Big Mac's & VAT ( If booked online, where is the VAT actually paid? ) accounted for, It's the same ship, same staff, same ports, how can there be a 200 euro diff.

The VAT will have to be paid in the country where the website you booked via is registered in as they will issue you with a receipt which could be put in for expenses claims.

Aside from that, the price difference may just be a case of them charging what they think the public will be prepared to pay, or as much as they think they can get away with. Ed.

Thats exactly what it is BF are happy with the load factors they get on the Pont Aven and don't need to compete on price. This year they will have done well because of the problems 

IF have had with the W. B Yeats and next year people will be reluctant to book on it because of the way they were treated & also the reliability of the ferry when it does enter service

IF have also got very bad reaction/press coverage for the problems they have had generally with their fleet with Ulysses, Dublin Swift,Epsilon all having multiple sailings cancelled .

Whatever else you say about BF they do put money into their fleet and unless it is weather related few sailings are cancelled

Obviously a slow news day over in Cork. No cats stuck up trees (too intelligent) or topless protesters demonstrating against sexist judges this week (too cold) so let's go for a good, old doomsday-scenario report. Ed.

That's the Irish Press for you, playing catch-up

The Irish Press is long gone ;)

This is the d'Echo - a local paper for local people ..
