  1. Thanks Andy. I will use her for the first time around Easter. Very much looking forward to this trip between cherbourg and Dublin. I will report in due course
  2. I think I will opt for the a la Carte. I prefer quiet surroundings for my meals.
  3. So if I understand correctly, disembarkation will start an hour after the advertised arrival time?
  4. As usual with work, plan changes all the time. I will now be sailing from Hook of Holland to Harwich next week instead of sailing to Hull. I am booked on the Stena Hollandica overnighter. I would be grateful for any tips. My ticket says that boarding will start at 7pm. What time should I check in?
  5. Thansk for the advice. I will opt for the Rotterdam Hull option with a standard package. It includes a premier outside 2 berth cabin. The cabin prices are higher than with BF by quite a margin. For example, a 2 berth inside is £98.00 with P&O instead of £43.00 with BF.
  6. Thanks for your replies. My appointment in Manchester is set for 11am so this should give me plenty of time. I think I will opt for the Rotterdam option.
  7. I am travelling to the Antwerp area via Dover-Dunkirk for work next week. This will be followed by another work related visit near Manchester. I thought I could cut the driving time by using one of P&Os routes to Hull. I have never been on any of these crossings and I would like some tips. Which is the best option? Sailing from Rotterdam or Zeebrugge? What time boarding starts? Is it worth opting for the packages advertised on the website? Thanks
  8. I was Armorique crossing to Caen last night with a club plus cabin on deck 9. It was quite bouncy at times with a few items falling off the table (and inside the fridge) but the crossing was much calmer once sheltered by the Cotentin peninsula. Had to go for this crossing because of the lack of alternatives but the very early arrival on the Sunday morning was not a pleasant experience
  9. One off call in Roscoff by W. B. Yeats ?
  10. Interesting pic. I can't remember the name of this type of rudder. I read about it a couple of years ago and I remember it has been developed to increase efficiency by eliminating the turbulences behind the hub of the propeller.
  11. I booked a Cherbourg Dublin return for mid April. I only booked a 2 berth outside cabin each way. The total cost exceeds 420 euros. I hope it will be as enjoyable as sailing with Oscar Wilde. No signs of Roscoff Rosslare sailings yet in the booking engine. It will be interesting to see if they can keep up with the current timetable all year round. If not they may schedule a few sailings to Roscoff to save time.
  12. A few pics of Pont Aven taken today from Alet.
  13. Thanks for the tip. She uses Tanganil and it works quite well. The alternative was to travel Portsmouth to St Malo on the 9hrs day crossing but it can be a long excruciating trip for those suffering from sea sickness
  14. Booked on Ply-Ros 23/12 overnighter with a club plus cabin. Hopefully it won't be to rough. I have got very good sea legs but my girlfriend gets seasick fairly rapidly.
  15. Nice pics. No disrespect but, could you please at least make a point of spelling Armorique correctly? As a born and bred Breton, it makes cringe to see "Armourique".... As if her name wasn't displayed in big enough letters on her side!
