Minicruise

We should have been on a minicruise to Bruges tonight, got a phone call last night at 5pm saying it was cancelled due to weather, bit annoyed as I was looking forward to it.

Not surprised it's cancelled, forecast is storm force 10 all down the North Sea. Now that would have been one helluva rollercoaster ride, better than any theme park. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


Seriously though, what is annoying is if you have to amend a booking there's a £25 fee usually.

Just had a look and the Pride of York is sailing tonight to Zeebrugge. At this moment it is just off the coast at Great Yarmouth but is carrying freight only.

Re: Minicruise

I had booked it through Caledonian Travel, went back in yesterday and because I could not make any other minicruise they refunded my cash, now need to work out if i can get the time to go while 241 is on and just take the car down.

 Yep. What I meant was it's ok for P&O to cancel at a moments notice but normally if you want to cancel or amend a booking there's a charge.

Re: Minicruise

We survived ha ha.

it was a bit rough on the outbound sailing,but the boat still docked on time,very breezy in zeebrugge.

drove down to calais for our wine,luckily they have the echo falls in stock this time. The 'jungle' is in clear veiw now as you head into calais port,high fencing all the way down and no illegals hanging about the roads into the port,plenty police about aswell so we felt a bit safer driving through to get to the wine warehouse.

back up to pidou for some cheap but very good red wine.

into adinkirke for a brew and chocs.  Spotted a lorry unloading a load of immigrants at the services in belguim,probably about 10-15 men women and kids amongst them.

had a few hours to spare so we had a drive round bray dunes,it was a ghost town,but no wonder considering the weather!

Went into verune,excellent little town to spend a few hours in,some great buildings,churches and a museum to visit,plus plenty of cafes and bars,well worth a visit.

Back on board,boat was very quiet,we booked a window cabin so we could get wifi and watch a film on the laptop,big mistake considering the weather ha ha,very rough sailing back,the waves were crashing and banging on the boat and i was sliding up and down the bed ha ha.luckily legnthways.

nice and calm when we landed in Hull,and on time,very quick off the boat but a delay at immigation,there was no one there!

we waited about 20 mins for the UKBF to arrive,one woman ukbf walked the full length of the car que and took the time to explain to every driver and apologized ,and explained why they were delayed, apprently the rotterdam boat was a hour late docking and this had a knock on effect,i thought this was a very nice gesture and you certainly wouldn't get this at DOVER i'm sure..

IMMIGRATION PCP opened around 9.00pm and we were soon through and out .

Re: Minicruise

Glad you're back safe and sound,
You made me laugh with your comment "Back on board, boat was very quiet, we booked a window cabin" I read this as a Window seat, As on a plane. just shows me that I should read things twice.

Re: Minicruise

Hahaha   Bet there were some choice words from Jean!

Bray Dunes being in France is only lively during the French holidays. Only problem is with the beach being North facing you don't get the sun on the prom. Been through Veurne but never stopped. It was bigger than I expected.

Sounds like they are attempting to keep order in Calais - about time.

Re: Minicruise

Last July we had some time to spare so drove round to Bray Dunes to have our coffee and sarnies before returning to Coquelles.

Drove the full length of beach parking, to north of town, and only found one empty parking place right at far end.

Always remember when Last of the Summer Wine filmed and episode there. Compo was revisiting Dunkirk evacuation.
