  1. The ship next to Honfleur, "Leevsten", has been taking on fuel from Fox Luna.
  2. Looking at the photo in the last post to this one we can see that this part of the hull is now painted.
  3. It looks as if they are painting Honfleur, over night or other.
  4. I would like to say sorry, if I am posting this in the wrong place. I have been looking at the winter timetable for LE Havre, and have noted that's BDS, will be replaced by Connemara, and used for the Tat, refit I think. I would take that to mean that when Honfleur, comes into services, Normandie, will replace Tat, and do the 1 run to Le Havre, as did BDS, and Connemara, will return to the Cork, services. ??
  5. Thank you Nick, for the update and for the info of it being linked to Sea France, I do recall Sealink and back to the days when BR, had it, only as my Dad, had checked the Tickets on the boat and trains when I was a Kid. ;-))
  6. On reading this post I have noticed that know one has commented the fact that BF, did run a service from the Islands to France, some years ago, and left, so why would they think of taking the Condor service over to extend from the Islands, to the main land when or if they wish just take the route back. ??
  7. I have just viewed the web cam for Honfleur, and see that the ramp has been lifted, and that the shipyards is now due to for launch, and that one has been painted as was WBY, and unlike Honfleur.

  9. I remember her first day when they did the ceremony, on board and we had Capt wheeler with us too. That's one more book closed for in the time of. ;-((
  10. Thank you for your fast reply's. I see that BDS, was due to do the run, also the Tat, dock at 19:30 hrs so would have thought it was she was done to do the run.
  11. Would someone like to say were the bad weather is. !!!
  12. Being reported today, is that with a no deal brexit, anyone going to the EU, may have to take driving lessons in say France, or Spain, and that drivers may be turned away from ports, How would this now effect BF's, or others. ???
  13. Today I was at the port of Le Havre, with a friend who went back on the Tat, the booking inn and customs along with the Police it took 30 min's for them to do 4 cars, if this is going to happen when Brexit starts 29 March, how many passengers will not travel. ??
  14. With the Economie, within BF, it's also about the Etretat which has so many bad points, like parking on the top deck, which is a nightmare, and the lack of food service, as for the Economie, going with the Tat, Le Havre will still be left with one visit per week from BDS, which is still a Economie, namliy for Spain, as for the rates for crossing on the Normandie, we will have to wait and see when she returns from refit.
  15. If BF, do a 3 ship per day I'd go with the morning trip and spend the time I hope eating in a restaurant and having a nice rest unlike how things are on the Tat. ;-))
