New Year New Ferry Service?
I was quite excited to hear the news last October that a fast craft service was to arrive in January 2013 and start a ferry service from Ramsgate to Boulogne in February. Boulogne is a brilliant port right in the town with lots of nice restaurants and shops and in my opinion much better than Calais. So the prospect of going from Ramsgate instead of Dover was the icing on the cake.
I know that Euroferries attempted a start some time ago without success but this time the press releases looked quite promising.
I read as much as I could find and even Thanet Council spokesman said he was cautiously optimistic.
Since this time I have regularly visited the Euroferries' site but no further details have been added. Similarly surfing the web I can find no updates. My original enthusiasm is now changing to disappointment and visiting
