Dover/Calais/Dover Crossing Wednesday 6 August 2008

SeaFrance Cézanne 11:05 & SeaFrance Rodin 15:15 The original plan for the day, to sail aboard SeaFrance Molière fell flat when her inaugural sailings kept being delayed & SF Cézanne was substituted. The 2nd plan to catch the 16:16 sailing back, to coincide with the departure of Carnival Splendor from Dover, also fell flat when that crossing was full & could not be booked. However as luck would have it, today turned out to be that for SeaFrance Molière's inaugural calls to both Calais & Dover for berthing trials etc. All SeaFrance vessels were dressed for the occasion, including Manet & Renoir laid-up in Calais. The timings of our crossings could not have been better, with being able to witness SF Molière sailing in the Channel beforehand, in Calais, departing Calais, berthing at Dover & then departing from Dover from the Western Cliffs.

Aboard SeaFrance Cézanne
Aug 6, 2008

What was once a wonderful state of the art vessel is now sadly a rusty, very tatty & dirty Cross Channel workhorse. One however does get the idea of what once was and she has superb amounts of accessible deck areas which on this lovely sunny day was full of people enjoying themselves, rather than being couped up in lounges, bars etc. She was also dressed for the day for the occasion of SeaFrance Molière's inaugural calls to Dover & Calais - Aug 6, 2008
