  1. Hello, We were also on Pont Aven this morning. We had booked Commodore Cabin 8402, and the lovely Steward offered us the usual Continental a la cabine, or, joy of joys, in Le Flora. We took up the offer and upgraded to the 'Vitality' option (Full English) for the princely sum of £6.60 for the three of us. What a lovely surprise! Wortley, it was a foggy crossing complete with fog horn sounding, and at times quite bumpy. I was a little late with the issuing of Stugeron for my youngest Son, I had to leave breakfast, to get them from the cabin, whoops!!
  2. Prince de Bretagne or Cornouailles? Think it is the former.
  3. I sailed on the Duchesse Anne's maiden voyage from Portsmouth to St Malo, on the 14th February 1989. She was quite stable on that rough crossing, and seemed quite flash, all chrome and neon signs. The cabins under the car deck, however were not pleasant and seemed to be original B&i vintage. Preferred the Prince of Brittany though, such a classic ship.
  4. Armorique in Plymouth this afternoon, awaiting her 22.00 departure to Roscoff.
  5. Boudicca, last Christmas Eve. She was supposed to call at Falmouth, but went to Plymouth instead.
  6. Before computer systems, we used to look up the vehicle dimensions in a booklet thoughtfully provided by another ferry company - the Townsend Thoresen Guide to Vehicle Lengths.
  7. Ship from Weymouth to Cherbourg was the Maid of Kent, she operated on that route until 1981. She was powered by steam turbines and a real classic, although her car decks were not freight friendly. Had you crossed with Brittany Ferries, you would have travelled on Cornouailles, Penn ar Bed, Prince of Brittany or Armorique.
  8. Intrigued where these photos were taken. From the height I guess it must be from the Holiday Inn, but can't recall the railings. Were you on the roof above the restaurant?

  10. As a Feock boy, born in Plymouth, this Video on Vimeo was fascinating for its comparison between King Harry and Britany Ferries!
  11. Eurocamp have no allocations, it is just a regular BF booking with a usual BF booking booking reference, albeit at preferential ITX rates. Ring Eurocamp for the ferry reference and try speaking to BF direct with that information, if the cabin needs changing.
  12. Barbican Pasta Bar on the Barbican, Southside Street for Dinner. Cap'n Jaspers for breakfast rather than the Jury's Inn offerings. Both are the choice eateries of Janners. Parking at Jury's can be a flipping nightmare!!
  13. Whenever I travelled on the Cornouailles from Plymouth, she was always berthed stern in. I have seen the old linkspan used as a pontoon for cruise ship tenders on occasion.
  14. Cornouailles on the original linkspan which is still in situ, but unused. The old terminal was used as office space by Brittany Ferries, anyone know if this is still the case?
  15. Pont Aven's Comodores put many cruise ship balcony cabins to shame, let alone the Bretagne's. They are bigger than the standard balcony cabins on the Queen Mary 2!
