  1. Dream on. There won't be any passenger ferries this year.
  2. It doesn't look like I'll be taking a ferry to France this year unless the FO withdraw their "you should not travel abroad unless it is essential" advice, and the French withdraw their requirement for all arrivals from the UK to spend 14 days in quarantine. This might be reviewed at the end of June, but I'm not expecting any great changes by then.
  3. Inside Olau is available on Amazon kindle, if that's of any interest to you.
  4. Looking forward to Monday's announcement. Hoping they'll actually be in a position to tell us something concrete.......we can but dream. Barfleur currently moored in the centre of Caen (wtf?), and I'll expect her to drop me off there next time, and save me the drive up from Ouistreham. Hoho!
  5. 60 cabins on Barfeur (including wheelchair accessible ones).
  6. The much awaited, for us anyway, latest announcement from BF CEO today at 16:30 BST, was inconsequential. Next one scheduled for May 18th.
  7. Sorry, I've just taken another look at this, and either the webpage didn't load properly or the timetable hadn't been populated for some other reason. Looking at the timetable indicates that you can book anytime after all. I believe BF are announcing their latest plans on May 15th.
  8. I see that some ferry timetables for 2020 have appeared on the BF website fairly recently. At present, bookings aren't available until mid September. I know there can be no real certainty on this, but I wonder if any of you insiders would care to speculate whether this is a final decision or if we could just as likely see the ferries running again by July or August?
  9. Which links do you mean? This one? But no live ship positions map, which has always worked fine until March 12th, using the link on the page I refer to above.
  10. ............not working since midnight on March 12th. What can this mean?🤔
  11. And very useful it is too. https://www.cestlagreve.fr/calendrier/?lieu=0&secteur=157 Here in the UK we have wade through media reports to find out what's going on.
  12. The .gov passport & travel websites, Brittany Ferries website, my car insurance website (green card? IDP?) and so on and so on, all have unhelpful outdated information stating that "if we leave without a deal on Jan 31st 2020....." We're leaving at the end of this month, then there's a transition period until Dec. 31st 2020, and nothing will change until then allegedly. Meanwhile, it would be nice to get some reassurance that when we travel later this year we won't get in an argument with the ferry check in staff about the validity of my passport (re pending expiry date), that
  13. Does anyone know what the rules are about the time left to expiry of a passport, for travel to France after Jan. 31st? To cut a long story short, I looked at the .gov passport checker website and it said my passport was not valid 'if we leave with no deal', so I'm now rather puzzled, especially as I thought it would be OK if we had at least 7 months from the date of travelling before expiry.
