  1. Thanks for that, one of its sister ships is the Marco Polo built in 1965. Now sadly alongside in Avonmouth facing an uncertain future.
  2. Doesnt really matter, their employers will know where they`ve been and demand they do. Thats just as effective
  3. Online Telegraph reporting that the Government have taken France off the Quarantine green list and as from 4am on Sunday all arrivals back into the UK will be required to Quarantine..Wonder how that will affect sailings as I imagine there will be a rush to bring forward crossings to return and pretty much stop all non essential travel to France..I`m sure they will have planned for it though
  4. Aah Pelforth..truly the drink of the Gods..and I've destroyed my stock too but I agree Brooklyn is a good substitute
  5. The only certainty we have in life is death. It would be madness and a waste of that life to worry about what may or may not be round the next corner..enjoy life and embrace it to the fullest extent.... My motto anyway
  6. We have completely given up on France this year and were in possession of a RCN. Then got an e mail saying if we booked before 31st July we would get an extra 20% off as well as the RCN..So duly did and the software failed to allocate the discount. I e mailed,as live chat doesnt seem to work, and after a week no reply. So I rang and glad I did. I got through to a lovely lady whose attitude and helpfulness was well up to the standard we have come to expect from BF staff. She immediately discounted the amount owing by nearly ยฃ70 and changed the outward cabin on the Bretagne to one we preferred. The return on the Mont is a Commodore overlooking the bow and we aint changing that!! I suppose they are getting some grief but it is reassuring that some things are still there within the Company and its a certain something that they can build on..All is not lost thankfully....All we have to do now is wait a year๐Ÿ˜ญ
  7. God loves a trier๐Ÿ˜‚
  8. Is this some sort of a dream that never came true before you met Cabin Girl ?
  9. Hmm a bit beyond even crystal ball gazing there I`m afraid.
  10. You got to ask yourself that timeless question..Now do I feel lucky? ๐Ÿ˜‚
  11. There is no good reason not to return them immediately to France. A safe country indeed for them.What is lacking is a political will to enforce the rules.
  12. The problem is one of how much credibility the Government has in its proclaimations. Our media have decided that spreading fear and panic is the way to go and have done so with gusto, making some people terrified beyond the reality of it all, which is unforgiveable. European media have been much more sensible, accurate and have avoided hysteria (Piers Morgan for one). This weeks Northern lockdown, its now emerging, was based on an increase of 14 yes 14 new cases out of 112,000 tested. Its supposed to be so bad that you can have any number of tradesman round the house, that you don`t know, go to the pub every night ditto restaurants both with no masks but your parents/kids/grandkids are banned both inside and out. Is it any wonder people take no notice..Then comes `lockdown fatigue` people simply will only tolerate it for so long.It might be the correct way but its just not going to happen. Sure if it hadnt been so hot it might have been different but there is a reality here that we must all face, accept and deal with personally. I can`t see any change in attitudes until the bad weather arrives. Just my views of course
  13. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜
  14. So once again your timing was poor ๐Ÿ˜‚
