Isle of Inishmore heading to Odense.

Perhaps for Scrubber installation.

Epsilon was delayed going into service first due to issues with training and a life boat.

Hopefully Mega Express 4 will not take too long to go into service.

Mega Express 4 has more lane metres than Oscar Wilde had.

She was modified to increase her cabin capacity from 1950 LM to 1400 LM.

She is a sister of the Brittany Ferries Vessel Cap Finist?re.

She has a dip pool on her upper deck and good facilities on board.

The lease is initially for 2 months, however given Covid and Brexit and post covid demand she may hang around for longer.

Irish Ferries are working on a post brexit solution.

They will release plans in the coming days.

Irish Ferries Full timetable will be released in the coming days.

My guess is there may be a surprise in store.

The two ships would be ideal platforms to build upon, given their current freight capacity.

European Seaway could go straight onto Dublin - Cherbourg opposite the Epsilon allowing a daily frequency and Pride of Burgandy could provide refit cover on Dublin - Holyhead allowing Epsilon to continue un-interupted on Dublin - Cherbourg.

Longer term they could have their superstructures modified to increase their cabin and vehicle capacities.

 :( Maybe they are going to lease them to DFDs for Rosslare - Dunkirk Convoy.

Remember Stena Vinga is overweight.

We are comparing apples and cabbages here.

Both Stena and Irish Ferries dont see the investment being worth it. In fact Irish Ferries will run run a freight only service  on Dublin - Cherbourg from 1 Jan 2021 to 25 May 2021 according to current timetables.

The big question will be will there be enough denand for the new DFD service to last beyond easter.

Most probably Irish Ferries will operate a freight only service on Dublin - Cherbourg from end January to 25 May 2021 while Drydocking takes place and IOI goes for Scrubber Installation.

I suspect Covid demand is also factored into this decision.

Irish Ferries Timetable for January is 7 round trips per Forthnight on Dublin - Cherbourg.

The timetable states that the service is a freight service with Cabins available upon boarding.

At the moment Epsilon is doing the sailings. Given the fact that Drydocking is happening i am wondering if Stena Baltica or Stena Energia are being leased in to take over the route until IOI comes back from Scrubber Installation in April 2021.
