  1. I booked a short break in France offer from Portsmouth to Caen and return with 3 nights in a hotel in Arromanches. Worked out as £494 for two which is pretty good I think. Much cheaper than ferry and hotel seperately. Will be great to emerse ourselves in all the Normandy history again being the 75th Anniversary year. We also get Normandie on the way out and Mont St Michel on the way back which is nice.
  2. I love travelling with Brittany Ferries and have done numerous trips with them over the years. The majority of these have been day trips either with a car (more recently), or on foot. I also did a package trip to Santander once, and then hired a car which I loved. As much as I like the day trips (typically to Caen or St Malo and back), unfortunately you have to rush around like a mad thing to see places and always seems a shame to get back on the ferry at the end of the day, rather than extend the trip. So why not extend the trip I hear you ask? Well it just seems to cost so much more, e
  3. I'm heart-broken. I hate to say it, but it looks absolutely horrible in my opinion. Not to mention all the deck space which has gone. In the looks department MSM was right up there for me with Bretagne.....now I think it's become the worst looking BF Ferry. Wasn't a huge fan of Normandie's funnel to start with, but at least they managed to make the ferry look slightly more modern which in time I have grown to like. Can't see myself ever liking MSM's scrubber design now.
  4. I have a booking after 2nd July. Hope I'm able get transferred to DFDS instead, but it will be an anxious wait until I'm able to contact them tomorrow.
  5. I've just won a return trip on MyFerryLink for a car and up to 5 passengers to be used by March 2016. What do you think is the likelihood of the company being around that much longer? Don't want to book accommodation the other side and then the plug gets pulled on the whole MFL operation. Would like to use this in May/June/July/August
  6. Re: My Ferry Link - Updates Was up on the Dover cliffs today. Saw Berlioz coming in. Counted 15 cars/vans and 11 lorries off and about the same on. The ship must have turned around in about 20-25 mins and was back out way before the P&O crossing which had come in before it. There's something really depressing about watching the poor loadings and quick turnarounds of the MyFerryLink operation. Can't see them lasting very long to be honest which would be a real shame. And the name still isn't growing on me.
  7. Re: Why no foot passengers on MyFerryLink? Interesting responses. Didn't realise that costs of foot passengers in terms of bus links, check-in etc. were so high. I always wonder why Gardenia works Ramsgate - Ostende anyway - it looks tiny. Surely the the laid up Pride of Dover would be ideal for TEF short crossings. It's been in Tilbury for over two years now and still no sign of anything happening with it. Strange to see Moliere sat in Tilbury as well.
  8. Was just wondering why MyFerryLink in particular are not accepting foot passengers on their new Dover-Calais link? This seems very strange to me for a company trying to make a profit where Seafrance failed and compete with P&O. I know you will say that the real money with ferry operations is made with freight etc. but surely it is still an income stream worth having? Dover-Calais in particular has always attracted a lot of day trippers. I was trying to book as I fancied seeing what the new company was like to travel with as I live in Kent and then found I couldn't book as a foo
