I am sure some hotels in the IFSC got a block booking from Irish Ferries for the period,

This is a high season in Dublin so i would say it was not cheap,
No chance of Irish Ferries paying for hotels, for one the staff are not Irish Ferries employees, they are agency staff, secondly some of them will have been deployed to operate the extra Swift sailing and some may have remained on-board Ulysses.

Where are the Swift crew staying while Ulysses is in belfast then?

Praying all goes well and Ulysses is back in service as planned. Booked to travel Friday as foot passenger on her and cannot stand Epsilon so they only other alternative would be ask for a transfer to Adventurer. Suppose we’ll have to wait till Mon/Tues and see if there’s any update.

Tbh don’t think they’ll even risk the delay and start fixing other minor issues/painting. The hassle Ulysses being out of service has caused them and the delays to other services because of the increased loads has been huge. Heard some stories of passengers booked on orginal Epsilon schedule sailings even being transferred to P&O on the Liverpool-Dublin. It’s just costing them too much and creating so much bad press, alongside the already delayed Yeats which was bad enough

Ulysses is due back on the 4th if it is delayed you will be contacted and transferred onto the Swift Epsilond oes not and has never taken foot pax.

I thought Epsilon used to take foot passengers when the swift was cancelled over xmas? Reckon theres any chance of transfer onto Adventurer as a foot pax?

Anyone know whats happened to the crew? Are they still aboard during dry dock or were they put up in hotels in Dublin with the Swift crew before the ship left for Belfast?

how do shifts work on Ulysses? 1 crew working the 0805 DUB-HOL until the 2055 DUB-HOL when the 2nd crew take over? Captain always seems to be present announcing on the 0805 DUB and 1410 HOL at-least.

Ulysses delayed again tonight and tomorrow passengers transferred to 'alternative' 0230 and 1400 Holyhead sailings (Stena?). Looks like Ulysses maybe docked in Holyhead for repairs or taken out of service to go to be repaired.
