  1. I'm just passing by. Not a chance we missed the ferry... my Father was the kind who had you at the airport 5 hours before a flight.
  2. There was always some disappointment as a child at the end of a holiday to drive into Ouistreham and see the stern side of the DDN's funnel on the horizon. Funny how times change, these days I'd much rather the DDN than the Normandie. They don't make 'em like they used to etc etc.

    Aye - it's been doing the rounds pretty much since she arrived.
  4. Technically Dover... though the third level there is for foot passengers and not vehicles. I suppose also some vessels (P&O Spirits, Ulysses, D-Class) are *almost* triple level, it's just that the ramp to the third level is fixed onboard the vessel.
  5. No - the system is online only. However, if you don't have the QR code available, Border Force should be able to look up your details.
  6. Not quite. As we understand it the event is very much to be geared towards a remote audience and designed to show off the ship to them with a tour and interviews with key staff. There won't be any breaking of a bottle on the hull or blessing of the ship though. Despite Covid, BF are determined to mark the occasion. Your choice of snack and beverage are at your own discretion, Ed. Perhaps pop an Orangina in the fridge for something cold and bubbly
  7. Thanks to Brittany Ferries for the heads up on this - a countdown website will appear next week!
  8. This was originally posted under 'Things to do in'... which it is not. Moved.

    Always best for these things to get the word from the horse's mouth... or website.
  10. It does matter though - if it didn't, there wouldn't be any differing views over the varying interpretations of it...
  11. What you posted alluded to input from a source, but without a direct quote or a clear representation it's not unreasonable for Chris to have the impression the subsequent comments were yours.
  12. I have a feeling, given Covid, that customers are going to be more aware of cleanliness in places/on transport etc etc. I took a short train journey yesterday during which they were at pains to announce details of the cleaning regime in use. It just makes me ask what they were doing before! I think I've mentioned it before - but British Airways have been trumpeting how clean their planes are etc... same company who before the pandemic were doing a trial of not cleaning their planes as often to save money...
  13. Were the prices reasonable? I ran a quote for a Spain crossing and thought the cabin prices were eye-watering for the Commodores.
  14. I'm intrigued to see how much scope for change there will be between Galicia and the subsequent e-Flexers for BF - and indeed the Stena vessels. It's a relatively rare opportunity for minor changes/improvements to iterations of the same design. Yes, you're not going to materially change the structure of the ship, but deciding to turn a sofa into a bed is entirely feasible. I'd look towards @tarbyonline to understand if there's already anything similar happening in Stena-land.
