Winter Break In Roscoff, France - Day 1

Not long ago, we went for a 3D2N break in Roscoff, France, with another family friends of ours in Plymouth. It was no real biggie, because Plymouth to Roscoff is only around 115 miles aways, much closer to some of the other attractions in the UK itself. With Plymouth being so south and end of the world away from tempat2 UK lainnya, it was closer to France and was the perfect choice. More like a spur of the moment kind of decision because we didn't plan way in advance about the trip, we just got pretty sick and tired of all work and no play life here so terus booking the ferry the there, voila!

What made it so interesting to us was the chance to experience the cruise-style travel. This was no express ferry to France, we got on an overnight cruise ship. So bole la merasa jgk what it's like kan, x pernah2. Setakat naik ferry biasa2 tu ada la. And it was a winter holiday offer, siap dpt bed and breakfast di Roscoff, so it really was a good deal from Brittany Ferry.

At first, I didn't think it was going to that much fun, it being a a holiday in the winter. Plus I'd read comments on the internet psl the horrible conditions of the cabins in the ferry and the run-down hotels that they offer in Roscoff. Terbaca plak lps dah booking, so pasrah je la. So in all honesty, I was a bit nervous. But Alhamdulillah, they were all wrong! We had a different experience than what were written in the reviews. This is our review:

[1] Walau mula nya rasa biasa2 je, lps check in, terus bertukar jd teruja. Dia punya terminal and check in ala2 airport, so how could I not be? Terlupa plak ni International deal, ada kaunter check-in, ada departure lounge, ada x-ray, and ada Imigresen, so dpt la cop di passport wehehehei...



[2] Oh, and how could I not be excited by the sight of the grand ship itself - the Armorique!!!! Kitaorg naik mlm, pkl 10 pm. Dijangka sampai 8 pg, so we booked a cabin for 2.




[3] Mula2 naik cari bilik. Mmg mcm corridor hotel. Gmbr kelabu sbb silap setting camera masa ni. Beratus2 gak biliknya. Armorique ni ada 11 decks. Deck 6 ke bawah utk isi kereta, bus, lori, etc. Deck 7 ni pusat rekreasi, Deck 8 ke atas cabins.



[4] Ni bilik 2 org. Sengaja amik yg on the inside, maka x dpt la window. X kisah la, sbb mlm kan, nak tgk apa kat luar. Katil bunk Hubs tu bole lipat and ada tangga. Ada ensuite bathroom jg, and meja solek.




[5] Ada jgk bilik 4 org which we booked for our way return, or bole jg nak terus up kan jd cabin Club Plus. Kalo x nak cabin pon bole, book reclining seat aje.



[5] Lps tu gi lepak2 ngan Shafie sekeluarga kat lounge and then pusing2. Level 7 & 8 ni ada mcm2 - lounge, cafe, arcade, shops, etc. Mmg x kan boring la...



[6] Cinema pon adooo.... Tayang 2 cerita lg serentak...



[7] Kat kafe ada microwave wakaf, so brg siapa yg bawak bekal pon bole panaskan makanan di sini, free-of-charge.



[8] Bosan duk dlm, bole gi amik angin kat deck luar. Tp x dpt lama2, sbb sejukkkk!



[9] Mcm dlm flight jgk, ada tunjuk peta kita kat mana and how far we have more to go.



[10] Budak2 paling suka ini. For obvious reasons la kan... :)






Nak suruh tido bukan main susah lps tu...

Ok la, to be continued nnt cerita psl dah mendarat di Roscoff plak (Day 2). Check this space out ;)
