Anyone knows whats happening to captain/officers on OW when sold? will they be re deployed onto other ships (probably in less senior position if so if joining)?

Also over xmas do the crew stay onboard? can't imagine IF flying them home just for a few days

If EPSILON can cover for Swift on the last week of July I’d say it isn’t worth running swift in the first place to be honest, given EPSILON’s passenger capacity and that the whole point of the swift service is about moving passengers!  This is the time of year the swift service should really be earning its keep.  If she’s not being covered by a basic
 Ropax because she’s unable to operate for whatever reason, then passenger numbers mustn’t be looking too good!
 

In any case, I highly doubt commercially minded ICG just pulled one of their vessels off for the hell of it when they’ve just been forced to hand much of their custom to their largest competitor for a month!!!  I’m sure the shareholders would be delighted.

It doesn’t cost them any money at all to cancel the Swift and in fact saves them money as passenger don’t get refunded for being moved off the swift onto the Ulysses or Epsilon and they are saving on running costs! After the last couple of weeks they’re probably looking to save money, so if everyone can be accommodated on Ulysses it makes sense to cancel the Swift

Personally I don’t think it Irish Ferries were that lucky and that the return of Ulysses and cancellation of Swift coincided. I think they cancelled (not due to weather) to give her a few days off after being so heavily loaded

So what happened this morning? Where did Epsilon berth when Ulysses arrived? Did it make the 0805 and if so did Epsilon just sit in Dublin until it’s normal 2pm?

Anyone know where Epsilon will berth on arrival from Holyhead if Ulysses is on 49?? Also has the crew been onboard Ulysses all this time or have they been put up in Dublin and will they reboard?? Would be interested to see if the captain makes an announcement on the first sailing saying anything...or is even present on the 0805 after navigating down from belfast all night!

Just read an update on fb that IF have advised freight companies return is now Friday. Ulysses also taken off booking engine till friday
According to the freight timetable she’s back with the 08:05 ex Dub.  However she’s not currently expected to leave Belfast until Thursday night.  Even then that’s unconfirmed, so it’s a case of wait and see I suppose.  It’s not a job that can be rushed.

wheres the info for when she's destined to leave belfast?
