  • "BF catering lets a good service down"

    In almost all respects my recent journey , aboard Bretagne, was enjoyable and the vessel met high standards.....but. On an 8.5 hour crossing was the restaurant only open for 1 hour 15 minutes? And at almost €30 for the privilege. The self-service cafeteria meal was pre-cooked, tired and dull. At least the fish tasted quite good, though luke warm. Very clean ship. Staff very pleasant. Drinks at very good prices. Disembarkement fairly quick. Arrival bang on time.
