Title: OscarWilde Mincruise
Post by: marthyrarth on November 17, 2018, 03:28:00 PM
Hw do you book the minicruise to France - not clear from IF website.

Also can you use Tesco Vouchers - semmss to suggest you cannot but I think you can.

What if you are one person travelling - I do not want to pay for 2 - surely I can have a discount.

As travelling from Holyhead - Holyhead - Dublin route for a cheaper fare?

Will a bus take me from Cherbourg terminal to Hypermarket near middle of town?

Thanks for any help.

The last time I was over there was no bus to meet the ship.

This website gives information on the bus at the ferry terminal:

There isn't a link to the timetable but it can be found here:

Thanks for the info.

I got a quote for 219 euro for a 2 berth window cabin which is jut a bit expensive for two nights on a ferry and less than three hours in Cherbourg.

I can ago on BF return for 70 euro and have a full day in Rennes, and a crossing on the Pont Aven.

I would also have to pay 38 euro for a return Holyhead to Dublin fare, so not likely to go .  Why can't IF market better.  the ship is empty so surely a more reasonable offer to entice people would make sense.
