Most passenger ships have decent  buffets, restaurants and other catering. The main exception being ferries on very short crossings.


I know this is topic drifting a bit but are there any nominations for the shortest ferry crossings offering catering? I nominate the Lymington-Yarmouth (Isle of Wight) route (40 mins).

Feel free to move this to a new thread should this get much of a response.

Here's a further explanation.  How many incorrect images can you spot?

The 'weird, wrong-sided car' was definitely wrong-sided, as it appeared to be floating in the air just off the Dover Cliffs (or whatever cliffs those actually were), like Road Runner before he realises there's no ground beneath his feet.

Tuesday had come down through Dundrum and Foster Avenue, brine-fresh from sea-travel, a corn-yellow sun-drench that called forth the bees at an incustomary hour to their bumbling.

I spotted ...
- the boat train for Newhaven leaving from Waterloo, and arriving back at King's Cross
- Southern refunding the taxi fare for passengers using the Newhaven Marine link in US dollars
- Overhead electrification to Newhaven!

aaaahhh the dear old "Senlac"
Back in about 1973 or 4 I remember boarding a coach outside my old school in Doncaster at midnight, trundling through the night to join a 7am sailing of the old girl, across to Dieppe. Thence train to Paris, transfer across and onward train to Dinard. All great adventures for an eight year old!

For cross (English) channel work, a ferry is unlikely to be a barque or brig in more modern times.
Granted in earlier times it would have been, as would all medium distant sea routes have been.
Then we come on to clippers, etc.

From Bus and Train user

A review of the station and what's been going on, and a reminder that you have just TWO MORE DAYS if you wish to make an input to the consultation.

Quote
A public consultation into its formal closure opened on 15th January and closes at precisely 11:45pm this Sunday night, 19th April 2020.

From Network Rail Media Centre

Quote
Network Rail has completed extensive modification and refurbishment to Newhaven Marine Station, developing rail freight capacity and supporting a low-carbon economy by removing the need for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) on local roads.

The work – carried out in partnership with Brett Aggregates and the Newhaven Port Authority – is a key enabler for the construction industry and will see Newhaven Marine station open again after years of inactivity.

Thursday 18 June 2020 saw the first DB cargo freight train and 66113 loco enter the Newhaven Marine Aggregates Terminal. The terminal will serve the busy construction industry, mainly in London, with aggregate sand and gravel.

Indeed.  Article appears to have been pulled!! I went back and checked my source.

"Newly refurbished Newhaven Marine aggregate terminal focuses on freight Network Rail 16:01 Wed, 01 Jul"
currently at https://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/UK/Travel+&+Transport/Rail

We're sorry, the page you requested could not be found. The link may be out of date (we sometimes archive old content) or simply badly formed. Either way, we don't want you to leave empty handed

I wonder if it is "out of date" because someone realised it was a bad idea to brag while the station at Nrwhaven Marine remains 'open'.

There has been some rewording - the start now readss:

Network Rail has completed extensive modification and refurbishment to the network at the site of Newhaven Marine Station, developing rail freight capacity and supporting a low-carbon economy by removing the need for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) on local roads.

The work – carried out in partnership with Brett Aggregates and the Newhaven Port Authority – is a key enabler for the construction industry and will see the area open again after years of inactivity.

Thursday 18 June 2020 saw the first DB cargo freight train and 66113 loco enter the Newhaven Marine Aggregates Terminal. The terminal will serve the busy construction industry, mainly in London, with aggregate sand and gravel.

So that corrects the mistake of calling what's now there "Newhaven Marine Station".
