    The Brittany Ferries ship the Pont Aven, which generally does the Santander route, has modified it's dog arrangements slightly.

    Those who have used it in the past will remember the exercise area was on the same deck as the kennels. The kennels are still in the same place on deck 9.

    But the exercise area is now on deck 8, by the helipad. There is a new set of stairs which are much better than the old ones to get you down to this area from the upper deck. There is still a bit of room for exercising the dog on deck 9 but much less than there was though we are generally using this with our Charlie at the moment as it is quieter.

    The vessel herself looks a lot different now as there is a big structure around where the funnel used to be within which there is a lot of stainless steel ducts etc, which are the new exhaust scrubbers.
