The information about the coach transfer might be useful for some passengers so I can see the advantage of posting the official BF information alongside yours. Ed.

In one cabin?

The reply suggests it might be more general but I don't know. I guess it depends if each cabin has a separate thermostat or not. Ed.

She seems to be underway now after a delay of almost 12 hours. There are some suggestions on Twitter that the passengers were told the problem was due to engine failure. Ed.

And Twitter is awash with disgruntled passengers who have now found themselves somewhere they didn't want to be and facing a long drive home or bus ride back to Portsmouth. Plus those heading for Portsmouth who now need to find their way to Plymouth.

There is also one woman (with a heart condition) who appears to be the carer for a severely handicapped child and who is extremely angry at it all. I assume she has to travel by ferry as the airlines refuse to carry potentially disruptive passengers but from the description she provides on Twitter it can't have been much fun for the other PA passengers either. I get the impression reading the mother's tweets that in a real emergency on board her daughter could present a danger to all those on board. I wonder what BF's policy is on accepting people with behavioural problems.

Hopefully as seems to be the case with this particular person, they accept them without any issues other than ensuring that the person has support from there carers/family as they need and they take responsibilty which they should be doing anyway seen they are the carers/family.
