What is it like on board Brittany Ferries at the moment.

Post by Annabelle's Papa »

I know the Mont St Michel has been operating since the 29/6, has anyone travelled on it, what is it like, getting onboard, the bars, cafeteria, a la carte and shops are they open and what procedures are in place ?

I know you have to have a cabin but are you allowed to move freely around the boat with a mask on ?

We are travelling on Monday the 13/7 on the 2.45 pm from Portsmouth, we have reserved seating for that crossing.

So no-one has travelled with Brittany Ferries since they resumed some crossings from the 29/6 ?

About fifteen years ago lorry drivers were talking about hidden second fuel tanks.
I had a meal but cannot remember what it was.
No smartphone back then.

I was looking and noticed an increase in usual prices.

DFDS much cheaper although admittedly not such a luxurious service.

Thanks, I actually don't know if the fares have gone up, I am using credit notes and BF are transferring bookings to available slots at the original price, so it is hard to compare.

I would love to know how you found the experience when you get back :good:

I tend to use DFDS from Calais. Good value for money and reasonably efficient. Just make sure you take your own food with you :good:

We travel on Monday, information from Brittany Ferries, asks you to stay in your cabin as much as possible on board, face masks to be worn at ALL times, A La Carte not operating, we are on the Mont St Michel at 2.45pm, so I am hoping if the weather is nice, that I can sit outside and socially distance for as long as possible, I hate being in a cabin, so we have managed to book reserved seating but if anyone can add personal experiences to this, it would be appreciated. :good:
