Went out on the Europe on the Monday before the lockdown in March 2020, I think it was the 9th. There were a good few chaps heading to Cheltenham. There was a rather uneasy feeling on the ship, nobody really knew about social distancing, infected surfaces etc. Did a couple of days walking on the coastal path and returned on the Wednesday. I recall sitting in the minibus that brought us from the ship to the harbour complex in Rosslare and thinking was it wise to be so close to other people? Well the world has turned and we have learned a lot since, ferries seem to manage social distancing pretty well and meanwhile Stena Europe goes on largely untroubled.
Thanks giftgrub for the link to the report. Brought back fond memories of travelling on the Normandy and having a few pints in that huge bar/ entertainment section, happy days.
