    SAILING UPDATES: 2018 Latest News

    Putin the man with the world beating aircraft carries who has to have tugs and numerous other ships just to keep her going at a sedate speed.the Russian aircraft carrier is also bigger so a bigger target then QE is with all of the black smoke coming out of her you don't need radar to see where she is.i know which carrier I would rather be on target or no target I would take my chances on the QE carrier than that old rust bucket.

    Cap Finistere 2 nighter

    The only problem with the early arrival into bilbo is a you have a dog,it is a struggle to have enough time to eat it before you have to take pets down to the car deck.a earlier breakfast time would be better for us pet owners.

    Cap Finistere 2 nighter

    I think the cap is the best ferry in the fleet when it comes to winter crossings and it is best for us with having a dog with us.just another point,I know the cap does a change over at roscoff on Mondays but why I ask?or am missing something?the other ferries on the Spanish sailings don't so why does the cap do it for?ps when we sailed from Portsmouth to bilbao 11 November we did not have to leave the dog In the car until called down. on all of our crossings on her before we have had to leave the dog in the car until called for and go to reception then down to car deck to pick the dog up.i hope this is going to be the norm because it is much better system this way.

    New Look Revealed

    It might just be me but I don't really care about new logo on the bf ferries.has long as the ferries are safe and clean and that about sums it up for me.

    New Terminal for Santander

    I know the bibao ferry port is a nightmare to be at any length of time.stuck in the middle of nowhere.no outlook at all apart from tipper trucks tearing along the port road ,then when it rains it makes the place better still,mind you can always pop into the so called bar and cafe which are nothing more than a couple of porta cabins bolted together.just hope the new place in santander will be a lot better than that place.gareth had a point why have two ferry ports that close together I would of thought one ferry port could handle the traffic with no problems at all.

    New Terminal for Santander

    Most people on ferries are not mini cruise passengers,so in my mind most people will like the idea of pulling out of the port and onto the motorway system.for first timers it can be a bit of a nerve racking experience with all of the bends etc before you get onto the main routes.so to me it sounds good but I know including me who like to wander around santander to kill a few hours.i have now travelled on this route 20/30 times and are used to the roads around santander.in the long run it is better for all moving the ferry port away from the busy centre.

    Baie de Seine

    In rough seas the cf is the best in the bf fleet,has for the open decks on bds I find it hard to believe a motor home or any other vehicle could be blown overboard.the side of bds are high and to me this would prevent this from happening.i was on the cap Sunday night or should I say early hours of Monday (2-15am)it was lumpy all the way to roscoff but it calmed down and we arrived in bilbao on time.

    SAILING UPDATES: 2018 Latest News

    We are on the cap or should I say early tomorrow morning,,just pleased it is sailing and not cancelled.no need to leave home to later in the day.it does not say what time it is going to sail but we can live with that.it must have been very rough over the past few days in the biscay for the cap to be running this late.always found the best in the fleet for rough crossings,

    That was my thinking,if the weather improves she may be able to catch a little bit but not 2/4 hours.just wonder when she does leave Portsmouth whatever time it is going to be ,she will miss out her crew change over in roscoff to catch up all the lost time.
