  1. It’s a great video - and ahead of its time , long before Discovery Channel and Mighty Ships! Had mine converted to dvd.
  2. Looks like the Spanish feel of the e-flexors is being trialled: Tomorrow’s cuisine today Over the coming months, we invite you to embark with us for some Spanish style festivities during your cruise onboard Pont-Aven. Brittany Ferries has joined forces with one of the finest Spanish chefs to bring you new culinary specialities straight out of Spain. Carlos Zamöra will give your a taster of Hispanic delicacies, with an exclusive menu including tapas, olive assortments, Iberian charcuterie platters and more. And because your opinion matters greatly to us, we hope that after tasting these new dishes you will tell us what you think. Ready? ¡Buen povecho!
  3. They are the internal port codes, which appear on your car boarding hanger, but it’s unusual for them to appear elsewhere: P - Portsmouth L - Poole Y - Plymouth O - Ouistreham H - Cherbourg M - St Malo R - Roscoff A - Le Havre C - Cork S - Santander B - Bilbao
  4. The young lady is now sporting the BF logo (with thanks to BF) 😎 More photos over on destinationhonfleur.com
  5. The first autumnal storm approaches:
  6. A first for me last night - the evening arrival (20:10) of the Armorique into Plymouth was delayed due to a trawler having broken down on the berth. As the breakwater approached the Armorique did a 180’ turn and headed back out to sea. After about 20 minutes we were advised that we were being held due to heavy port congestion (after I had initially enquired at reception and was told it was due to submarine traffic!) but a glance at Marine Traffic revealed a trawler was on the berth, with an MOD tug in attendance. An apologetic SMS received from BF also confirmed this. A further hour past before the trawler was moved - and only then did we head into the harbour, arriving an hour late. Still, it meant I got to watch all of Strictly! Bizarrely it appears that the trawler is back on the berth again today - fingers crossed it’s moved in good time for the Pont.

    Roscoff hotel

    I also got caught up in the festivities in Roscoff yesterday - never seen the place so busy! Even the usual backup option of parking at the SNCF station didn’t work. In the end I found a spot beside the footpath outside of le Triton. From memory the hotels in Roscoff that have parking are le Brittany and le Triton. The former Talabardon (now Mercure) had secure chargeable parking on the adjacent road.
  8. Yes, that’s correct. it appeared that additional busses have been hired whilst the gangway is out of service to help minimise delays.
  9. It’s the French equivalent of the Hotel Manager / Ships Purser.
  10. For the benefit of those travelling on foot to St Malo, note that the gangway is currently being refurbished and is unavailable for use. Allow extra time for disembarkation via deck 3.
  11. Latest update over on ‘Destination Honfleur’ reports on an LNG bunkering trial conducted in Ouistreham, with the help of the Mont St Michel. click here
  12. Connemara’s back on schedule, and is currently enroute to Roscoff. 👍
  13. With an electric vehicle soon to join our household I now find myself taking note of charging points whenever I’m out and about. As demand is clearly going to grow rapidly I thought it would be an idea to start a thread where we can share details of charging locations which are in close proximity to the ports BF operates from. So for starters... Plymouth - As far as I’m aware Plymouth is currently the only port that has charging facilities at the port itself. St Malo - Car Park 4, Esplanade de la Bourse opposite the Compagnie Corsaire jetty has two points, both type 1 and 2. These are part of EFFIA network.
  14. Although the new UK BF website is much more integrated than the previous version your probably better off keeping an eye on the Irish site for the latest news in the Cork routes (https://www.brittanyferries.ie)
