  1. What big changes are in the pipeline?
  2. Thanks for clearing that up, always did suspect it was a fairly lame standard excuse! We're just happy to have the extra time enjoying the crossing,
  3. Only repeating what our reason for delays have been given in the past. However I think you'd find plenty of adverse currents around the Fromveur Passage!
  4. Several times over the years, never in challenging conditions, we have been delayed returning from Santander to Portsmouth. The reason has always been given as, 'adverse currents in Biscay'. If adverse currents can delay Pont Aven for up to three hours in calm conditions when it has the capacity to use four engines, surely we will be looking at considerable disruption to the running schedule until repairs are completed.
  5. Especially a vessel that is predominantly used in Biscay.
  6. I have no idea what replacing an engine would entail. However, should Pont Aven be out of service for the bulk of the summer season, would Brittany Ferries charter a temporary vessel in order to cope with demand?
  7. Is there any hope that they'll incorporate some Commodore cabins with balconies on the ships to Spain? Must be good for revenue as they always seem to sell out quickly.
  8. Could anyone recommend a good restaurant in or near St Malo please?
  9. Why has Pont Aven turned around and would seem to be heading back to Cork this evening?
  10. Would it be possible or viable to bring an E-Flexer up to the cruise ferry specifications of Pont Aven and subject it to prolonged use in Biscay or does a ferry have to be specifically designed and constructed for that route?

    Club Voyage

    How about priority boarding if that would be at all feasible?
  12. By chance I got talking to a member of Brittany Ferries staff whilst shopping in Santander last week. He seemed remarkably informed and somehow the conversation came around as to when the Pont Aven would be replaced. To my surprise he told me that a replacement for Pont Aven was destined to be constructed in St Nazaire, coming into service during 2020! Can anybody corroborate his claim or is it simply wishful thinking?

    Pont Aven

    A while ago I was browsing through some old posts and came across a dramatic photograph of Pont Aven entering Santander during a storm. She is at an amazing angle, caused I presume by a large swell catching her broadside. I have unsuccessfully tried to locate the photograph again on several occasions to no avail. Could anybody with a superior knowledge of this excellent site point me in the right direction please.
