Curiously the website states that the "Winter 2017/18" schedules are the ones that are about to be published.  Does that mean that what is about to come out will only go up to around March 2018?

I phoned the BF reservations team this morning and booked for June/July 2018.

Nothing showing for Cork-Roscoff next year.....(?)

Looks like the summer offering in Plymouth-Roscoff has been reduced slightly (by 1 sailing per week in each direction).  The Weds night sailing from Roscoff has gone.

Surprised that Pont Aven is not off for refit at some point.  Will have been 2 years by Spring 2018.

Was it last year she had a bit of a stay in Brest too?  I agree, I'd expected to see her off at somepoint. Must be Nov 18..

Time flies but I'm pretty sure the 1-week Brest visit was Jan 2015.

Don`t know if I have missed something, but when browsing the routes and prices, looking particularly at Caen next year, it always used to give you the name of the ship due to operate the route you were booking on. Now for 2018 that information appears to be missing. Or maybe I`ve been looking in the wrong place. Any ideas folks?

If you mean when making a booking, it should say the name of the ship on the right hand side after you've chosen the sailing you want.

Hmmm, that's odd, it's worked for me, maybe it would work in a different browser e.g. chrome / firefox ???

Thanks for that Sness, appreciated. It is a Windows 10 thing maybe but mine doesnt bring it up like yours, as above. Instead I have now got a bottom command line called ` Your booking so far`.press on this and you get the ship details...I`ll never understand these blasted things!!!!!

Well, I managed to make 2 bookings for April and September next year on Cap Finistere to Bilbao with dog friendly cabin (wife refuses to go on Baie de Seine again ) after listening to music for 49 minutes  and was surprised it was only £80 more expensive than Economie , luckily we managed to get the only vacancy for September with dog.

Armorique finishes covering for MSM at Portsmouth on 9 February and takes over from Barfleur at Cherbourg on 19 February.  Somewhat perversely, she goes back to Plymouth in between where she undertakes a total of 13 passages to or from Roscoff.  A kind of token week in which Plymouth-Roscoff revives during the middle of what is effectively otherwise an 8-week shut-down!

Back on the subject of Pont Aven, looking a bit more closely I see there is a period between 22 November and 7 December when Pont Aven appears to be off service at St Malo.  So she is off service for basically 2 weeks - enough time for a quick visit to Gdansk or possibly another interim dry-docking in Brest?

I'd be surprised to see her off to Gdansk for such a short period of time, especially given the time needed to get there and back again. What's the shortest time we've seen a ship in Gdansk for??

Yes, sorry, both parts of my last sentence were intended as questions.  I was querying whether 2 weeks was enough time for a trip to Gdansk.  Technically Pont Aven could do the trip in 3 days each way, which could leave a week for her to be at the yard, but thinking about it there is also the day she would need to spend either side destoring and storing.  So I agree, it is highly unlikely there would be time for a meaningful trip to Poland.  Must be Brest then?

Yes, agreed, I would've thought BF would prefer Brest over a Polish mini-break but either way I can't see that there'll be any 'major' changes  in only 2 weeks

Is that not half term week? It may be a token week as you say, but perhaps well chosen.
