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