"BARFLEUR" to resume service with BRITTANY FERRIES

 It was recently announced that the "BARFLEUR" at present on charter with DFDS/LD LINES on the Dover/Calais route is to resume service with BF on the Cherbourg/Poole crossing next March, good news for the frequent passengers, for both regions on the Channel and of course for the BF crews. There has been some complains about the DEAL SEAWAYS not being able to cope with the 45 minutes turnarounds on the Dover/Calais, the fact is she was not tailored for that type of ferry service, she will do well as always when she resumes service on the route she was built for
                                   Barfleur at sea in May last year
                                  On board the DEAL SEAWAYS, 16.6.2012, probably no need to change the name

still time for a bargain trip to France this year with BRITTANY FERRIES

BRITTANY FERRIES is giving many people the opportunity to travel to France this summer at a bargain price, so fed up with the British summer weather, perhaps France would be the option for a week away, for all the information, please visit BF UK site at Top photo, taken from BF's website, the other two, "NORMANDIE" and "MONT ST MICHEL" at Portsmouth

Unexpected post on this blog, the BARFLEUR arriving at Calais on the 17.6.2012, the ship is on charter with the new joint-venture LD LINES/DFDS on the Dover/Calais route, she does five crossings per day and together with the NORMAN SPIRIT they are the only competition on this busy service to P & O FERRIES, after the collapse with SEAFRANCE. I have travelled on the "DEAL SEAWAYS" her ridiculous new name and was pleased to see her back at sea, she still flies the French flag and is registered at Cherbourg, I hope she will go back to BF sooner than later

Brand new "MONT ST MICHEL"

Seen here departing Ouistreham is the brand new MONT ST MICHEL, the ship was delivered to BF in December of 2012 and she is captured here in January of 2013, one of her first voyages on the Ouistreham/Portsmouth service, I remember like it was yesterday and almost ten years have now passed

easy than ever to take your pet abroad

under the previous DEFRA rules, pet owners had to wait up to seven months between monitoring the rabies vaccine and re-entry in the UK, after the introduction of new rules on the 1.1.2012 the waiting time as been reduced to 21 days only, also tick treatment for returning pets to the UK is also no longer required, for full details please visit So with the Holidays coming it's never been easy to travel with your pet abroad and a lot cheaper as well. BRITTANY FERRIES is the best pet travel orientated company offering very good facilities for pets, particulary dogs. PONT-AVEN and CAP FINISTERE dog friendly cruise ferries, for prices and timetables, please visit BF official website
