The Cork-Roscoff ferry route will reopen early next month.
Brittany Ferries has confirmed a “limited return” to scheduled passenger services this summer after carrying only essential freight from late March to May.
In all, five ships will carry passengers when services resume from Monday, June 29th, with the Pont-Aven set to depart Cork at 4pm on July 4th, 2020.
“We are very much looking forward to welcoming holidaymakers back on board starting on Monday,” said Christophe Mathieu, CEO Brittany Ferries.
“Operationally, we have put in place everything for a safe return to service and we have practised these measures daily. Our job now is to reassure passengers that ferries are open for business and that travel by sea is the safest way to enjoy an international holiday.
“It won’t be quite the same Brittany Ferries experience on board of course, at least to start with. However, it will still be a relaxing sea bridge to take you to the beautiful destinations you have been dreaming of during lockdown.”
Ferry passengers can expect some changes on board, with capacity restrictions, staggered embarkation and disembarkation and the requirement for a cabin (or very limited reserved seats on some day sailings) alongside intensified cleaning and social distancing.
