Accomadation on Pride of Bristol

I've been asked what type of accomadation is provided on the Pride of Bristol (For the Spirit of Cardiff send-off) - That threads getting a bit large so I thought I would start a new one.

OK - we basicly have 4 cabins that we use for passengers

2 - Five Berth cabins
1 - Three Berth
1 - Four Berth

(We also have a six berth and a "skippers" cabin that we use for crew)

Depending on the split between males / females and couples we change the usage of the cabins.

The 3 berth is sometimes a "female" cabin - or could be used for 1 couple (The top bunk is a bit cramped!)

The 4 berth could be used for 2 couples.

The two 5 berths are normaly used as male or female cabins.

All these cabins are in the main part of the ship. There are three flushing heads (toilets) and two hot showers

There is a small galley, a small "crew room" and a large ward room for passengers containing TV etc.

The ship is fully heated and ventilated (It was fitted for working in Norway!) and has 240V,120V and 3 phase electric!

I will take some pics of the accomadation tomorrow night and post - Anybody in the Bristol area are always welcome to come and have a look at the Ship on a Wednesday night - contact me for details!

As a charity we would be looking to cover the costs of bringing the ship to Penarth and would imagine this would work out at about 20-30 - inc breakfast of course - per person depending on numbers.

Interested parties please reply to this thread so that I can guage the amount of interest - Thanks

That is a very kind offer you are putting out there.
Although Iwill not need accomodation this time, for obvious reasons, I would very much like to see the Pride of Bristol sometime and have a look around.

I am in the passenger boat business, although we do not provide accomodation, we are in the midst of building and operating a restaurant / booze cruise boat by this summer.

Anyway, back to your boat, good on ya.
Hope people take you up on the offer before booking into hotels.
(then there is always crash space at my house for a few - cost to be sorted - how many pints? - but no breakfast!)

Folks,

I can't decide where must I make my reservation. Pride of Bristol or Nadia's home. Tough decision.

Very interesting how people keep deviating from the topics on these various threads.

With the P of B you know you got a berth, with my house you may get the floor - main difference.

I think with the P of B making the effort to come across the Channel and offering their spacious accomodation, people should take them up on their offer ( I may even book in/on)

Seriously, looks like my house will be for the overspill!

Anyway,whatever, my castle is your castle!!!

The PoB sticks with the nautical theme!

Go on - you know it makes sense!

Jools

Msg via Jools (he called me today and was going to update this, may have forgotten before going on holiday!!!)

Jools has had 5 of his 12 available bunks taken up by other ribsters coming to Cardiff for the SOC send off.
That means there are still: 7 bunks / berths left.
The cost is 25.00 / per person and that would be for the Saturday night - the Pride of Bristol is only arrivng in Cardiff on the Saturday lunchtime.
So...anyone interested, reply here, call Jools or call me over the next week till he gets back - 07811553925.

*Jools, if you read this before you go...hope the above is okay*
