  1. The nearest butter that we have found to the Beurre D'Isigny is Brittany butter from M & S. Spread that on your bread and imagine that you are at Sea!
  2. We travelled on the PA to Santander last August and reserved a table at the Commodore Desk on check-in. When we went to dinner there was a long queue and were told to join it and wait as were others who had booked. We weren't very happy to do this and went forward to the entrance. Luckily I spied a waiter who I recognised and he told us to come through. Does anyone know what the correct procedure is if you have reserved a table? Should they have a second queue for those that have booked?

    Pont Aven Commodore

    The only problem that we found with 8401 was in the morning there was a lot of water spraying down off the upper deck where they were washing down the pet area. Otherwise it is a great cabin and balcony. you can also use the Commodore lounge with free tea and coffee.
  4. Just looked to amend a booking and this comes up :- Future Bookings Amend an Existing Booking Amend or view your booking online. Please select the item from the following list. There are currently no existing bookings I hope that the whole system has not crashed????
  5. I have always booked ASA the itineraries come out so as to get the best cabins. The £40 did not seem to much of a deposit especially as there is no charge for amendments if dates have to change. 25% deposit is a different matter but I wonder whether it may stop a lot of block bookings and therefore make it easier to book nearer the time?
  6. Thank you for all your advice. I will certainly try this in August when we travel.
  7. For the last two years we have been stuck in traffic in Plymouth once through the lengthy passport control. Can someone please give us any tips for a alternative route to and from the Ferry.
  8. I agree, but wait until after they have gone. It is a different world!
  9. Mont St Michel has to be the winner as the most magical place in Northern France. Pont Aven next.
  10. We were in 8411 from Santander to Plymouth and experienced the same water spray at about 7 - 8 a.m. I did not think about the fact that it may have been dog wash off - Luckily!!! I shall certainly watch out for this on future trips.
  11. We parked up in the port and then shopped in a local small supermarket which had all the cheese and ham that we needed. We also enjoyed a lovely meal before wandering back to catch the ferry. There are at least two supermarkets close to the ferry.
  12. The Commodore lounge on the Pont Aven is a lovely oasis of calm, but just a shame that the crew do not replenish the coffee or clean up the cups. If they looked after it a little more I am sure that more would use it.
