    Environmentally friendly???

    It's a shame though, because aesthetically only Barfleur and Armorique haven't suffered in their appearance. But hey ho. Didn't BF get EU funding for the work too?

    Penn Ar Bed

    Interesting stern door on the Duchesse Anne, when did that change to what she's got now? Was that with BF?

    Penn Ar Bed

    Sailed on Duchesse Anne as a young child late 80's. All i remember she was pretty small and i was disappointed that she wasn't as good as the Duc!

    Barfleur and MSM probably not been together that often before either. You really pick up the size difference.

    P&O Pride Of Hull/Rotterdam

    Pride of Hull and Pride of Rotterdam - just back from refit are both moored in Europort today. Hull on the berth and Rotterdam on the next linkspan down. Hope someone gets a photo as it's rare they're together at the same time.

    Some help please

    Welcome back, if you’re after a decent restaurant then I’d suggest Bretagne, which will be back on St Malo by then. The Caen boats have got the restaurants but I’ve read on here that it’s not always open on Normandie, although over Easter it should be.

    Is Bretagne ready to go too? She’s having work done whilst alongside isn’t she? Do you think Barfleur might go via Kiel Canal? She’s not the fastest is she so it could save valuable time.

    Cabins for Passengers with Restricted Mobility

    We have a baby and although technically a cot will fit in a 2 berth we have gone for 4 berth for each times for the 3 night crossings we've done this year. 2 of these have been on the north sea with P&O where we've folded one lower bunk and put the cot in it's space. We didn't do that on Armorique in the summer but perhaps we could have, can't remember. It was an outside 4 berth. But point being a 2 berth although technically large enough would be hard work with a cot. I took the top bunk in each case and although it's not my favourite place to be its ok. I'm in my mid thirties though and can well appreciate that some won't want to use an upper bunk, my wife has always avoided them and she's younger than me... One thing we've booked on the P &O Rotterdam boats in the past is their 2 berth cabins which only have lower berths. Great idea, plenty of space although i do miss taking the spare pillows off the top bunks, and so have to request more from reception. But anyway, point being is that seems a sensible idea. Do BF have only lower berths in any of their non-club cabins?

    Agreed. She could have used a tidy up externally.

    Yes she's alongside currently, I guess as you and @Fine Whine stated it's because of the weather then. Thanks

    See Cap has put into Brest today. Have I missed this somewhere else? Not routine is it?

    What sort of condition is she in during lay up? As in, I presume an engine ticks over for her power and she has a skeleton crew on-board but the majority of the crew including hotel staff are not on-board during this period?

    St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    Bretagne is still sitting in Pompey anyway..guess she's not off tonight either? Edit. Just realised she was supposed to be on overnight from France not daytime..

    That is interesting. How many were offline a couple of years ago when Armorique ended up going to Spain and Bretagne came back early? Also apologies if I've missed this but why does the Cap need so much maintenance compared to the others- I know she's the busiest in terms of activity, but she's been in every year right? Whereas Pont Aven didn't have any downtime last year if I remember rightly, she doesn't do that much more work than the Pont and she's only a few years older too.
