  1. Sadly that is very likely to be the case. Rather than being hostile to immigrants, the government should be targeting the rogue landlords and employers who make millions from the illegal trafficking of some of the world's most vulnerable people.
  2. Wherever she's heading, Bretagne is in a hurry. 24.8 knots!

    Agreed. I think the prize for the longest serving ship on a UK-Spain service currently goes to Pride of Bilbao, which crossed the Bay twice a week from 1993 - 2010. She was 24 years old when P&O pulled out of Portsmouth.
  4. No daytrip offers either - i am hoping these will appear for autumn sailings once the summer peak is over.

    Cap Finistere is four years older than Pont Aven and there doesn't appear to be any imminent plan to retire her from sailngs to Spain. It is true that PA has served the route for far longer than any of her predecessors. but some of BF's former Santander ships (The original Armorique/ Quiberon/ Bretagne/ Val de Loire) have been assigned to new routes because of a need for increased capacity rather than necessarily being considered too old for Biscay crossings. Bretagne did quite a few sailings to Santander long after being replaced as the regular vessel for the route.

    Disappointing for Plymouth, but offset to some extent by the expected increase in seasonal sailings to Santander.
  7. Bretagne is on the move!
  8. Interesting that Honfleur is shown with the current fleet under the "Ships and Onboard" tab on the BF website, whereas the imminent Galicia doesn't get a mention!
  9. The only certainty is that this will cause further delays.
  10. Me too - not a fan of Armorique (although the cabins are good).
  11. She was custom-built for the Plymouth-Santander route - replacing Quiberon as the BF flagship in 1989.
  12. Ah yes -the legendary "Lamb Gargantuan" - we still talk about it now!
  13. Bretagne is on the move!
  14. Th Pont is newer than MSM!
