  1. I will wait and see what the difference in price is between the three types of ticket. I don't think many people will want to pay over 100% or even 50% now, for a crossing in August 2020.
  2. Returning to the wi-fi, it was working OK out to Santander on 4th August.
  3. We deliberately arrived late last August for the PA Santander to Plymouth sailing and were at the back of the line. However when we went over the ramp there was a steward directing cars and luckily we were kept downhill and not up the ramp. But it was only luck as the car in front went up on the ramp. When we unloaded in Plymouth we were quickly off but with the delays of the customs office I don't think that it made much difference. My conclusion is that you shouldn't worry about what time to arrive at the port and just go with the flow, after all we are on holiday and not supposed to get stressed. We are looking forward to the Pont on Sunday and our annual trip to Spain wherever we are directed to park.

    I have just discovered that my Plymouth to Santander fare has reduced due to a decrease in the Cabin cost. They say that it will be refunded.
  5. I also referred to this in the thread "Club Voyage Members" as it is ridiculous that you have to queue even if you are booked in.
  6. That is why I rely on the Fleet finder page on this site. It is right up to date.

    We would only ever consider a 20 hour cruise to Spain in a Commodore Cabin with a balcony. Even if you do not sit outside, it is great to have the door open and the fresh air coming in. The Balcony also comes into its own on departing Plymouth and entering Santander. Breakfast outside looking out for dolphins is also lovely. I hope that our trip in August will be lovely and smooth ( and that PA is working OK!)
  9. Back working this morning thank goodness. I needed to upload some cash as I find it the best way to take money abroad and you can load some a bit at a time to suit the budget!
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  13. 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????
  14. 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?
  15. Thank you for all your advice. I will certainly try this in August when we travel.
