  1. Hi Matt.
    The Cézanne looks very run down. Sailed on her a lot of times, many times by accident.
    And although she wasn’t my favourite, it is sad to see that she is in such a state.

  2. The Cézanne is in a terrible state, a shame because back in 1990’s when she was SNCF’s / Sealink’s Fiesta she looked great and realy challanged P&O’s Pride of Dover. I say Seafrance will probaly go bust and so do many of my freinds, unless they quickley improve vessel maintenance.

  3. The Cezanne has not been in operation on the Dover-Calais route with SeaFrance since the beginning of 2009. This vessel is berthed up awaiting sale
