    Former Coutances sinks

    Sad news today as the Rosa Eugenia (fondly remembered by many as the Coutances) reportedly started tanking on water yesterday and sank. She had been laid up in Venezuela for the past two years.

    Bretagne 31/08/2018

    I know what you mean, but I find the window useful for timing it just right for laying in just that little bit longer! That said a 2 berth outside is usually cheaper than a 4 berth inside cabin. They do sell out almost as quickly as Commodore Cabins mind!

    Bretagne 31/08/2018

    Always worth remembering that the 2 berth outside cabins on the Bretagne have two lower berths. As they are all at the forward end you also get a great view overlooking the bow from deck 8.

    Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    @des @ferrymancork Great pics guys! Thanks for sharing, its good to see another ferry using Cork after Fastnet closed down. The all white livery looks much smarter than that of the Etretat, just hope it holds out after a few months across the Bay.
  13. Just spotted the Cote d’Albatre heading up the channel having sailed up from Santander. Does anyone know what she’s been up to? 🙄
