  1. One would thus assume that if she has a lengthy lay up in dry dock in early 2020 (and several months is rather significant) that Bretagne will probably not have her usual legnthy winter lay up and will operate regularly next winter?
  2. Sadly the chances of any ferry comapny (re)-opening a route to Scandinavia is pretty much zero. Quibz.
  3. Probably won't happen but one must agree cruising down into the city centre would be simply majestic!
  4. I have 'heard' rumours that DFDS have looked into the possibility of going into Amsterdam itself as they have done previous, would add an extra hour or two to the journey time but would definitely add to the cruise experience. Rottterdam and Vlissingen have also been explored. Could all be rumours but its not as absurd as it sounds.
  5. I genuinely believe that a service further into the continent, eg/ Zeebrugge or even Rotterdam would have an extremely good case.....
  6. Indecently this is not beyond the realms of possibility, however, she would not look right in the new logo, typeface and paint scheme!! I think one thing that made 'The Val' look so good was her large, intimidating logo and typeface! I had seen a travel agent photo of her in the 05-18 logo and typeface which never came into fruition and she didn't look right at all. I also saw a mock-up done similarly of Bretagne with the Z-stripe and 05-18 logo and font which also did not look right!!
  7. These rumours have been circulating for the last 3/4 even 5 years and I have heard them on-board myself on the King Seaways back in 2016. The fact that so much money has been spent on refurbishing them would indicate to me that DFDS intend to operate them for the near future. It would be very hard to find 2 similar vessels out there that offer the mini cruise offer that the two current vessels provide as there actually is not a lot of relatively modern tonnage available at all! Also as stated earlier any possible new build would only be in 2023 at the earliest. Quibz.
  8. In all seriousness she could get down the Mersey and down the MSC or down the Ribble and be broken up quayside.
  9. It does not look like the new vessles will have much outer deck space, mostly at the rear like the Harwich twns. That abundance of deck space at the top will likely be unaccessible which is a shame.
  10. I clearly remember it being a stable red light, like the other vessels out at sea.....the speed was quite something. To think it cleared my panoramic line of vision within a couple of minutes was quite something!
  11. Friday 4th January. Was past Whitby, it was dark but I recall there were a series of vessels lining up to enter a port I can only guess was Hull.
  12. That could have been a possibility but it must have been flying very low and at some speed. Also there was no flashing lights - just one stable light.
  13. Was moving far too quick for that! 😂😉
  14. I was supposed to make a post about this a coule of months ago and entirely forgot so thought I would post now as it is something that I have been thinking about revently. Back in Early January I was making an outward sailing to Ijmuiden on the King Seaways and late in the night I noticed a light, what looked like a ship, moving at a rate of knots across the sea from the starboard side of the vessel (between ourselves and the east coast.) It was travelling southwards in the same direction as us but totally outpaced us - it certainly was going faster than any normal vessel and even faster than a cat or hydrofoil at full speed - nevertheless there are none covering that area anyway. I would say it cleared my line of vision in a coulple of minutes. My only explanation would have been a cat but as I said none traverse that area - anyone got a ideas? It was the night of Friday 4th January. Many thanks!
