  1. There are very few trains running in France this weekend due to a wildcat strike by drivers. For the moment there is no indication of when they will go back to work. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.apnews.com/a9edc6b0d11b4b978b27301f766c8cf6&ved=2ahUKEwjkyojI9qjlAhWwxYUKHZ22DvA4FBAWMAx6BAgAEAE&usg=AOvVaw3argHh4vDmJoX08op1gvb2 Here is the SNCF site to check if a train is still running or not. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://en.oui.sncf/en/help-en/disruption-information-latest-update-exchanges-and-refunds&ved=2ahUKEwjQ18T6-ajlAhURyxoKHQknBa8QFjAAegQIAhAB&usg=AOvVaw3WQ4y4CK1nagUNW0j2iNeL Ed
  2. This TripAdvisor review was brought to my attention yesterday. It concerns Etretat and the state of her cabins. When you see the accompanying photos the word 'grim' in the title should really be 'grime'. I think that is inexcusable particularly given they are hard floors and can be washed down. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g186258-d214968-r713597907-Brittany_Ferries-Plymouth_Devon_England.html?m=19905 Ed
  3. I don't believe you can troll an inanimate and non-sentient object and at the moment PA is tied up alongside in Roscoff. Ed.
  4. It's false advertising. Only three of them are excellent. 😂 Ed.
  5. Absolutely not. He's swatting miscreants down left, right and centre. https://twitter.com/BrittanyFerries/status/1185205133954764802?s=20 Ed
  6. I think Mr Wonnacott has had a trying week. https://twitter.com/BrittanyFerries/status/1185199377272446976?s=20 Ed
  7. True, so perhaps more strictly-applied and policed rules would be a better description. And that goes for those who are members as well as those who are not. Ed
  8. I don't think you're allowed to say that anymore under the new forum rules. I think you meant to say they would get a severe telling off and if it happens again will be sent to the naughty corner. There are also no 'blithering idiots' just IT professionals who know better than we do. It's not our job to tell them what to do. And it's not 'crap', it's progress. Aside from all that, I fully agree with your assessment and so, apparently, do many others. Ed.
  9. That could I imagine be relatively easily rectified though by splitting off part of the existing self-service area. Ed.
  10. A million euros to slap some green and orange paint on the floor! I'd have done it for half that. I really must register to be sure I get sent these tenders next time. Ed.
  11. I'd say the reason is probably that BF have already sold your place to the Caravan Club at cost price plus 5% so were in the money before you even planned your trip and now just hope your onboard spend is lucrative. Selling to you direct costs BF more in staffing, web support and potentially compensation if something breaks so they up the price. And then double it for good measure. Ed.
  12. The French sailing updates page appears to have been taken over by one of BF's gremlins this morning. The information is there (and might even be accurate although I have my doubts) but it's suddenly become much more colourful. https://www.brittany-ferries.fr/traversee/horaires/infos-trafic Ed.
  13. And with close to €500 saved you can afford to eat on board too. Ed.
  14. Quite! That now fits with what I'd expect to happen and what I suggested on the previous page of this thread. What surprised me was more that they told us, and gave Jim permission to publish, something that actually contradicts that and increases our expectations in the full knowledge that anybody (forum members, guests etc) could read the information. This, in my opinion, just muddies the waters further. They should have one line and stick to it. As to Solo's question. They don't need her right now and would have to put another ship to bed if she turned up. Plus we know that W B Yeats has just had her first inspection. Given their design similarities, and the problems experienced with the IF ship, I wouldn't be surprised if both BF and FSG are waiting to see the report before sending her out for sea trials and handing her over. They've got time to fix things now which they won't have once she's in service. Ed.
  15. Yesterday they told us they expected her to be in service before the summer. Today on Twitter they don't seem quite so confident. Ed
