  1. Though, wasn't it highlighted this week on this forum that, with the exception Cap Finistere and NEX, the entire current fleet was built for use with BF? A new situation for BF. I gather that some of the old ships had more character (though we may well be saying the same thing in 20 years time!) but they weren't built for BF. Wasn't Bretagne the first ship that BF actually ordered from new?
  2. If that's the case, then their website is wrong as it shows two round trips for each day of the week. Does anyone know what the pre-Brexit timetable was - 24, 28 or another number of sailings per week?
  3. Me too. Do they have a vessel that can fit in an extra 10 rotations (seems unlikely to be that much demand) or is this just a typo? The Europe seems to only be in port for about 2 hours on most rotations, so not a lot of slack
  4. that's quite a service, they must need at least three vessels to operate it
  5. Does the "flex" bit of their name mean that these changes could be made relatively easily to the Estrid and Embla, also? I'm thinking in terms of the ability to supply enough hot water etc. rather than plumbing for each cabin - that kind of level of pre-planning
  6. Sounds like they missed a trick - what about Newhaven - Portsmouth?
  7. I guess we'll see but I think your own suggestions (Fishguard and Dunkerque) alongside Roscoff, St Malo, are where I'd start. It will be interesting to see how the Irish Ferries landbridge option works out.
  8. The PA changes somewhat from front cover to inside pictures!
  9. I was meaning the principle. Dover obviously has less opportunity for it's route to 'fan out' due to proximity to the mainland but I'm sure we'll see an even quicker rationalisation of routes from Rosslare than we did in Dover.
  10. I think the current livery is good. Like the P&O one too. The current livery looks modern, it suits Bretagne very well, disguising her age and dumpy nature As a kid, I loved the Color Line (navy blue) and Scandinavian Seaways diagonal blue stripes but the ferries I drew were always in Townsend Thoresen colours.
  11. I bet bunkering companies around the coast of Africa are running their hands in glee
