although I could easily see someone else taking it on, in one form or another
