  1. I have never in 14yrs been asked if I have small “pointy” objects about my person! I always have a tiny Swiss knife with scissors, 2inch blade, screw driver, tweezer, toothpick and nail file in my pocket for a multitude of purposes. Maybe I should declare it as an offensive weapon and hope they won’t ban me!!!
  2. Gijon is well used for freight and cars recently improved just waiting fo be reused regularly as a RoRo cruise ferry terminal. Reinstate the highway of the sea Gijon/St Nazaire route as a starter.
  3. From where to Vigo. Why Vigo, Porto or A’ Coruna are much better known places
  4. We are CV members and booked Portsmouth - Santander with 6 nights in Spanish paradors just received final notice of changes. No hint of compensation or 40% refund for sailing element!
  5. My Tesco visa works every time! We must be the other 50%.
  6. I’m blowed it has! Lots of care needed to get it off without scratching the paint work. It is there and does lock and unlock the doors but does not disable alarm. Just spent a good hour re-reading the manuals for both cars and cracked it a quick double click does the job for the Alhambra still not sure about the Fabia.
  7. As I said 2014 has no key hole to use the key in!
  8. Same on our 2014 plate LHD Skoda Fabia always put them in here (see above) and no button on the B pillar.
  9. 2014 Alhambra has twist button on drivers armrest to bring mirrors in and put them. Always do that here in Spain and Portugal they cost several hundred £ to replace and the no of cars you see with a mirrors hanging by a cable makes me very nervious.
  10. I have seen 17 plate RHD Yeti’s in Devon where they are incredibly popular one particular one was absolutely immaculate and just seen a 19 plate LHD IN PORTUGAL. The later ones have no markings at the back so difficult to tell if they are diesel or 4x4.
  11. Red the manual cover to cover on my Seat Alhambra 2014 but no where does it tell you how to disable the car alarm. Old sharan just lock with key but no key holes on new Alhambra. Two pushes of lock button just disables dead bolts no mention of alarm. Looked on enthusiasts websites not come across answer yet!
  12. Last RHD produced 2017. Replaced by new SUV not as compact externally so not as good for N Devon lanes!
  13. This is the response I have just received just now to my email requesting a booking on the 15th July :- “I have booked a table for you on the Pont-Aven at 1830 (UK time) on 15th July 2019. If you have any queries regarding your restaurant booking whilst on board, please go to the Information desk on deck 6. The table will be reserved for you until 1845, after which time it will be released. Tables are allocated onboard and we cannot take advance booking requests for specific tables. If you amend your travel dates online, your restaurant booking will not longer be valid and you will need to contact us to rearrange (subject to availability). We hope you enjoy your crossing and Bon Appétit!” It is worth noting they give you 15mins to take your table then it is reallocated. On that basis you cannot afford to be stuck behind a long queue.
  14. I have always pre-booked the early sitting which often coincides with the tail end of loading. This means that the early boarders are already queuing to book and if we are later we just have time to drop our cases in the cabin and make our way down to La Flora. Your booking expires if you are delayed so definitely do not join the queue but politely make your way to the front and make yourself known and you will be seated by one of the staff. We have pre-booked for several years now, at first I thought it was restricted to Club Voyage and Commodore bookings but I am not sure that is still the case.
  15. We always seem to end up with a couple of those in our bag when we leave the Pont heading home.
