It?s a sight I thought I would never see, but if you go to http://www.euroferries.co.uk you will see that a bookings website has replaced the very poor website we?ve been staring at for the past 10 months.
The 14th November is the first possible bookings date and it will be interesting to see how many take up that option considering the amount of changes there have been with the start of sailings. The first announcement was for a 1st March sailing, then 31st March, then as the months ticked by this date was put further back until we were promised a final 1st September date, and then now it seems that as they are taking bookings, and that 14th November is the date, which should give them enough time to do trial runs, training, etc, and of course get people booked on board.
If in January Euroferries had announced that it would take a year to get everything set-up then I?m sure things will have gone a lot smoother, they would?ve got less hassle, and there would?ve been a lot less negative press about them, but having such short deadlines hasn?t done them any favours and may have even lost them customers who have lost faith.
In my first about Euroferries all those months ago I was very happy:
??we should also be thinking of the possibility of extra tourism in the area coming over from France and if this actually goes ahead then it is fantastic news for not just Ramsgate, but Thanet, and will hopefully be a success rivalling the old Sally Line days??
We shall wait and see?
