Staying afloat!!


Recommended Posts

In the past when sailing from Roscoff on the Pont Aven to U.K. in the morning, my next booking from U.K. to Santander was on the same ferry, so on embarkation at Roscoff a notice was put on our  windscreen saying Espange so we were able to stay on board without disembarking in U.K. and going through the checking in procedure all over  again.  (We we’re checked in onboard at reception)
 

This procedure also worked when sailing from Santander to Roscoff on the same ship Pont Aven, is this still happening since the covid pandemic?

When your being loaded onto the car deck your parked in a special place so not to interfere with cars leaving in U.K., plus your then facing the correct way when you get to Spain or Roscoff.  There are usually quite a few of us, they were doing it all the time when the same vessel carries onto France or Spain.

I guess that must also mean you will be one of the first to embark (?).

A few years back when we did a Chrisnmas cruise on the PA, it started at Portsmouth and picked up at Plymouth en route to Santander.  Like us, many of the passengers took their cars to use as a luggage and Santander Boxing Day shopping carrier and used the PA as a non disembarking car park. The Plymouth cars were all buried on deck 2.

We were down there a couple of years ago with our Campervan, parked on the exit ramp, thought that isn't to bad until the hatch wouldn't open when we arrived, the other half was not happy started to feel claustrophobic.
