OW has arrived into Belfast this morning.
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.
Posted some photos from onboard here feel free...
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
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!
For anyone who hasn't being following it, the folks at the german ship enthusiast forum believe that WB Yeats is to leave Flensburg on Sunday morning, first to go to a dry dock for the hull to be dolled up a bit (pretty much 1:1 translation of the text in German!) and then to Liverpool for final fitting out work.
Wheres its going.... we need to pay attention to the AIS info at the weekend to find that out !
The source seems to be reliable as they predicted the ship adjacent to WB Yeats would be moving from its position this morning, and indeed that's exactly what happened.
Addicted to that camera stream now!
