  1. It's the foot passenger gangway that bothers me. It looks awful, it's a nightmare with heavy luggage (going up or down) and looks like it should have been removed twenty years ago.
  2. Lucky for me I'm going over to Ouistreham on the morning of the 7th.
  3. I'll grab one in the bar and one in the cafe then. That should last me the twelve days or so that I'm over there.
  4. Just a quick question about baccy and ciggies on sailings. Are cigarettes and tobacco still sold cheaper in the bars and cafes? And how much for a pouch or pack of smokes?
  5. Do we have any idea when the new one will open?

    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.
  7. 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.
  8. I'm more concerned about whether visas will be needed, personally.
  9. Which may be the reason Plymouth still has that awful gangway for foot passengers. Complain to either and they'll likely blame the other.
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Fine with me, as long as it runs smoothly.
