    New deposit price on bookings?

    I haven't commented on this so far.... but times change. BF have had a very low fixed deposit for years and years... but it's totally acceptable to pay 25% of the booking up front in my eyes, I honestly don't know what the fuss is. You are paying to reserve a service at a future date, and paying only a quarter of the cost to secure it in advance is good.

    In that video doesn't she just look EXACTLY like a big (pre-scrubber) Armorique!?

    New deposit price on bookings?

    A common complaint which comes up here is about the lack of Pet Friendly cabins when going to Spain. I wonder what BF has in mind in terms of proportion of pet friendly cabins:normal cabins on Galacia and the Salamanca! They will obveously want to increase capacity, but there will not be 600+ cabins like on PA. They will have to be careful to get the balance right so as not to alienate the non-petters among us but have substantially more than there are currently!

    Environmentally friendly???

    Jonno - you mention the acidity, but 'standard' rain has a pH of about 5.5 I believe, making it acidic?... despite the amplification due to industry or location

    BF funnel giving off white fumes = good. Arguably showing up operators who have not complied. There are always edge cases, but the point of the scrubbers is that there should basically be plenty of white (vapor) coming out when they are engaged.

    2018/2019 Xmas & New Year Cruises - Confirmed

    November... and probably about 2/3rds I would say. Still - 1 mile is not too bad!

    Stop being lazy:) I've walked about 10 miles on a Santander mini-cruise avec purchases! Also makes perfect sense if you think about what is happening next year... https://www.destinationhonfleur.com/en

    Normandie post-scrubber model

    Other than a rather generous 'stack' - I would say pretty accurate though?!
  10. Just wondered if anyone had noticed this - https://anticsonline.uk/N426/N1590/N2516_passenger-ferry-model-ships/105701959_.html One of the only post-scrubber models i've seen yet!

    Plastic cutlery

    Use your fingers! On the ORCA front - a whale is currently plowing up and down the Tamar, have a Whale spotting tour closer to home:) Additionally - I have nothing against trying to help the environment.... I would just rather not live through this transition phase. Having to queue up in McDonalds to ask the manager for a straw and feeling guilty for doing so, when until a few weeks ago they gave away just shy of 2 million every day in the UK without batting an eyelid.Nothing has changed, everyone knew plastics were not fantastic. Even if all plastic was banned worldwide overnight, it would take a generation to have any significant effect on a global scale. A small group of girl guides walking up and down Newquay beach on a Saturday morning with a grabber from Poundland really isn't going to have much of an impact...

    Perhaps more space? 2 x 3 berths - pointless. 3 x 2 berths logically would have to have more floor space.... so a family of 4 could spread out, with 3 having lower berths??

    BF have always been a bit stingey on the size of cabins IMHO. Even the Etretat 4 berth cabins are actually a little larger than the rest of the traditional BF fleet. Stena's Harwich ships always seem to have monsterous cabins i've noticed too...

    I agree - that's what I thought would work well too!
