  1. Hi Timmy, is it possible to look back and trace the route of the Stena ship that afternoon?
  2. Hi Timmy, The tanker came from right to left. Visibility was very good. I would have thought right have way would have been sorted without the need to cut power.
  3. Hi Everyone, Having recently travelled on the Stena Hollandica from Hawrich, I just thought I would mention how impressed I was with the cabins. We had a Comfort Class Cabin, with tv, fridge with complimentary water, fruit juices, beers, wine and snacks.😁. The beds were very comfortable with the lower bed being a double. They even had a separate shower to the toilet, and plenty of on tap shower gel. The ship had a relaxed ambiance, but I feel not the intimate experience of BF, nor was the food as good. That said, if the cabins, Windows/port holes on the new BF ships are of the same quality and size, we should be in for a treat with the new ships. One strange occurrence on the way back, Friday 31st, half way across, we came to a complete stop, and turned 90 degrees to starboard. I am not sure if it was a result of a tanker ship crossing our path, (the horn was blown) or if we lost power, as some say the cabin lights went off momentarily. (It was the 14.15 sailing back from Holland. I would guess it was a result of the other ship? Interested to know what you think. Cheers, James
  4. Hi, I really don’t agree with Bretagne being a better sea keeper than PA. What evidence do you have? It seems so often the PA gets slated.
  5. Good Evening All, With the exciting launch of Honfleur getting ever closer, it made me think if newly built ships have advanced safety features, such as how cars develope in a short space of time? Will Honfleur have any advanced over other ships within the fleet? Best wishes,
  6. It would be nice if BF share photos this year of some of the works carried out. 🤞
  7. Hi All, Does Ulysses have more horse power than the Pont Aven? I am guessing the Pont has the most horse power within the BF Fleet?
  8. Hello All, I believe its possible to pre-order dinner on the all Spanish Routes? If so, is the procedure still to queue until reaching the desk? I guess the main benefit is that a table will be reserved as opposed to tucking in sooner 😁
  9. Hi Andy, sadly my French isn’t the greatest. In short, do you know what’s being said? ☺️
  10. Hi Gareth, Thanks for your reply. could it not be argued the captain should have known better prior to setting off? weather forecasts, other ships notifying of conditions, and all the other mod coms on the bridge?
  11. Hi, Was the Cap really in such danger as Lofty eludes too? Sounds very scary if indeed she could have been in danger when turning.
  12. I wonder if Pont will receive new carpet to her main bar area?
  13. Hi Ferry Man, no, I meant deck five of the Arm is open ended. At times there can be I believe signs of wetness on the garage floor, no doubt from the spray. Could water not reach the fifth deck in a severe storm, making surely a completely closed ship a little safer?
  14. Hi, yes, seems most likely I guess. car was i. Deck 5, so on the arm it's a straight forward down on the lift with no water tight doors. i do always wonder if these type of ships are as seaworthy as a fully enclosed ship.
