Ferry-stalgia from 1993

Recommended Posts

 

Interesting article from the pre-budget airline era of ferry travel.

Anybody know how the subsidised ticket scheme worked out in the end for Basque government and P&O? Did it carry on until the route closed?

I believe P&O had to pay back a sum of money to the Basque Government when the route closed as there was a large number of unused tickets.

I sailed on Val De Loire in July 1993 for the first time, as part of a family holiday to South West France. I think the love of ferries & sea travel generally really began with that trip.
