Oscar 1st sailing Dublin - Holyhead over the Christmas is Friday 22nd December at 10.45, like the last number of years she will only carry foot passengers if the Swift is cancelled.

Epsilon has been taken out of service on the Holyhead - Dublin route since her arrival over the Christmas / New year once one of the other vessels in the fleet Oscar this year arrives onto the route. She normally comes back onto the route during dry docking of Ulysses.

No she is not down to return to the route at all next year.

Let's see what October brings. They are not going to keep a ship & crew for one round trip to France a week.

Running Horizon to Holyhead is like Itish Ferries running Epsilon. It's proven to work.  In order to refit all vessels they are going to have to do more than one change anyway surely?

Stena tug drivers load/unload for Irish Ferries in Holyhead port so they are use to this type stern only loading vessel already. So Irish Ferries did all the ground work for Stena on the Holyhead route.
Err, no.  Stena did run Stena Forwarder back in the day after all!
I think Stena Forwarder was on the run from 2001 – 2003. How many ops staff would remember how to load a vessel they last had on the run 13 years ago.

Any ideas if and when the epsilon will be in dry dock and where.

I see Epsilon is not on the online booking system for 10 days in April. Last crossing Holyhead to Dublin at 08:00 9th April & first crossing 19th April Dublin  to Holyhead at 01:55. she is not doing a Cherbourg crossing both weekends.

Any idea where she is heading?
