    Seaborne Freight contract

    Let the train take the strain, but I hope they will duck through Chunnel.

    King Seaways ORCA Wildlife Viewing Lounge

    I 'm sure DFDS will give an immedilate answer if you ring them or use live chat on their website.

    SAILING UPDATES: 2019 Latest News

    Is this the same Le Havre to which the company is planning to increase the number of sailings?

    Normandie not sailing as economie

    That may be so, but I don't want to hang around in Portsmouth or Le Havre late at night with nothing to and nowhere to go, waiting for a departure at 2330

    Normandie not sailing as economie

    Departure from Le Havre at 0930 would be acceptable to me but the other departure from Le Havre, and the two arrivals are unattractive to me and I wouldn't book them

    First Run

    Got the hang of airports ! Old age has some compensations ! A man with a wheel chair meets us at the airccraft door on arrival and my wife is installed in it while I shuffle behind. We are invariably escorted straight out through a discreet passport control booth marked "Diplomats and crew only". It has worked so far at Heathrow, Dubai and HongKong. Magic.

    Russian Cargo Ship Aground in Cornwall

    Still anchored at Falmouth but in the river mouth now - local branch of Mission to Seamen expressing concern and reported to have sent out some biscuits and chocolates (Russian Orthodox Christmas today) and four fishing rods for the crew "to entertain themselves and for them to catch their own food." Poor devils.

    Better nowadays than this.

    The Decline of the Travel Experience

    The only thing spoiling travel for me is old age - I can't go again to some of the places I loved.

    Brexit effect on BF

    Neil, I assume you have a 10pm sailing so I suggest a good dinner on shore before you go on board - we like Rock Salt restaurant which is within walking distance of the ferryport - then straight to bed, the cabins are good, and all August arrivals in Roscoff are early. Bon Voyage.

    Government charter

    But if the company radically changes the times of sailings then it's the company which would be changing my travel plans - not me.

    Government charter

    Five years ago we were entertained on here by a gentleman called Ernst who promised faithfully to re open Ramsgate/Ostend, and gave us the memorable assurance,"I want to give Larkspur and Gardenia a few more years to live" . Alas no one gave him £13.8 million and so they died. Happy New Year Ernst.
