Ulysses is now back from refit and the Isle of Inishmore and johnthan swift are in liverpool. The Oscar Wild should be covering the Pembroke- Rosslair crossing until the Isle of Inishmore is back on th 25th i think.

From BFEnthusiasts site from Seashore member

The possible fleet combinations are really getting very strange, the might just leave everything as is:

On Wikipedia it mentions that the Stena Germanica and Stena Scandinavica cruise ferries are to move to the Poland route in 2010. I've not seen any announcements about this or can't find any info on here or other sites. Is this just a rumour?

It also mentions that Stena Baltica (ex-Konningen Beatrix) will be moving, to where it doesn't say. It also says that the Stena Europe is likely to be moving back to Scandinavia? What will replace the Europe?

I'd read that Stena Hollandica and Stena Britannica were due to move to Poland route when the new ships arrive at Harwich. They can't fit into Dublin, Stranrear or Fleetwood because they are so long, but would Hollandica fit into Fishguard and Rosslare?

Where are they going to get cruise ferries for the Gothenburg-Kiel route? Or had traffic dived on that route? Their competitors on similar north>south routes in that area (Color Line and DFDS) both have big cruise ferries with small car decks and lots of cabins. Bilbao going there?

Im not to sure that the Stena Europe will be leaving after all.

The Stena Europe is currently in dry dock in belfast, where she will remain until the 18th of January. Also the Ulysses is in Birkenhead undergoing her annual refit so the Isle Of Inishmoor has gone up to holly head to take over her route, therefore there is no service in Pembroke.

Here are a few screen-shots of the Lynx coming into berth, you can also see the Ulysses in the background.

It's probably not turned off but there is no receiver to get the ais signal.

The explorer is starting on the 26th May rather than the 27/28th June. The lynx is now in h&w.

I can understand Stena's recuctance to take the Lynx out of service if at all possible , since they have'nt said exactly whats wrong with the Lynx it maybe something Stena feel they can deal with "on the run" so to speak (Stena engineers are quite talented after all)

I think the problem has something to do with the oil tanks and contamination. Fixing this lead to delays, staff not being payed ect..

On the IFE homepage the “Irish Ferries‘‘ link under the “Irish Sea Operators‘‘ does not work and gives a 404 error.
Hope you can fix this.
