    Yes, but not until September.  I won't be booking with them again after the way the staff have been treated. :013:

    I have 4 of us booked in June, should be enough time to sort themselves out.  :084:

    8 of us booked for Santander crossing in September - don't know if there will be anyone left to drive the boat after they laid off so many staff.

    If they don't sort it out the Chunnel is gonna be very busy.  :087: For the cost, it might be worth booking a cancellable ticket just in case.. :084:

    P&O have not done that route for about 20 years!

    Your Santander ferry will be run by Brittany Ferries who use French crew and the business has been propped up by M.Macron during Covid due to its importance for freight transport.

    Off to Germany for Easter but going on the Chunnel!

    I gave up on the ferries years back!
    After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

    Thanks for pointing that out Wessie. As you probably guessed I'm not the organiser !
