Has anyone who has travelled so far on the Cherbourg route any experience of the Inisfree club lounge?  Getting inconsistent info from IF as to whether you can order food from the menu there on the route to France and we will be travelling with our son who has autism and was hoping to eat there in a less packed venue than Boylans Brasserie.

Also has anyone any idea of the menu options yet in Lady Gregory and are there DVD players in the TVs in the cabins?  Thanks  :)

Very excited for our trip next week so trying to tie up loose ends now!

Just noticed LIDL are selling portable DVD with screen for €60 this morning.

Looks like another launching will be occurring over the next few days!

I see the naming stand has appeared this morning.

One more Ro - RO Freighter to be built for Siam Group and IF New Build 2 "JB Shaw" will have its keel laid.

I've been watching this one regularly since they laid the keel in December. They basically started the day WBY was handed over and the MARIA GRAZIA ONORATO was launched.  So approximately 4 months, if they start the 2nd SIEM immediately we could be looking at the start of IF 2 late August?

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?

WB moved out ok south of Howth Head. Swift leaving now so presume WB will move back in to 49 for 16:00 departure to Cherbourg.

OW still appears to be in the dry dock in H&W @ 13:45.

As far as I know she is not on the France run until next week I think. Isle of Inishmore still in DD until Sunday.
Still showing as sailing this afternoon from Dublin to Cherbourg.

Don't fancy those white lines on the floor with a rough sea and a few glasses of Vin rouge consumed! :-)

I'm on and in the Club Lounge. We are the first customers! Booked on Oscar Wilde - horror - but turned up to find the Yeats was our ferry tonight.
Smells like a new car.
Chaos at the check in desk so we blagged into Club lounge and paid there for bit of luxury. No one else here so all the lovely food and wine is ours.
The red wine is very very good.
Not done a tour yet. Maybe to nice here to move.


..........however we have not actually sailed yet!!  It's 30 minutes late and counting.....

Listed here http://booking.dublinport.ie/webx/ as 21:45 departure

Irish Ferries day they are unlikely to operate a Rosslare to France service in 2019

https://www.irishferries.com/uk-en/news-listing/information-rosslare-france-2019/

18/12/2018 12:00

Irish Ferries wish to inform their customers that they are unlikely to operate a service between Rosslare and France in 2019. We continue to keep this situation under review.

A majority of our customers have a clear preference for the more central location and easy access of Dublin. Our new W.B. Yeats ship will operate from Dublin to Cherbourg, with 20% greater passenger capacity up to 4 days per week and is now available for booking on Irishferries.com.

 

Irish Ferries souhaite informer ses clients qu'il est peu probable qu'ils exploitent un service entre la France et Rosslare en 2019. Nous continuons de suivre de près cette situation.

Notre nouveau navire le W.B. Yeats assurera la ligne Cherbourg - Dublin, avec une capacité de passagers accrue de 20%, jusqu’à 4 jours par semaine et est désormais disponible à la réservation sur irishferries.fr.



That's a disaster for the wine trip weekend away! Cherbourg just isn't the same!
