    Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    To those without maritime expertise, this appears to be disgraceful, and must be a major embarrassment to BF

    Portsmouth check-in; some advice please.

    I use the Wetherspoon next to the cinema at Port Solent - speedy food service, shopping therapy on the boardwalk for Mrs N - just 10mins to the ferry and loads of free, easy parking
  3. I never travelled on Duchesse Anne, but she looks like the style I would have liked!

    Grumps corner

    The almost obligatory 'magical' acts included in the evening entertainment schedules! Never enjoyed one yet. More live music would be better appreciated Is there ever any live entertainment on the Caen ships, or have I just missed out on particular sailings? Last Saturday 21st, outbound on Bretagne there was a very good singer, Roz Turner - hope they book her again. Returning last night (26th), the magician was dire as usual and the duo 'reasonable'. I felt for the children's entertainer - with a audience of about six youngsters he tried so hard!

    Ship Orders

    Red Funnel using British shipyards is good to see.

    HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    As a pensioner, I like the idea of 'boarded laminate' -have it in my own home (but not the bedroom). Will make cleaning up after those pesky pets (and pensioners!) a whole lot easier.

    Diverted to Bizerte anchorage (Tunisia), perhaps just 'killing time' before proceeding to Gibraltar - a very steady voyage so far, mainly at around 11 knots, after leaving Greece topping 20 knots.

    Am wondering if the BF 'conversion' is being carried out in Greece, as she hasn't moved from Patras yet - the clock is ticking!

    Asterion going North up the Ionian Sea for her last voyage to Venice - it's been mentioned she comes complete with a Greek crew - with Anek thy get 'home' weekly, wonder how many will stick the Bay of Biscay route for the charter duration?

    Pet Travel on the rise

    Got to be a poop deck joke in this!

    Pet Travel on the rise

    We had two cats at one time - never crossed my mind to take them on holiday - I just can't imagine they would have enjoyed a ferry experience?

    Predictions correct as usual - moving out of dock now, assisted by tug Clairvoyant

    Fleet Finder

    Sort of resolved - soon as you use the +/- zoom, the shipping magically appears!
