    HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    I believe that it is early December. 93 working days from keel laying on August 4th https://www.destinationhonfleur.com/en/news/how-do-you-build-hull-q

    HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    It cruised for about 8 hours so must be a bit slow, however it seems to have gone to Fayard Docks in Lindoe which is a dry dock & I suspect that there is a slight chance this is drifting off topic.

    General Discussions on Brexit

    No point, it was said at the beginning that the EU only properly negotiate near to the deadline & that is proving the case.

    HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    Honfleur looks to be going to plan at the moment and I am sure that it will be launched on time in December - this seems to be the bit that FSG do well. I note that the Alf Pollack has left now (on schedule) - it moved to another pier last week and yesterday sailed to Denmark. The next ship has taken it's place on the pier having had the top added. I just hope that FSG now know how to make cruise ferries with all of the fancy cabins and essential safety electrics.

    SAILING UPDATES: 2018 Latest News

    Does anyone understand why BF cancel the Poole Cherbourg crossings due to the weather and not the St Malo crossing, is it due to the ship or port ?

    Yes MSM seems ok today which is excellent news, they are also running an extra return crossing from Le Havre, however it only seemed to be Lorries at Le Havre this morning.

    I think that they are about to cancel the MSM tomorrow as well. I am on the Etretat tonight which docks at 8.30:and have just been told it will dock at 7, just in time for an extra return journey !

    BF are not doing themselves any favours by being too optimistic and cancelling at the last moment, the disruption on passengers is high. Unfortunately this also means the overnight Portsmouth to Caen has been cancelled as well.

    Brittany Ferries BETA site

    It is also far too easy to accidentally select a pet or handicap cabin as they often appear first.

    Brittany Ferries BETA site

    Millard has stated the original IT definition, however as a lot of people have moved to Agile development which means you don't specify the software before you write it you can end up in permanent Beta mode. A number of UK government websites are permanent Beta websites !

    BF Confirm Charter of 'E-Flexer'

    I imagine there is a reasonable overlap between builds, The NI site has some nice pictures of the second eflexer being built. https://www.niferry.co.uk/keel-laid-second-stena-e-flexer/

    The papers just say that it was a small electrical fire that the crew managed to put out before the fire brigade arrived, however the problem is likely to be replacing the components that went up in flames. https://www.ouest-france.fr/normandie/caen-14000/ouistreham-debut-d-incendie-le-ferry-mont-saint-michel-reste-quai-6006715

    Brittany Ferries BETA site

    Millard, I have spent some time playing on the beta site, generally I am ok with it, as said before I prefer the new way of date selection, however the cabin selection is awful. The current way of comparing available cabins is so much better - you may want to put a default filter of not showing the disabled and pet cabins and just have a further option that displays them Re the saved itineraries, I like that and do actually compare options normally before booking, however the price shown should be the total after Club Voyage / Etretat discounts and a save button should be on the pricing page. The link to the pricing page is confusing as it says enter passenger details, however it is really a link to the price. David
