Looks like Blue Star one is off for a week for unscheduled maintenance.

Now in Dunkerque at DAMEN defo unscheduled as IF seem to prefer H&W for work for the Irish Sea fleet but the Superfast VIII is in the dry dock. This might also explain why the Stena Nordica has not gone back to Gdansk for refit, the Europe is having to stay put on the Fishguard-Roslare route to cover for the Blue Star 1 when she was probably scheduled to cover for the Estrid in Dublin.

Stena Line Freighttimetable was not updated before Thursday 3.nov to Stena Estrid cover for Stena Superfast VIII. And Stena Nordica was not updated to cover Stena Estrid. So Superfast VIII drydock was not planned.

Stena Nordica is planed to Travem√ľnde-Liepaja to Thursday 10.nov, so it was only short refit for Stena Nordica in Gdynia, Poland.

There were no cancellations for Stena Europe on the Rosslare-Fishgard route, for this weekend in advance.

I suspect that Nordica will head off soon and Europe will be called to cover in Dublin with no servies between Rosslare and Pembrokshrie until either the Superfast VIII or Blue Star 1 returns to service. I doubt Stena will want a 1 ship service in Dublin and they definately want a 2 ship service on the North Channel.

Stena Estrid is due back in Holyhead tomorrow night as SVIII is out of dry dock and is due to return to service early tomorrow morning.
