Probably better to see the Cork services back to "normal" times. General sigh of relief from most people here when I mentioned it.

 

Even keeping the current winter timings all year would be ok as well...

Actually the French site has the Cork timings up now - arr in Cork 10:30 dep 17:30 so the layover and coach tours must be working out well for BF

Thanks Andy, no drastic changes - good to see.

I was in Weymouth recently and I saw the Elanora sitting in port unused, but then it's not particularly that big anyway.
