    Pont Cabins

    Agree with all views above. When booking on website more information about the cabins can be seen by clicking on the arrow button beside the cabin type. By the way does Bretagne still have cabins on Deck 2?
  2. Some information on french strike action on cestlagreve.fr website
  3. If you have poor mobility and are in a car, you're likely to be up the ramp and parked on the open deck which is on the same level as reception and disabled cabins. OK not so good in bad weather
  4. Had text & emails fro BF Thursday afternoon to say Pont Aven sailing 1500 Friday (not 2030). Did some quick last minute shopping, and checked out of holiday accommodation early Friday. En route more info from BF to say now sailing even earlier and we did at 1400 French time from Roscoff. Not too bad a crossing as we ran ahead of the storm. A bit bumpy up until midnight, but docked in Ringaskiddy at 0230. We got a good night's sleep as embarkation didn't start until 0800. Home early. Didn't notice until later that those on IF Epsilon not so lucky. She sailed at 1630 Friday but anchored of Sidmouth until 0800 Saturday and not expected Dublin until 0800 on Sunday.
  5. Brittanyferries.ie website has whole timetables to view and print off, but only for Cork routes. One thought - don't reception desks onboard offer a pamphlet with Timetables for all Uk & Irish routes?
  6. A useful website for info on strikes in France is www.cestlagreve.fr There's also an app.
  7. Hope they sort all the bugs out before they take away the old version still on the “.ie” site
  8. Or bring back the string quartet from Oscar Wilde. Always wondered what we had to do if they started playing “Abide with Me”
  9. Wanting to add to Fine Whine's comments above but not wishing to take up space by quoting him. Another reason Irish folk are favouring the Roscoff route is that many of them holiday on France's west coast and Roscoff is so convenient.
  10. Website not available this morning. Keep getting message “403 Forbidden”. Are they doing maintenance or adding next year's sailings. Even going by the irish website (still the old format) I tried to pull up Sailing Updates but get same message.
  11. Not sure about this new boat. On the Website for MV Michela there's talk of three dormitories with 128 beds, not something the wife and I want to try.
  12. Does rule WBY out of doing Rosslare to Pembroke if ever Inishmore is out of service? We know WBY fits Rosslare as this was first Irish port she docked at before entering service.
  13. Not entirely true, as some of us would rather travel from Cork with BF, or better still from Rosslare with either Stena or whoever pinches IF old berth there. For those of us living in SE Ireland getting to Dublin Port involves two tolls (M50 and tunnel) and then the congestion at the port itself. Catching a ferry at Dublin is a bit like driving through Avonmouth.

    Cabin decks

    If I remember rightly Bretagne has some cabins on deck 2. Not very pleasant and the stairs are steep. Stayed there once, but after that always checked ticket when booking and if cabin number started with a 2 we rang up and got it changed.
  15. Reported on Irish Ferry Enfhusiasts website that all certification, crew briefing, etc is complete and Stena Europe is expected to resume normal duties middle of next week.
