  1. Hi. Am off to Brittany (near Quimper) next month. I'd ideally like to arrange hire if a mobility scooter for a week. I'm struggling to find any information online for them. We're sailing to and from Roscoff so could collect one en route if needed,but I'd prefer to have one delivered locally. So if anyone knows anything about these things I'd be very grateful.
  2. Is there still a bit of the superstructure to fit towards the stern? Looks incomplete..
  3. Slightly off topic but also about boarding Armorique...we have booked a club plus in August. However, I am temporarily in a wheelchair. Dies zntine know the boarding procedures for disabled people? We could switch our cabin to accessible but Arm only has 2 berth accessible cabins and we have our 2 small kids with us so hoping I can get through the door in the normal cabin. Will call bf to enquire but if anyone has any previous experience I'd be glad for it. Thanks
  4. Do you think they'll do anything with the 3 dormitories she has? The AF website suggests she should be a step up from the others. More similar to BDS than Etretat?
  5. I don't know the reason for it, but I've been on quite a few ferries where there was more wash on one side than the other, so perhaps it's quite common.
  6. If only Honfleur was ready they could have used Normandie on St Malo and sent Bretagne to help out in Plymouth. Would they put Etretat on a couple of Spanish runs?

    I wonder if Bretagne then will go off to dry dock fairly soon into the winter schedules so she's ready for a busier than planned winter/new year.

    They tend to close Plymouth down over winter

    With Pont Aven scheduled for "several months in dry dock in early 2020 " as stated in the press release. Presumably we can expect Bretagne to have a busier winter? Unless they put Armorique on St Malo? Long way ahead, but was wondering what plans they might make.

  11. Could have been the rnli. Boats queuing for immingham and possibly the cats that go out to the windfarms?

    Are they going to finish painting her?
  13. Have BF ever used Cap Finisterre for a cruise? With her speed she could be an alternative choice alongside Pont Aven? Although I guess she's required for Spanish duties if PA is away.
  14. P & O don't offer it as a cruise, however whichever boat is berthed in Europoort will sail down the river and moor by the Erasmus Bridge for the night. The Zeebrugge boat sails out to sea and anchors off Ostend so that passengers can watch the fireworks there. Both more exciting than a night alongside in Hull which is what they offer over here. The DFDS one to Amsterdam seems to be the best alternative. Would BF ever do one to Bordeaux?

    She looks great. I have to say that I think they all look great in their new paint jobs,with the exception of the apparently only touched up Bretagne... Would have been nice to have the stripy stern back on Normandie, but other than that great job all round. MSM and Barfleur will suit it too when their time comes.
