Most memorable would have to be my Portsmouth to Bilbao on the Cap F on 23rd December 2014.. We set sail late from Portsmouth due to bad weather, arrived late in Roscoff for staff change late again, then set sail for Bilbao.... about two hours into the sailing whist sitting in a lounge one could see the sea higher than the port windows on either side on the 7th floor!! Not being deterred by this i went to book a table for supper in the Restaurant only to be met by staff franticly putting away all glasses and cutlery, this was on Captains orders as we were heading into a bad storm, so no booking for supper were being taken at this point. Shortly after there was an announcement by the Captain for all passengers to return to their cabins as he was going to attempt to turn the ship around as it was impossible to sail any further due to what was now Storm force weather - the danger was that the ship would roll!!! We returned to our pet friendly cabin and sat with our Labrador in deathly silence - watching our dog slide from porthole to cabin door without standing up!! The silence and fear was deafening as we awaited further instructions. The turn around was a success however we could not sail back either so we had to take shelter in a cove on the side of France where we would be safe for the night. After a short period of time when had started breathing again we ventured out into the upper decks reception area where we found total carnage of office papers scattered everywhere and soaked carpets where the sea had managed to flood in, what a mess it was.. But the staff were amazing, as if nothing had happened - the restaurant re opened to those who still had an appetite, the wine and food was flowing .. the flashing lights over the ship were a bit worrying as we looked out of our porthole, but were calmly told that it was a helicopter landing to collect a poor chap who had broken his collar bone - an hour later the flashing lights started again this time it was another helicopter as the first one was too small due to the size of the patient - sorry passenger but we did chuckle to ourselves!! Later that evening the captain announced that over the night he would make his decision as to head for Bilbao or return to Brest.... The next morning the boat was moving - arh! Bilbao we thought!! Alas no, we were heading back to Brest where we all had to disembark and make our journey from there to wherever....We were heading to Portugal towing a large car along with our Christmas Fair this was now Christmas Eve afternoon.....We made it to San Sebastian very late Christmas Eve where we slept in the car -- we awoke on Christmas Day with a long haul through Spain down to Portugal - We opened our box of Christmas crackers, wore our paper hats and ate mince pies and set off home - we were almost the only people on the road, the sun shone and for most of way and we sang Christmas carols to put us in the mood - We arrived home in time for Downton Abbey and a half a pint of Baileys on ice!!!!! Looking back it was very memorable indeed!!!
