  1. Out on the 0815 Portsmouth to Ouistreham and back on the 2300 to Portsmouth. Quick day trip. First time on Normandie. She's a good ship and the cabin gangways are very reminiscent of Bretagne. (Have included a pic of Bretagne leaving Portsmouth the previous evening, taken at Southsea). Return on Mont St Michel. Great ship and very quiet considering peak summer holidays. Went as a foot passenger. Very well organised and actually disembarked both vessels well ahead of the vehicle drivers.
  2. It’s now possible to pre-order a continental breakfast on overnight sailings onboard the Mont St Michel. Orders are taking at the information desk and can be collected from the Salon du The the following morning. If the trial proves to be popular it will be rolled out onto the Normandie and the rest of the fleet.

  5. Just returned from a weekend trip in St Malo. Outbound Outbound, we travelled Friday overnight on the Mont St Michel to Caen, departing at 22:00. We wanted to try a new ship and dad was happy to drive down the following morning. We arrived in Portsmouth relatively early, and had to wait for check in. It was funny seeing the number of cars for the Pont-Aven to St Malo turning up last minute. By the time we had gone through security, Pont-Aven had departed. The crossing was as expected, rather busy being a Friday night and Etretat delayed from dry dock. Thus, there was a good number of Lorries waiting to board. We were parked on the mezzanine platform Deck 6. We had a bite to eat in the Self-Service, and had a quick explore before heading to bed. By the time we had booked the crossing, all 2 berths had been booked out so we had to book a 4 berth inside. However, this was better as we were on Deck 9 rather than Deck 7. We had a very comfortable quiet night sleep and at times, it didn’t feel like we were on a boat! Arrival was early, but this was a sacrifice we made. After a quick croissant (we didn’t use the new order night before service), we were soon off the boat and on the road. We contemplated having a look around locally, however it was dark and early, so we decided to hit the road. Return We enjoyed a nice day in St Malo on the Saturday having a walk around and a bite to eat in the Intra-Muros. Popped into E.Leclerc for some bits. We returned on the 10:30 day crossing on the Bretagne. We woke up early on Sunday morning to see her arrive. I thought the crossing was going to be quiet, but there was good number of cars waiting. In fact, Deck 5 was almost full. After some breakfast, we went for a sleep in our 2 berth inside cabin on Deck 8. Had a wander on the outside decks and sat in the bar. For dinner, I wanted the lasagne which was on the menu but unfortunately they didn’t have any left. However, the ‘plat du jour’ was Beef Bourguignon which I had enjoyed previously. I even treated myself to one of the desserts. Arriving in Portsmouth, the front deck was closed off, so we stood towards the front of the starboard side of Deck 9, just below the bridge. Disembarkation was swift, and we were soon off onto the M275 home. Thoughts We were very impressed with the Mont St Michel. The ship is modern, comfortable and as I said, it didn’t feel like we were on a boat. The cabin was quiet but then we were on deck 9! The ship is well laid out and nicely furnished. We would certainly travel on her again. I also really enjoyed the crossing on Bretagne, I always do, she never fails to disappoint! Noticed some new carpet in places and some new panelling around the ship including new panels to indicate what was on each deck. It was nice to see she is still being cared for.
  6. Hi All, I am currently working on a project for Vehicle Simulator. Creating the exterior and Interior of the MSM. It will cover most communal areas and some cabins. Project is going well however what I need now are sound files to add. I have most sound effects from a previous voyage a few years back. But what i need are announcements played on the crossing. Ideally any announcements recorded this year with the new tannoy chime to make it as realistic as possible. If anyone has any then I would really appreciate a copy or link. Many thanks.
