Guess what the rolling stop off of Galle in Sri Lanka was for , Estrid done the same during her delivery voyage .

Dublin Port booking shows Estrid returning to Dublin on January 8thI noticed that recently , listed for berthing at Ocean Pier .
Flag change because of Brexit - yes, but can someone provide an explanation of why Brexit makes it necessary?Basically it was because they want their ships under a EU flag for operational reasons as opposed to a UK flag due to the UK being out of the EU . You have to remember there is the reason given and the real reason . Brexit presented an opportunity for some companies to make changes that would have been difficult for them to make before , to them Brexit has been a blessing in disguise .
Can anyone tell me what is revolutionary about this ship. Maybe more economical but otherwise what?The flag change to Cyprus was for operational reasons due to Brexit , all Stena ferries will be flagged in EU countries going forward , same too for P&O .
Passenger accommodation looks small, very little outside deck space, otherwise just a more modern but more bland version of the current Stena interior design.
What’s better in this ship than the Superfast x - nothing as far as I can see!
Very disappointing the loss of Cardiff as a port of registry - nobproper explanation as to why Limassol.
Homecoming ...she is not going to CyprusWell with all the other ferries in Dublin flying the Cypriot it may feel like it's home .
Well she already completed berthing trials at Pembroke , she berthed stern in .They also said WB Yeats would not fit Pembroke Dock.
We might find out more tomorrow morning.
They must have found a way as she’s timetabled to cover Inishmore.
Did you mean to say " do cancel the contract " not don't .Hull 777 due for delivery in "late" 2020
Seriously doubt that. Work seems to be skeleton staff based. I wouldn't be surprised if ICG don't cancel the contract for 777, and follow Stena and P&O's lead and go for a Chinese yard. Secure funding from elsewhere. At current rate ICG would be lucky to have 777 by 2025!!!
Honfleur seems a good 5 - 6 months away from delivery.
Thank youWhey would there be Stena crew on board . This is Brittany Ferries operation .
I think Steven probably means Northern Marine Management crew. The ship is Stena RoRo owned and crewed by NMM which is a Stena group company.
