  1. I can recommend the Alembic Bar. Very friendly for an early evening drink.
  2. I think you will find that the greatest danger on holiday is a road traffic accident. Especially not looking when crossing the road. Its even true in places like Mexico and Guatemala.
  3. The hire company have your Credit card details and pay the fine for you.
  4. I used to know a court interpreter in France. She said it was the defendant who had to pay her.
  5. They must be very busy. I too got a ticket last week. The payment system is very sophisticated. Switched to English as soon as I typed the numbers in.
  6. Which is disproved by the xmas and half term sailings! If the port of Plymouth was good enough in Francis Drake's day I'm sure its good enough for BF. I have seen Armorique take on a pilot even on perfectly calm days. There are very good reasons why BF are wary when Navy ships are moving about. The navy have a security distance and are not very good at steering.
  7. I'm well over 20 years and yet to get anything.
  8. The hot food is nearly always overcooked and very dry. Have they ever changed the salad selection since the 1970s? The same large prawns over and over and over again. I used to like the Val de Loire with some of the Basque dishes on the restaurant menu. I especially liked something called 'pudding' which was like a very light savoury mouse with often a fish or seafood base.
  9. I try to book on the Pont Aven sailings from Plymouth if I can and find that the restaurant is often very busy. Early boarding is available on many sailings so there would be plenty of time for a meal if there were a restaurant. As for the self-service. ..... We prefer taking a picnic.
  10. I don't. No restaurant!😟 Also it looks just like the designers previous experience; designing prisons and hospitals.
  11. And avoid Brexit chaos by staying in France😄
  12. Why don't they kill time enjoying the delights Plymouth has to offer instead of sitting in their cars?
  13. I am often surprised at how many cars turn up very early at Plymouth. There is plenty of space around the BF offices for parking.
  14. Internet? We don't even have a mobile phone signal!☹️
  15. Night sailings affect us differently. Arriving at our cottage in the morning means we don't get hot water until the off peak meter cuts in on the first night. Arriving at night we get hot water on the first morning.
