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
