We booked the French ferry, DFDS rather than P&O, to see how they fared with my vegan diet.
The bar was well stocked but the food consisted of sausage rolls, quiches, pizza, fruit tarts and sponge cakes.
I asked the French bar man if he did coffee with a non dairy milk. He looked at me as if I was mad and said,
“you want milk, you must buy in the shop”.
He obviously hadn’t understood me so I explained, “No I want coffee with milk not from a cow”.
He replied smirking, “You don’t want milk from a cow? What do you want, from a pig?” He obviously thought he was funny.
“No”, I said, pretending to laugh, “no animals, do you have soya?”.
He replied with a curt “non” and went to serve someone else.
After waiting for him to come back, I ended up buying a raspberry tart and just eating the raspberries.
As the only teas they had were fruit teas, (I hate fruit teas), I had to buy an extortionately priced bottle of water.
We do love France but the Ferry service from the UK was not a good experience on my “France Vegan Road Trip”.
Not sure P&O would have done much better, anyone tried it? Let us know.
Saw this funny sign in the loos:
So as long as the objects are English then I am ok?
