    Menus

    Has the chocolate mousse been deleted from BFs menu range? On our last few trips none have been available.
  2. I also travelled on the Saturday St. Malo crossing. My e-ticket states "Inbound ...........24/02/2018 will occur between 1800 and 2030...". In reality, after the wait for the formal immigration checks and the confused loading of freight we were not onboard until 1845.

    Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    The M/V Etretat colour scheme is a hangover from M/V Voyager days, there is no reason that M/V Connemara should not be painted in a more traditional BF style.

    BF Confirm Charter of 'E-Flexer'

    The two Stena ships that provide the Harwich - Hoek van Hollande route have very smart, spacious cabins at competitive prices. They also offer self-service and waiter service restaurants. If these designs are carried over to the new boats then in my opinion they will be superior to the offering on Pont Aven.

    St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    Does anyone know if this dispute has been settled, or is the further possibility of instant disruption?

    1967 - Paddle Steamers for Sale

    P & A Campbells "Glen Usk" & "Glen Gower" ?
  7. Further to my post about June 19th, the Gendarmerie Marine were onboard the M/V Armorique at Plymouth. I found this surprising but not unwelcome!

    Security, what is your opinion.

    On my trip to Roscoff on June 19th the Port Security were checking every vehicle. In addition on boarding the ferry there were three Gendarmerie Marine on the ferry, two with sub-machine guns & one with a hand gun. This seemed an impressive shew of security. (In addition I agree the other security checks of identity; email - relates to IP home address, car registration - identifies owner and home address, telephone number - shews owner, bank account details - identifies owner and home address, passport - photo recognition of individual, are very very important).

    HMS Illustrious

    Is this because MOD have scrapped/ flogged off all the Fleet Air Arm aircraft?

The following dates are for the offers in the south coast papers:- October offer 6th - Daily Echo, Dorset Echo, Bridport News 8th - Daily Echo, Dorset Echo 13th - Daily Echo, Dorset Echo, Bridport News 15th - Daily Echo, Dorset Echo December offer 1st - Daily Echo, Dorset Echo, Bridport News 3rd - Daily Echo, Dorset Echo 8th - Daily Echo, Dorset Echo, Bridport News 10th - Daily Echo, Dorset Echo I think it is really sad that a bunch of cheap-skate chancers have resulted in BF withdrawing BFE offers for honest folk who abide by their terms.

    High Speed ferry Poole-Cherbourg

    HSC craft are more fuel thirsty, The fuel costs are a part of the operating cost but servicing the capital cost of the vessel and the crew costs must all be important factors in arriving at the overall operating costs. I would guess HSCs cost less than traditional mono hull ferries and from experience seem to need fewer staff.
