  1. A couple of pics of the Burgundy laid up at Leith, Edinburgh. Looking in a sorry state- will she ever return to service?
  2. I have been checking out he Poole - Cherbourg timetable for a trip in April 2020 and there are no sailings between 22 and 30 April. I suspect there must be an obvious reason for this and I've missed it. I cant see Barfleur on any other timetable.
  3. Geezer, if you want McD there is one at the junction of the N175 and D973 at Avranches. Plenty of parking and easy on and off the N175. It takes about 90 minutes from Cherbourg via the N13 to Carentan then N174 and A84 / N175.

  5. Anyone had a try at booking Poole - Cherbourg beyond 21 April 2020. No dates are showing after that. I've tried Portsmouth - Caen for 19th outbound and 26th April return and its telling me the booking cannot be made on line. Is it me, the computer or a generic thing. Ps A great reply for the tweet https://twitter.com/BrittanyFerries/status/1185205133954764802?s=20 😊👍
  6. We were in the Loire, Charente, Limousin areas a couple of weeks back and clear enforcement taking place by Gendarmes on N and some D roads. Clearly some drivers believe there must be exemptions available (French and GB registered vehicles) !!
  7. As BF have taken a lot of flack of late over the Pont saga I thought I would just add a little voyage / trip report that might address some of the balance. Mrs D and I have just had our annual French motorcycle holiday which we booked (with the exception of just one night) with BF using the hotels from their data base. We have used the booking service previously for gites etc but this was a first for a motorcycle holiday having previously used the Eastern Channel routes which fitted in with our itinerary better. From the initial enquiries regarding availability of cross
  8. I do hope that they ensure that only those passengers that paid for the upgrade are the only ones to use it. When we used it last year it was more like a creche, similar comments when returning on Normandie. In fact a very nice couple who had reserved seats got in an argument with (I assume) the mother of some unruly children who were climbing all over the seats and making enough noise for a dozen children. She obviously hadn't paid the upgrade fare and her comment : if you dont like it go somewhere else Passengers just wandered in and out and selected whatever seats they wanted without a
  9. Thats brilliant and it really gets the message over
  10. I will try and get some passenger numbers or at least an idea of possible loading's on Saturday. Its been two years since we were last went on Barfleur so it will be good to get another trip done Coming back on Normandie in two weeks time so quite a comparison
  11. Apologies for the spelling, spell check let me down !!
  12. Apologies if this has been covered before, Ive trie seacrhing but cant find the answer Is Barfleur currently running on her full capacity or is it reduced. I can remember something about this when she returned from Dover a few years back We are outbound on Saturday next so heres hoping for some improved weather !! Thank you
  13. Just watched this weeks episode on I player. Well worth it. BF have come out of it well and what a well put together programme
  14. K2rockall - I queried the very same thing with MFL a few months ago (although I wasn't lucky enough to win a freebie !!!) I was told that in the unlikely event of this happening they would be able to transfer me as they also operate Eurotunnel !! We've booked with DFDS instead !!
