No idea why they're so late in releasing schedules but its been like that for many years. As for the January sailings being "fully booked" there's absolutely no chance of that  ;D

Returned from Ireland this friday from Rosslare, travelled on Stena Europe. Rosslare port had 3 Stena liveried ships in port at the time. Europe, Vinga and the Kerry. Is this a regular sight now to see 3 Stena ships in port at one time?? Is the Kerry still chartered to DFDS, couldn't remember

Kerry is on charter to DFDS.

Here's one of my pics from 28th September last year showing the 3 Stena ships Vinga, Horizon and Europe in Rosslare

Thats a great read. Thank you for sharing it. I haven't sailed on the Europe since 2010. Hopefully get back on her soon. She really is the last of the line.

Just came across this on YouTube, featuring Commodore John Barry statue, the Leopard and Duke of Rothesay and the old Rosslare boarding system.
