  1. It wasn't too long ago when deck plans didn't show the individual cabin numbers! I recall around the time I joined this site the amount of topics in Q&A requesting the location of cabins and there would always be members able to give directions from reception/major stairwell!
  2. This photo shows two styles of cabin number, so there is no error. My assumption is that the additional cabins at the rear have the four digit cabin number but could very much be wrong.
  3. How do they calculate number of trucks? Is it maximum number ignoring cars and all mezzanines not in use? On Stena Estrid and Edda, there is a separate deck for cars. Galicia doesn't have this and in this video, you can see at 4:07, it appears Galicia will have a mezzanine vehicle deck (Deck 6). Perhaps it is fixed in place thus bringing down the total truck space? Total guesswork though!
  4. Are you sure? I’m sure that Mont St Michel‘s month at Gdańsk was cancelled due to reasons and she was laid up at Cherbourg for her repaint instead.
  5. Is it known whether Galicia will load over two levels in Portsmouth (obviously in Santander it will be single loading) or will, like Cap, be single loading in both ports? Which port will she dock bow-in? Or will she be stern-loading only (only ask considering Cap only docks stern in)?

    2021 Timetables

    It is a possibility, but it was discussed a few months ago that putting having an e-flexer would be a struggle to justify especially given reports suggesting that carryings weren't as expected and hence the whole port switching. I wonder if we would have seen Normandie at Rosslare had Honfleur been delivered?
  7. It looks like Restaurant Azul could be some sort of hybrid a la carte-self service because it has servery area still. It also looks like Taberna forms an 'overflow' to the Restaurant Azul during the summer. The virtual tour confirms the Taberna is in the location of the Truckers lounge. I would quite like to know if there is any difference in facility provision on the Cherbourg run because I am quite eager to do a day trip to Cherbourg on her.

    Well done Gareth. I mean your suggestion had more footing anyway. But it is important to note that when Salamanca arrives, these timings will change again. I like how next year the Spanish timetable has one ship dedicated to one route, it is definitely tidier! And there is a daily sailing (in the sense that there is an arrival/departure into/from Spain on every day of the week). If the Le Havre service has been dispensed with, it hints that Cap Finistere may be replacing Etretat at Rosslare when Salamanca arrives. Santona's role is more unknown, unless her purpose is to add f

    A further suggestion: whilst Cap Finistere visits Le Havre, Etretat could run to Spain. i.e. Cap Finistere departs Portsmouth for Bilbao on Wednesdays and Saturdays and leaves Bilbao for Portsmouth on Thursdays and Sundays. Operates Monday overnight to Le Havre and Tuesday overnight back to Portsmouth. Etretat departs Portsmouth for Bilbao on Mondays and leaves for Bilbao for Portsmouth on Tuesdays then serves Le Havre for the rest of the week. You'd have 3 sailings a week to Spain plus 5 sailings a week to Le Havre. Although, reading back through the thread, it does

    Okay well I am still not convinced let's just wait and see what Wednesday brings. I won't say too much more but... I still think, like others, they've staggered the release to take the pressure off. Barfleur, despite being off all summer, is resuming her normal schedule next year. I don't think we would have seen Bretagne back in service if what you predict is true.

    If there is a surprise/stinger/whatever, I really cannot see it concerning St Malo. I cannot see much change especially as it does similarly in numbers to Roscoff. They'd be foolish. At most they'll keep the Tuesday night return going through the summer season.
  12. Did a periodic check to see if we'd ever see the ship guide for Kerry and here we are!... https://www.brittany-ferries.ie/sites/default/files/2020-05/Kerry Ship Guide ENG-FR 21-11-19.pdf

    Oh sorry! The discussion regarding freight timetables was regarding the easier nature of viewing what was released on Wednesday - the same style as the old website. The Spanish timetables won't be available on any version of the website until next Wednesday.

    Well here is the Roscoff timetable on the freight website which shows to October 2021: https://www.brittanyferriesfreight.co.uk/ferry-routes/timetables/plymouth-roscoff

    I was thinking about the CF scenario you describe in the shower yesterday. How minds think alike on this website! It makes sense, but at the same time, it would only be for a year before Salamanca arrives (which like Galicia will only be able to do two sailings) so is it worth changing the days only to change the timetable again the following year? The greater capacity of Galicia should offset the need for CF's third sailing. I don't know, we'll see who is right next Wednesday! Let's hope the freight website isn't upgraded soon!
