Dom takes to the high seas, shepherding passengers and freight on the crucial ferry link between Northern Ireland and the UK mainland. His mentor is operations manager Howard Hillis, who has worked at Belfast harbour for the last 21 years. Dom is thrown in at the deep end, spending 24 hours at sea, learning the ropes alongside the captain and many of his crew, before transferring to the historic Harland & Wolff dockyards, where the Titanic was built, to assist with the essential maintenance of a ship in dry dock. Can he keep things shipshape, or will he end up all at sea, in one of the UK?s most important transport infrastructure operations?

For someone like me who has never had the opportunity to see behind the scenes I found that interesting.

Just finished watching, actually very good show, was interesting to see behind the scenes on Estrid from bridge to cabins to kennels to car deck was very good, think they could have got more from drydock on Superfast VIII but obviously only so much they can show.

Great to see all those areas we don?t get to experience as customers but for the crew it?s their side of the ferry.

Same here especially on a new ship like Stena Estrid.

Thanks again to @giftgrub for the heads up!
