Save the date! The inauguration ceremony for Galicia's entry into the Brittany Ferries fleet will be taking place virtually on the 27th November.  Everyone will be able to take part via a weblink

Unfortunately 9h arrival turned out to be South African time - she was tying up when I got down to the port at 8h so only just getting light. She does look mighty impressive though, will try agai

What's the crusade for? We're into the 5th page of this nonsense. Every Ro-Pax and passenger ferry at sea has different levels of accommodation. Are we to begin rattling our sabres at t

The online PDF leaflet for Galicia has finally been released:

https://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/sites/default/files/2020-12/Galicia Ship Guide_12-2020.pdf

The deckplans are in the same style as shared on NI ferry site. However, the cabins are shown a bit more clearly and the pet cabin corridor is highlighted  

I was a little concerned when I looked at the picture of cabin numbers: 901-935, 936-955 956-990 in that, in line with the previous comments re the various problems with the ablutions arrangements , that there appeared to be a "portapotti" in the corner of the cabin! Fortunately on zooming in it showed itself as a quirky design chair.

You can be sure that someone will try putting their head through the hole after a few pints in the bar and will have to disembark with it hanging from their neck to meet the waiting fire brigade.

I am sure that Francois the crew member with the big sledgehammer who sorts out PA's stuck bow doors will soon free it!

But which should he hit?  The head or the chair?

He will use butter and red wine ...

So true. Even Jean Le Cam said it after getting some butter from the frigate which collected Kevin Escoffier from his ship off the Kerguelen

Bar à l’espagnole et balcons de fer forgé : une nuit à bord du Galicia, nouveau ferry de la Brittany (ouest-france.fr)

Another article about the first rotation through Cherbourg. They found a photo that makes Thierry look old and grumpy, which he isn't. Many of you will recognise Carmen from the Pont Aven. My favourite memories are of her on the arm of Joseph Hardouin, in fits of giggles ....

More photos.

Mainly the same as the previous French press article. Criticism from a freight driver about shared facilities. 6 showers apparently.

Chris, Finewine, do you know Thierry, local man, blooming good racing sailor, like several others at BF.
