  1. Okay folks, So I decided to rebook my trip from June to September which was easy enough to do on the standard ticket. At least there was still a Club Plus cabin on the Armorique for our sailing out. Would loved to have gone across in June but the situation is just too fluid at the moment. Maybe a trip to Devon/Cornwall will suffice in June. Regards, Mark.
  2. So with Macron's announcement yesterday I would anticipate that trips to France in early Summer are as good as dead in the water. We had the last 2 weeks in June booked for the Armorique from Plymouth to Roscoff. This was a delayed booking from the same time last year. Do you think BF will honour a refund or will we have the option to rebook for later in the year (My preferred option if we can't go in June) ? Kind regards, Mark.
  3. I think the government have to extrapolate the data of hospitalisations versus vaccinations and give the industry a rough timeline. Otherwise it's game over. One summer written off is survivable for the leisure industry, two is not. I worry what we have left is mission creep with no credible exit strategy. If the vaccines are all that they have been touted to be then giving a rough timeline to unlock should not be a problem.
  4. What is it about the PA the makes her such an awful sea farer? - Are there technical compromises which causes its problems. Cost surely can't be one of them?
  5. Recently I have tended to sail on the Armorique when travelling to Brittany in the last 3-4 years. I don't think she is great. In the 8 or so journeys I would say all but one she just rolls in fairly calm waters. The brick like structure is definitely a compromise and balance from front to aft can't be very good. The worst I have sailed in was without doubt the Quiberon. Filled a fair few 'sac Mal de mer's' on her. I have enduring memories of people spewing on the cabin decks on route back to their cabin. I would completely agree with Bretagne - smooth as silk. The Barfleur is my favourite though - smoothes out rough seas and doesn't have a tendency to roll like the Pont.
  6. Hi All, As fellow enthusiasts I would like to know your thoughts and opinions on the current fleet and how you think they are as sea keepers. What do you feel are the characteristics of each vessel? I've been travelling with BF en route to France since I was a toddler so have experienced a lot of the fleet. I would be very interested to hear your experiences. Kind regards, Mark.
