  1. We have spent three holidays in Josselin and can recommend a stop in the town. There are several good restaurants in the main square and the parking is ok.
  2. It is about a mile but it crosses a main road. I would have thought that the cruise company would have a shuttle bus or more, BF certainly did.. There is a tiny terminal building. Make sure you enjoy the sail up the Seine, it is magic in winter.
  3. We were on one Xmas trip when there were about 1100 on board and another with just over 800. I would imagine some where around 1200 would be the max ?????
  4. A very good idea which, I hope succeeds. I would be interested to know what the current set menu prices are in Le Flora.
  5. W,tere is usually a quartet, pianist, comedian?, magician and a DJ/childrens entertainer which, in our experience have been of a good standard. Entertainment of one form or another goes from 10.00am to the early hours.
  6. I imagine that they are probably having some difficulty selling the trips. We always have a cabin on Deck 6 except for one on Deck 8 - never again as the return from Antwerp was rough with water, not spray, crashing against the 'window'. We do not spend much time in the cabin, it varies between Le Flora, bar, cinema, piano bar or Antwerp. Certainly there is the uncertainty but there has always been the serious security searches when returning to PA from the city. On a more serious note. We have no children or family so this is a way of having, to us, a good time doing what we want without the forced jollity that one might get in a hotel.
  7. That was announced several weeks ago. We have booked the Xmas trip already and in the cabin that we requested. This will be fourth time that we have been to Antwerp, mostly with BF at Xmas, as it is a really good place to go,.
  8. I think that another 10m on the bow would give it a much sleeker look.
  9. Thanks for that info Gareth. I shall look on Google and see if I can see it we approach the city.
  10. Could prove diificult in Antwerp - no linkspan. Even if they could extract it.
  11. Come and go as you please subject to times etc. I think on Xmas Day one must be back on-board by 11.00pm and on Boxing Day 6.00pm as it sails at 8.300pm. It is upto you to be back on-time with obvious consequences if your are not back. As said above entertainment on all the time.
  12. A very good summary Jonno of that company
  13. One year we were the first on to PA and unquestionably the last off. Mainly because we had been parked in a corner and we were 'forgotten'. We drove around until we found a downward ramp and were greeted with surprised looks from the crew.
  14. I am 100% with you on this one.
