  1. Do we have any idea when the new one will open?
  2. Pilgrim

    New Premier Inn

    Edifice? Orifice, more like. Anyway, the Premier Inn beside Portsmouth and Southsea railway station is a nice enough place for a night as well.
  3. Yep, that would be the ETIAS form, valid for three years of multiple visits and costing only a few quid per form. Comes in in 2021 if I remember rightly.
  4. I'm more concerned about whether visas will be needed, personally.
  5. Which may be the reason Plymouth still has that awful gangway for foot passengers. Complain to either and they'll likely blame the other.
  6. Looks as though Ouistreham will be busy. http://www.normandy-travel-trade.com/menu/highlights/d-day-and-the-battle-of-normandy-17-2.html
  7. Looking at next year's timetables, I'm wondering whether or not choosing a Portsmouth-Caen sailing on June 6 is likely to be a nightmare with the anniversary. Would it be an easier option to pick another route, do people think?
  8. I don't know if anyone's noticed, but the 25% deposit is actually lower on cheaper bookings than the old £40 flat rate. So it's a little swings and roundabouts depending on what kind of booking you're after.
  9. Don't dislike the Armorique, personally, but don't really love it either. It's a workhorse that gets me where I need to go and it's perfectly good for that.
  10. I've never got the train to or from Roscoff. It's always been a bus service. That said, the bus ride is a very pretty journey.
  11. Fine with me, as long as it runs smoothly.
  12. Excellent. That will help a lot with next year's 20th anniversary trip to Le Mans.
  13. I thought the 2019 timetable was coming out in November.
  14. I've nothing against school parties, it's just that sometimes they're allowed to run riot. Not fun if you're trying to sleep on an overnight sailing to Le Mans, still with a train to catch when I dock. Particularly bad when I'm on an overnight return run tired, wet, cold, hungry and bummed out at facing another fifty weeks of work, bills etc.
  15. Is there any word yet on the precise date Honfleur enters service? I understand she's to replace Normandie on the Portsmouth-Caen run.
