You wait all year for some fabulous interior shots of a ferry and then we get two sets of on board reports in as many days, please see below link to a fantastic image gallery on the Stena Adventurer from the team at NIferry:

Stena Scandica has finally left Turkey this morning, image of the finished ferry posted by Sedef on LinkedIn

Stena Baltica in the background

Given the length of time it was in the shipyard, amazing they did not get a chance to paint the top decks above the passenger accommodation !

thanks for posting

very interesting addition to starboard side at the bow, aside for the hideous cow catcher (Tug well positioned !) there is an addition to help with port fit.

some images are posted on the Twitter

Nice look at the Stena Adventurer in this blog post, unfortunately not too many people will have experienced the revamped on board offering in the last 18 months !! They have introduced some of the on board concepts from the E-Flexer vessels

You can compare the revamped interior with Scott Mackeys excellent Flickr Album of the Stena Adventurer here:

Inishmore has left the shipyard in Denmark, currently showing Gothenburg as destination (presumably for fuel), though could possibly cross paths with the Stena Jutlandica (a half sister from the same shipyard). Photo opportunities a plenty if that happens.

Next stop one assumes are Dover & Calais for ramp trials and tests, then probably Dunkerque shipyard if any tweaks are needed.

Interesting images posted on two websites

More on Europe here

https://www.westerntelegraph.co.uk/news/business/19370775.stena-europe-due-back-fishguard-rosslare-route-june-24/

Also Europe has turned around on its berth in Belfast, either a sign of progress of maybe giving the paintwork a refresh.

What is wrong with Stena Europe?? About time for Stena to invest in a new vessel or upgrade the linkspan at Fishguard for other vessels within their fleet to dock there. Is it just the linkspan that prevents most of Stena's vessels from docking there or is it something else.

Europe to the best of our knowledge has experienced a bow door failure of some kind, one assumes the inner bow door has broken and given that it is of mature years and quite a complex multi fold door, parts are probably not available off the shelf as such. Fixing takes time.

As for Fishguard, the estimated cost of the redevelopment came in at 20 million Sterling, Stena had budgeted 5/6 million.

Details of the proposed revamp here

Hopefully Europe will be back in 10 days as still on booking system from June 24th.

Stena Horizon filling in on Dublin - Holyhead tonight, instead of laying over in Rosslare as normal on a Monday night, the Stena Horizon is heading to Holyhead to take a Holyhead- Dublin- Holyhead sailing to allow the Stena Estrid to get some scheduled maintenance carried out.

Then returning back to Rosslare to take its sailing to Cherbourg tomorrow evening.

Stena Europe update - still not moved from position on ship repair quay at H&W Belfast.
