  1. Agreed - would be much better to have separated private space I think!
  2. She travelled to Roscoff and back every day, but only had about 1/3rd capacity I believe because she didn't have enough lifeboats for full cover at that time. Was great to see her here!
  3. That would be great for BF presumably? Mop up some short-sea traffic?
  4. What are the proportions of unaccompanied like on Dover-Calais? I presume as the reasons Gareth has mentioned, that they are pretty low due to the rapid turnaround times required?
  5. Ben Cocks original was so much better, written for BF. > https://www.tvadmusic.co.uk/2013/01/brittany-ferries-curiosity-can-lead-you-anywhere/
  6. First post in 2021? Happy new year everyone
  7. Many fireworks here around 2300, for the Brexit.com I presume !
  8. I am willing to bet that more than a couple of us have smuggled a chocolate mouse off the ship before, including white dish. 😉 Anyway, happy brexit minute. And here's to a new era, and the commencement of normality in some way again soon, and mini cruises coming back, and getting to visit Chris and his fine whines again soon 👍
  9. Omg! The chocolate mouses! That's more like it, made up for the whole year that has, thank you! 👍
  10. There seems to be a distinct lack of posts too! Antrwerp! There were some lovely shots of Antrwerp and Honfluer, I'm sure we didn't see them all 😉😉
  11. Seeing there is a distinct lack of opportunities this year; I thought perhaps as a cheery reminder of how good things can be, (and quite often are), that people may like to post/repost their "Best Of..." pictures from NYE special sailings, cruises/mini-cruises from years gone past throughout the rest of today...?!

    Drakes Island

    Not being funny, but as we speak the flag has disappeared again. PGTV; you're not the flag controller are you!?

    Drakes Island

    It's a Union Flag... looks ridiculous upside down, just like the French and Japanese 😉

    Drakes Island

    Pleased to say - Flag is STILL up and flying on Drakes Island for anyone who is hanging on tenterhooks about this topic...
  15. Great to see such a positive cabin review btw, despite lack of WiFi If anything it adds to your review of the experience. I have never travelled in a Commodore myself, despite hundreds of trips on different ships. Perhaps one day:)
  16. Did you notice the Internet speed at all being any different to the rest of the fleet? Is there the free Wi-Fi level service in ALL areas including cabins now? Presumably you can still upgrade, but I wonder if the speed was more usable that Pont for example. I suppose during Covid times, the shear drop in numbers will have improved it somewhat....
  17. Not a fan then! 😮 I have spent more time on her than any other ship, by a long stretch, so as I said, I've learnt to love her
  18. I agree but I've learnt to expect and love it haha
  19. What is the sense of space like wandering round on Gal? On Pont Aven, you (well, I), can happily spend hours wandering round without getting bored. There is plenty of outside and inside space, and things to explore. Cap on the other hand I find far more limited. She simply doesn't feel as big. I wonder what Gal was like in comparison, seeing she's a similar GRT to Pont, but obviously very different configuration!
  20. Although both Barfy and Normandie tend to plough generally much calmer waters...!
  21. Pont Aven corkscrews in a millpond. It's one of her most endearing features
  22. It was... it was basically the same rate that Club Voyage members got - without having to be a member. Plus you got to flash around a bank card with a freckin Ferry on it! To my knowledge though; no cards were produced with the new branding on. My last one issued was a very old Normandie shot, 2 iterations of livery back... even before the re-branding!
