  1. Bretagne has been a familiar sight in Portsmouth for over 25 years, and this weekend she is celebrating her 30th birthday. She was the first fully commissioned cruise-ship for Brittany Ferries and a great achievement for a company that was relatively new. Since being launched from the Chantiers de L’Atlantique in St Nazaire, she has become a moving tribute to the hard work and determination of the Breton farming cooperative that started the company, bearing the same name as the region in which the company began and their headquarters still remain. Bretagne is one-of-a-kind, thanks to
  2. The Val de Loire joined the Brittany Ferries fleet in June 1993 as the companies flagship, sailing between Plymouth, Santander, Roscoff and Cork. Her operations remained largely unchanged until the arrival of the Pont-Aven in March 2004 which saw her transferred to Portsmouth where she operated daily sailings to St Malo and Cherbourg. It was announced on the 25th November 2005 that Brittany Ferries had sold the Val de Loire to North Sea operator DFDS Seaways for operation between Newcastle and Amsterdam, where she will be renamed 'King of Scandinavia'. After almost 13 years sterling service th
  3. It was certainly an amazing few days, and it was a privilege to have been onboard the maiden voyage of the Pont-Aven… Tuesday 23rd March The Val de Loire slipped her moorings for the final time a little after 9pm on Tuesday the 23rd March. She was making room for the Duc de Normandie, inbound from Roscoff, sailing empty to St Malo to position herself for her what is now her permanent route, running alongside the Bretagne to Portsmouth and also to Cherbourg. A grand total of 4 people watched her leave from Grand Parade for what might be the final time. The Duc de Normandie sailed past her in
  4. Hi, This forum really helped me with choosing cabins for our Pont Aven, Portsmouth-Santander, trip this May. Thanks. I’ve never really booked a long time in advance before, does anyone have any experience on the cheapest time of year to buy tickets for the following Summer (July)? Looking for the same journey, for 2 cabins. Is it worth booking now, or are there certain times of the year/months before travel when they are definitely cheaper? Any wisdom gratefully received! Thanks

    Centro Botin

    Santander's long awaited arts and exhibition centre officially opens this Friday (23rd June 2017). Occupying the former ferry port car lanes, the arts centre was designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Renzo Piano, in collaboration with Luis Vidal and Architects and is seen by many as Santanders answer to Bilbao's Guggenheim. More info can be found here: http://www.centrobotin.org/
  6. On the Pont Aven on Monday, the pilot attached itself to the ship as it left Santander. I didn't see them come on board, so trying to work out the reason for this. Does anyone in the know have an answer?
  7. Came across this on the interweb, dating form 2010. A great shot taken from Bretagne's helipad (Cantabrian mountains in background). https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/page/pic/?o=1fs&pic_id=822542&size=large&v=3
  8. After over 20 years service to Brittany Ferries the Quiberon stood down from service on the 20th December 2002. She was sold 'Lauro Line' on February 20th, 2003 and was been renamed 'Guilia D'Abundo' during August 2003, sailing for Med Mar. Her new route is between Sete-Palma de Mallorca. She commenced sailing in June 2003 following a refit and repaint in Brest. During her 20 years of service she was based in Plymouth and will always be fondly remembered by all. Farewell Old Friend The Quiberon began life as the Nils Dake, built at the Rendsburg Werft Nobiskrug yard Germany in 1975.
