The Merrion Lounge / Carnival Vista - lifted out of water

Stunning video of Carnival Vista being lifted out of the sea by a heavy lift ship.

Just amazing what can be done when your main drydock is damaged.

Never had Stena branding on front of vessel before, only Irish Sea based ferry not to have this.

Coming soon to the Irish Sea Southern Corridor the Stena Europe.

Freshly painted and branded with current Stena Line livery for the first time, with Stena Line now branded below bridge.

Made it down to Ringaskiddy on Saturday evening as Armorique was coming in, very interesting ferry, not as big as I thought it was from the pictures but a very impressive back up for the Pont Aven.

Plenty of bikers and cars waiting to travel, nice boost for the local pub with stunning weather, Armorique crew must think Ireland has the best weather ! Both of its arrivals have had perfect conditions.

Pont Aven expected back next weekend.

Pont Aven has left Brest ready to return to service, couple of changes to schedule, main one being Portsmouth sailings now depart from Plymouth to shorten the crossing distance as service speed is reduced due to operational reasons of only three engines available.

Due again this Saturday as Pont Aven still in Brest getting some work done. Arrival will be 8, spaces available on both Roscoff- Cork and Cork -Roscoff crossings.

Going to head to Ringaskiddy for a look, to see this ferry up close, amazed it only has 1,100 lane meters of car deck space, same as Stena Europe before latest refit.

Technical issue with Nordica this afternoon

https://www.westerntelegraph.co.uk/news/17621444.stena-nordicas-return-to-fishguard-harbour-sparks-concern/

It did crossing in 2hr30 after this was resolved, not a bad recovery.

To be fair it is not standard food they are serving for 60 per person, would not be for everyone but it is not designed to be.

However as a comparison on Pont Aven

Seems to be a high price premium on WBY.

If you check Jörgen's profile on FB you'll find a few more photos from the refit. Under the surveillance by managers from Gothenburg apparently.

Nice one well spotted
