Reports that the former Stena Cambria (ex St Anselm) together with her old running mate Stena Hibernia (ex Columbia) are on their way to the breakers at Alang India. Two fantastic ships which I traveled on countless times during the 1990's.

Destination of Altair is now Murmagao in southern India.

Altair now appears to be anchored off Sri Lanka, Whilst Masarrah remains on the Red Sea, seemingly still operational.

Presumably this means after Inishmore is modified, She will be totally dedicated to Dover/Calais as she will not be able to connect with any of the Irish Sea linkspans.

Is there enough standing room, port vehicles, staff etc at Rosslare to cover all this extra capacity? From what I have read they are more than doubling throughput virtually overnight.

Stena Embla cleared the Straights of Gibralter earlier and now on the last leg of her delivery voyage. Apparently aiming for Holyhead for some reason. Due alongside 10.00hrs 2nd January.

Wind is only 20kts so it shouldn't be too bad. That said, my sister went to Isle of Man a couple of years ago on sister ship Ben-my-Chree in fresh weather and she said it was a terrible passage. I suppose the smaller ships are bound to be thrown around more.

Perhaps it is the direction the weather is coming from that makes berthing difficult.

Galicia is out and about, heading for Qingdao, about 200 miles down the coast from Weihei. Presumably its on sea trials, or possibly to bunker for her delivery voyage?

I've not seen her listed on AIS yet.

Does anybody know when Galicia and Stena Embla are due to make their delivery journeys?

My guess it will be auctioned off. Perhaps they will offer it to Brittany Ferries first at the original full contract price. Assuming they decline they then may get it for a bargain at the auction. However, if its a Dutch Auction, (where the price starts ridiculously high, then decreases until a bid is made), it could go for more than the contract price. Heavily depends on the interest in her and who has the dosh.

Any idea when the chartered E-flexer from Stena is due and how she will slot in and affect the rosters? Given that Honfleur will not be arriving has this altered the original plan for deployments?

On the other hand, what would it cost to install a LNG refueling facility in Dublin - or could she be refulled directly from a LNG tanker?

Really seems a bit silly to convert her - wherever she ends up.

Seems a long way to go for a wash 'n' brush up!

Unless (pure speculation) she may be may be relieving one of the behemoths on the Harwich - Hook run afterwards?

Nordica has probably been to Birkenhead to do berthing trials. I guess she's going to deputise for Stena Mersey in the near future.

On her way back to Holyhead now.
