OW won't be back she's sold. Innisfree won't be back she's too small.

thats Gas i remember when the innisfree was first in dublin she was nearly too big for the dublin run
now shes too small for rosslare

she is not a cruise ferry in any sense just another RO PAX on an overnight crossing

its a shame irish ferries could do with doing a few crossings with silja line or viking line or color line there are real cruise ferries

the OW is the last of the cruise ferries around here maybe the pont aven is one ive never being on her

By any standard the Pont Aven definitely qualifies as a cruise ferry.

yea she looks like one anyway
think IF are treating IRE-FRANCE as same as if its just short sea crossing

Great ship good layout a throwback to the old ferries of the 80s reminded me a bit of the St Killian, she will be missed
not as much character on the new ferries.

Cropped image of some very fresh paintwork on Oscar wilde . Please note on my previous post is pure speculation but by the picture below it looks promising

defo going by that she seems to be staying in the fleet
cork-roscoff(think port of roscoff confirm termination of irish ferries) or/brest?

I just heard from a reliable source  who has seen the Oscar wilde today.  She has had some New paint work, her name and her Logo have remained and possibly being re painted. As we know I.F. are very tight lipped about it but if  there are any clues  this Probably means she must not going anywhere but where would she be deployed if she is staying in the fleet  ??

ohhh rosslare to where?cherbourg???

Lack of berths in Dublin meant the WB spent the night at anchor just outside the port (quadrant 1) she moved onto berth 49 this morning but will have to move off to let Swift in and out this afternoon. Oscar Wilde is scheduled to leave H&W today destination unknown.
HSC Manannan which is currently in dry dock at Cammel Lair is due in Dublin tomorrow for trials! perhaps she has had some structural work done like new ramps?

OSCAR WILDE DESTINATION SUPPOSED TO BE ROSSLARE
THAT RUMOR CAME FROM ROSSLARE

I some how suspect Irish Ferries will lease out a ferry to Brittany Ferries to meet British Goverments Agreements regarding Brexit,

While Oscar Wilde is available she does not have the freight capacity to meet the requirements.

I would not be surprised if Isle of Inishmore or Epsilon goes on charter to Brittany Ferries with Oscar Wilde taking over Rosslare - Pembroke run for the summer.

god i dont know about that the inishmore is perfect for ross-prembroke she is the workhorse of IF never given any problems
where the OW has struggled on that run plus the double ramps in both ports would be a waste
IF would be crazy to get rid of her and i dont think they will,
the OW is the only ship that will go this year they they are getting rid of ships
she is overnight vessel after all
