  1. This impression is not helped by customers heading into the Brittany Ferries office in cork on Friday morning to query what they could do about their canceled crossing only to find the office closed for “staff training”. It should be noted they did the same during the Pont Avens problems.
  2. We were talking to passengers on the Pont on Saturday who had been “accommodated” (and compensated for the drive down through France) due to Friday’s canceled crossing to Santander, the common assumption was that there was no technical issue just not enough passengers to make the trip worthwhile. I’ve heard of Ryanair canceling flights for this reason, would a ferry company do this??
  3. It’s funny you should say that, my wife suggested that might be the real reason!
  4. Docked in Roscoff this morning on Pont Aven, 30 min delay disembarking due to “problems opening the bow door”. Not the first time she’s had this problem either!
  5. Also why cancel Spanish crossings but not the two French midweek?
  6. Heading out to France today on the Pont,and due to return on the Connemara Tuesday. What are the chances my second trip to France this year has another cancelled crossing!

    Hotel Kyriad

    Booked here for September trip. Hope it’s still good!
  9. Glad you enjoyed your trip after all the worrying in the buildup! Always found the Pont to be a bit “uncomfortable” in less then perfect seas!
  10. There is a cafe across the road from the port in Ringakiddy called Perry Street. They do great food I’m sure they would organize a packed lunch for you as well!

    Short Break

    Myself and Mrs. Shar^k have booked a short break to France in September. Out of Cork on the Pont on the 14 returning to Cork on the 17 on the Connemara. Main purpose is she would like to visit Mont Saint Michel again. So we are saying there the first night and Roscoff for the second night. Is there any other place worth visiting between Roscoff and Mont Saint Michel?
  13. Enjoy your trip Geezer
  14. Great comparison, I always enjoyed traveling to France on the OW. Always found her to be a very pleasant trip, interesting to hear that some of the crew miss her. Also interesting that they could end up back in Rosslare!
  15. Crew were in good form. No problems on that front. That being said it was a much quieter sailing then I imagine was originally booked so it probably wasn’t the hardest shift they will put in this year. It was probably only half full I reckon. The same sailing last year was almost full. It would seem a lot of people were not taking the chance that she would be back and arranged alternatives. I did notice a number of the crew deep in conversation like they hadn’t been talking for a while. And some other crew were being trained and shown muster stations during the crossing, new starts I presume.
