Estrid is off Dublin bay at anchor with the afternoon rotation out of Dublin cancelled today Easter Sunday. According to Stena’s website ferry check the reason is due weather! Is the Estrid more limiting in bad weather compared to Superfast X? Or is this a ‘Tactical’ cancellation due the current climate and booked load?

I’m no expert but X seemed to sail more regularly regardless of the conditions and I’ve been on her when she had to wait for terminal 3 to free up at Holyhead in a strong westerly?

Just interested to know whether the E Flexers are not as agile during inclement conditions.

There were and are no weather warnings in place its more likely capacity no need for her to run. Stena Line will no longer be taking foot pax on either the 0230 Adventurer departure from Holyhead or the 2030 Estrid departure from Holyhead "until further notice". Will give them plenty of time and opportunity to ,clean, the filthy clapped out old buses they've been using to herd passengers onto the ships for years.
