Oh believe me, I have REALLY tried..The tunnel prices change day by day and which day of the week you want to travel. Do a few comparisons for different days and you will see the differences. Also the times you wish to travel makes a big difference.
There have been restrictions in EU waters on the amount of sulphur allowed in fuel used by ships for several years, but the amount allowed has been coming down. As of 1 Jan this year it came down from 1% to 0.1%. These limits are for the Baltic, North Sea and English Channel. Global shipping is still chugging around with in some case fuels with over 4%.If I remember an article I read a couple of months back, our friends in the EU have stipulated that all EU registered ships operating in/from European ports have to use a special fuel, I think it became law on 1st Jan ( rest of the world have till 2020 to comply) this fuel is not compatible with present engines so very expensive modifications have to be done to engines to comply.
Someone correct me if I have got it wrong

Oh believe me, I have REALLY tried..
Every day of the week and just about any old hour from the middle of the night to the middle of the day..
Just too expensive
OK, just checked again in case I was going batchy !!
Here is a copy and paste of the prices..
Sorry for the weird format...... it is how it comes out when copied and pasted
But as you can see, even at BEST it is £144.. compared to the £96 offering from P and O that aint exactly a bargain ! Almost £50 difference :-(
