Re: Your favourite BF ship
My favourite of the current fleet is the MSM. I find her the quietest and most comfortable of the lot and also an excellent sea keeper. In close second would be the Normandie which I also find excellent but just a little noisier than the MSM.
Of ships past, of course the Val was amazing and seeing it now as the King Seaways (am I the only person who thinks it's a stupid name) still makes me wonder why it wasn't kept, it was superb on the Plymouth routes or St Malo and probably the most versatile ship in the fleet and at the time a real gear change that set the standards we see now.
I've never been fond of the Bretagne (ducks ;-) nor the Duc which I think was because my first crossing on the Duc was in the most awful weather, we started out thinking we would die ten minutes after leaving Portsmouth and after a further ten minutes were worried we wouldn't! Ouistraham is always a welcome sight but never more than that day.
