  1. I'm or we are not in Cherbourg, I live near to Le Havre, with a car and my other lives near Portsmouth, who also has a car, so now with the decision not to take foot passengers it now means we may meat again one day, as the cost of taking a car for day trips along with a cabin it would not be worth it.
  2. Well with this decision we will not have the need to re-new the membership, then with the loss off discount we will not be traveling anymore with BF.
  3. With so many if/but's or a maybe, looking at BF's, booking website I don't think I'll be sailing any place now as they are not taking bookings for foot passengers, not even on a day trip, I don't need to take a car as we have one on both side's of the water and yet if I had a motorbike they would take me, so the question now is, is this a form of discrimination. ??
  4. I have had my own interest in the ships for a long time now but I do feel it's now coming to an end with the problems that it may well face for a long time. We have been doing trips to and from Le Havre, since taking a home here but at this time we have been apart when all trips was stopped to the every day traveller, now with the lack of facts, with what the cost will be due to the fact of reduced numbers at this time if they can restart and needing the use of a cabin for a short crossing it will be a long time before any sort of the norm will come back. Many of us in the past, have been happy with BF, in their handling of problems, and fingers are being pointed at them over this, please remember that their hands are tide due to government's on which ever side of the pond and so they don't know what to do next, but I am sure the best is being done with any information that is given to them by any of the government's.
  5. Looking at BF, website I found I can do a booking in July, this year but not as a footy but I can take the car and have to book a cabin, which don't pay anyone if going for a weekend.
  6. With what's going on with Honfleur, build, if she was to be moved to another port, to be completed, how would any of the guarantees work or would they not void
  7. What I don't understand about the port of Le Havre, if it's closed as the news reports I get on French, TV, and by BF, updates, why is it that other ships still dock in Le Havre. ???
  8. We take the car over and get all that we have programed into it, and it works well, I don't know if you can tune UK, Radio when your in france.
  9. I see that the Etretat, is heading for Cherbourg, so will turn for Le Havre, at some point. Whit them needing the use of a Tug, to dock why would they put passengers, at risk. @Chef how can we find out how big the Wave's are for tonight's crossing. ??
  10. How is it that with so many not running tonight we still have the Etretat, going in the high winds tonight. ??

  11. Are the strikes going to have any impact on the ports that BF, sail too, if so how can we find out the dates or updates to it. ??
  12. Leevsten, left at 6:35 local time, the dam was lowered last night ready for the launch today.
  13. With the Honfleur, due some time soon we hope, it would be good to see the return of the 7:30am arrival to Le Havre, as it gives time for a round trip on the local bus to Honfleur, as by naming a ship which promotes Honfleur, unlike drivers foot passengers would have the day to visit and get something to eat working also that the boat leaves at 5:30pm.
  14. The ship next to Honfleur, "Leevsten", has been taking on fuel from Fox Luna.
