They must be confident that the customer base will come back to them after such a long period with no service at all. They must also see no need to bring any kind of replacement in. Seems like they're handing the whole summer trade to Irish Ferries.

Its not that easy to secure any sort of cover given virtually everything that may be suitable for Fishguard is likely occupied at the moment. So, while as you say traffic is currently being handed to Irish Ferries, this is far from an ideal situation for Stena. 

The current plan for STENA EUROPEs repairs does not involve dry docking.

Update from Stena Line:

Unfortunately, due to ongoing repair work to the STENA EUROPE at dry-dock, it has been necessary to cancel further sailings up to and including all sailings on Thursday 3rd June.

Stena Line apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

I wondered where Estrid was going when she steamed north from Rosslare earlier today.  She is now close to Rosslare again this evening.

Europe is still in Belfast.  I guess she will come back south tomorrow to be ready for crossings after the 21st.

Stena Line posted an update stating that repairs would not now be complete until Wednesday 26th May

I think Mega Express 4 will be operating Epsilon's Holyhead schedule. Don't forget that Blue Star 1 is due next month

Has BLUE STAR 1 been officially confirmed by Irish Ferries? I haven?t seen anything official apart from various rumours to date.

Reports online suggest there are technical problems with STENA EDDA and that she won?t release STENA SUPERFAST VIII for dry dock until Friday at the earliest.

I think it is important we remember this is not solely down to Brexit... there are also restrictions on movement across these islands and this is having an impact as well.

Having said that, many Northern Irish hauliers are avoiding the Dublin routes now after a significant move towards them over the last few years.

 
Stena have announced the cancellation of a number of sailings on the Irish Sea this weekend due to the large downturn in business being suffered as a result of brexit. A total of 12 sailings have been cancelled this weekend including the 0800 from Rosslare to Fishguard on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (and obviously the return legs). The 0215 from Dublin to Holyhead on Sunday and Monday have also been cancelled.

Scottish Viking has technical problems and has been out of service since Monday. Stena Nordica will provide cover and then go to Remontowa shipyard for refit.
