  1. Two additional Cork-Roscoff rotations showing up on the Freight timetables. Dep Cork: 2200 Friday and 0830 Sunday Dep Roscoff: 1800 Saturday 0030 early Monday morning Should help!
  2. I think the reason Armorique hasn't been moved to Cork this weekend (whilst she was the previous 3 weekends) is due to this weekend being a much busier time on Plymouth-Roscoff (Whitsun half-term starts).
  3. The Armorique was due to sail at 16.30 from Roscoff on Thursday and then spend the night at dock in Plymouth picking up the 08.00 Friday sailing. She is now doing an extra rotation from Roscoff at 08.30 Thursday returning from Plymouth at 15.00 and a Roscoff overnight at 23.00 ready for her Friday morning Plymouth departure. This suggests the Pont Aven will not be back for the 20.45 Thursday night Plymouth-Roscoff sailing. Interesting few months at Roscoff!
  4. Also Morrisons The Best Brittany Butter. Every chance it is the same product in different packaging!
  5. Although according to Brittany Ferries Freight timetables, only to Cherbourg and Le Havre. Seems the Roscoff (and St Malo) routes revert to the off season timetable for one week in mid May (Armorique 6 departures each way a week) then the 'shoulder' season timetable from late May (7 a week).
  6. Only because that's what people had been speculating and because the pricing structure hasn't appeared to change despite Normandie replacing Etretat. I never thought it would become economie although it did occur to me that they might have mothballed the restaurant, cinema, cafe and kiosque allowing them to reduce staff in a similar manner to Barfleur (which I know isn't economie but isn't far off facilities wise).
  7. I found this on the french website as a PDF brochure, showing Normandie will not be branded as economie.
  8. Barfleur did 4 sailings a day six days a week (one day with just 2) between 1992 and 2009... I see no reason why this couldn't happen again?
  9. Yes I think so too...the Quiberon and Duc used to do ten return sailings a week from Plymouth to Roscoff (compared to 7 now in low season) and the Val/Pont did two (rather than 1). I suspect the Pont could probably squeeze in three at high speed. Another option would be for Connemara to squeeze one rotation in between her Cork/Roscoff trip like the Duchesse Anne used to.

    New Look Revealed

    I think they've actually moved the deck stripe from deck 6 to deck 7. They've also removed the blue paint underneath the lifeboats. Interested to see the blue on the funnel - matches the artist impressions of the Honfleur! Never knew the history of the very strange first BF logo - always wondered what it represented!
  11. Thanks hhvferry these are fascinating!
  12. So it looks like the Duchesse Anne covered Roscoff sailings ex Roscoff W AM Ex Plymouth W PM Ex Roscoff W Eve Ex Plymouth Th AM Ex Roscoff Th PM Ex Plymouth Th Eve Ex Roscoff Fr Eve (shortly before Val arrives to go to Cork hence earlier than usual departure) Ex Plymouth Sat AM Ex Roscoff Sat PM Ex Plymouth Sat Eve (Val departs very early ex Roscoff Sun AM to allow Duchesse into berth and then off to Cork? I assume the Val covered the Sunday sailings as she usually did on Sundays in years after 1993)
  13. A few years ago someone very kindly scanned the brochures from 1990, 1991 and 1992. Does anyone have the brochure from 1993? I would love to see the timetables on the Roscoff route after the introduction of the Val and I think the Duchesse also ran alongside the Quiberon that year? Any help much appreciated!
  14. Hi again! Thank you for posting the early 90s brochures. Would love to see the 1993 94 and 95 ones. I know they take a long time to scan but even just the timetable pages would be great. Thank you to anyone who can help!
