@ Ferryfan, Yes Irish Ferries DO offer day trips on Dublin-Holyhead, 46 euro return, except at Christmas, the fare is increased to 86 euro return.. a quick check on the website under day trips/special offers will confirm this. I tried to do a day trip on Oscar Wilde, but it wasn't available
That's not a day trip it is even advertised as a "foot passenger minicruise" a quick look in a dictionary would confirm this to you. At €48 it would be a very expensive day trip. Stena were doing day trips ex Dublin and Rosslare up to December for €6.50 and from Belfast to Glasgow a day trip costs £10
20.30 Superfast X sailing is delayed tonight (Sunday). A problem with the Stena ramp, I think it is probably the lower ramp as SFX is currently moving berth.
If it was the upper ramp that was damaged we would have loaded through the lowerdeck and driven up.
Definitely port side ramp - not lowering properly to a flat position
Usual full sailing so we may be away by 10.30pm as loading will commence shortly.
Might have knock on effect for Adventurer later if fault is not fixed as she will have to wait for Ulysses
SFX had two cancelled sailings on Sun 7th Aug - 8.55am Holyhead and 15.10 Dublin
Adventurer had a delayed departure of 2.5hrs on Sunday afternoon at Holyhead. SFX blocked a berth so Adventurer had to wait for Ulysses to berth before docking
There were then approx 1400 passengers on board for a delayed return crossing from Dublin picking up usual load + passengers off the cancelled 15.10
It was feared that SFX would have to be drydocked at one point but the technical issue was resolved
