  1. This is the reference for the October deadline . I would of course be delighted if it was lifted earlier as I am suffering from cabin fever and can't wait to get to France again. https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/news/death-of-schengen-france-introduces-seven-month-long-border-controls-amid-coronavirus/
  2. Also Macron has said he wants the borders closed until the end of October, so if non-French nationals can't enter France will this affect date of resumption of service?😤
  3. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
  4. What about the water in the iced water machine on the Mont - although this was out of action last week?
  5. I hope she can encourage BF to introduce the provision of 'tap' water on all vessels instead of forcing passengers to buy plastic bottles. I used the bamboo cutlery the other day on the Normandie and it was great.
  6. Yes it is great to see her looking so good and still working. Yes I have lots of happy memories of trips on her too. I noticed when I was in Ouistreham tourist office the other day -which has also had a refurb - they had some lovely postcards which were of a painting of her in the port by Jean Marc Mouchel,
  7. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to All. 🎅
  8. also piracy relates to the high seas and they were in British territorial waters I think when the incident occured.
  9. I was surprised by that, surely they should be charged with piracy?
  10. I was at Ouistreham a few weeks ago in the afternoon on my way back to the UK and a large group were on the beach and then they walked back to the port when the ship came in. This is the first time I have seen them on the beach in such large numbers and I did feel nervous walking back to the ferry along the path at the same time.
  11. Another factor to consider here is the suitability of the Etretat for dogs in cars. There were no pet-free cabins available on the Etretat and it was 25 degrees on deck 3 at 5pm last night. It was necessary to leave all windows and tailgate open but a visit mid crossing showed it had only dropped to 23 and dog was still panting so was a real worry . Of course by time aware of this too late too leave ship but would recommend avoiding leaving dogs in cars on this ship.
  12. I thought it was 120 hours before arrival in the UK according to BF advice. Happily our dog is now going to leave from le Havre today so should be within the limt.
  13. yes my other half is booked on it with out dog and i am worried now about getting them home within the time frame of the tapeworm treatment - dog owners will know what i am talking about,
  14. They've just cancelled the Monts 1400 sailing.
  15. This is the link to BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-europe-45257005/migrant-crisis-i-climb-into-lorries-three-times-a-day
