One season the port of Arromanches did have 2.5 million passengers and 500,000 vehicles.

I think we all make the mistake in not appreciating the ways and means. A port may have excellent facilities but if the access and approaches are limited HGV's and holiday traffic will look elsewhere.

Yeah, the French BFenthusiasts website has been on strike from about 5 minutes before it went live. And that was 15 years ago. Ed.

Armorique is operating a mid week sailing from Roscoff to Cork in addition to the Pont-Aven's weekend trip, departing Roscoff on a Tuesday.

But no mention of Kerry's weekly sailing from Rosslare to Roscoff , has it been dropped or is it something related to the Spanish sailings which are yet to be published ?

Booked Ply - Ros return for August next year. Out on Armorique, back PA Sunday morning. Was tempted by the PA Friday sailing too but that would mean leaving home very early. Wonder what the Bretagne plans are then if St. Malo isn't happening just yet? Would have thought that would be one of the easier ones to timetable..

Interesting that the link in Andy's post has Galicia available in the 'Cruise Ferries'  Mine doesn't - is he using an advance version of the BF website?

I just manually typed in the web address from one of the existing ships, and put in Galicia ;)

Access to open deck on Galicia suggests a private Commodore deck area, rather than balconies?

It looks like PA is doing her schedule over winter until she enters service with the changeover days in Cherbourg rather than Roscoff.

Perhaps it's the cabins at the back of the ship that some on here were speculating about having direct deck access.

As expected Galicia will use Cherbourg for crew changes and in terms of the future outlook the ship can carry a large amount of HGV's heading to and from the new rail link.

It's possible it's Spanish related but it's also worth remembering that Kerry is due to leave the fleet in November with Connemara returning to Ireland.

Has Plymouth-Roscoff always had no return sailing Tuesday/Wednesday or is that new?

I think that any of the Vissentis are in the timetable

It will be, that's a feature, not a massively useful one, of the Stena ships.

Note that the BF email says:-

Coming soon. Services to Spain, Portsmouth to St Malo and Portsmouth to Le Havre will be available shortly. We'll be in touch again soon with more details

 

It does not mention anything about any extra sailings on Portsmouth to Cherbourg on any fast craft !

As long as no one can walk in from outside and the door can be left open for fresh air that is fine - a number of ' French balconies' on river cruises are no more than sliding doors with adjacent interior seats,

Unless otherwise negotiated Kerry is leaving, she's a short term 12 month charter. Etretat is on a 6 month renewable contract and Connie still has 2 years.

They're not the best in terms of pax comfort but they're very, very useful and now that the berth extension has been completed at Ouistreham they can fit any port served by BF.

Looking at it, apart from the Incat (so far) BF will be utilising all of the fleet in 2021 so maybe two will inevitably be returned to Stena?

That is new, previously when the PA did a mid week crossing it was afternoon over and night time back, with the Arm still doing her normal.  There are no overnight north bound sailings from Roscoff, so no 24hr trips, which were very good specially with bikes.

I think that the only issue is the Etretat, the Kerry goes & the Connemara stays with the Galicia replacing the BDS.

That just leaves Le Havre and St Malo, will the Bretagne fit in Le Havre ?

And just as well my Granny’s dead or she would have wanted her kitchen curtains back from Galicia’s club cabins.

What about the coloured commodes? !
