Thanks Captain Cadet re earlier questions.

Nice photos there.

Incidentally the Waverley was sailing down the Irish Sea when I looked on Marine AIS a short time ago.

captain cadet, id say that she will be scraped since the Irish Ferries vessel Normandy was scraped a few years ago and she was the same age as the Stena Europe. I was talking to stena line customer service today and they said that she would be possibly replaced in the next 2-3 months. and i asked them what would be the replacement vessel and they said that the stena nordica will be just standing in until they get a permanent vessel and they said something about it could be possibly the norman trader. but this might not be true as they are  not certain yet...

So if the Nordica temporarily covers the Fishguard route which ship will cover the Norica on the Dublin run??

while nordica is running between rosslare & fishguard, the adventurer & ulysses will carry her passengers & freight.
