Ferries full in febuary


Recommended Posts

Looking on bf ferry site ,looking for a earlier crossing Spain to the uk ,instead of the one we have got booked for 24 febuary.found out all of the crossings are fully booked for the month of febuary.than found out the cap has gone in for refit and that means only the two economic ferries are running which means less capacity.this must be a first for bf just to have economic ferries doing this route.

Nothing wrong with taking the BDS to Spain:) 
A fairly pleasant and comfortable experience in my experience! 

Not got a problem with bds,just that limited capacity with only having economic ferries running at same time.would of thought the cap or point would of been on this rune to increase capacity.

I noticed this too. This guy posted up a recent Bilbao to Portsmouth crossing on BDS. Go to 9:50 - that car deck is chock-o-block. Looks like a crossing in early August not late January. Is there some sort of last-trip-to-Europe-before-Brexit trend going on?

I'm finding it a bit of a pain...  we are booked to travel back from Spain on the Etretat this coming weekend (9/2/2019), but I am going to have to fly back in a couple of weeks to collect my van, which is currently in bits at local garage here in Spain. 

Looking at how I'm going to get the van back, however, it rather looks like I'm going to have to do the full schlepp through France :(

Yes but it won't be long before all that luxiourious freight space becomes available on Salamanca and Galacia ;)

Imagine - 2 brand new ships ploughing the route, and BREXIT may even be over (or at least decided)
