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.

I am sure it has not escaped someone's eye considering that Brittany Ferries HQ is in Roscoff . The Connemara represents their brand weather or not they own it .

The decision to sell the OW and cancel the previously intended summer only service from Rosslare to Roscoff ( as initially advertised for 2018 prior to the delay of WB) was a decision made directly in reply to the NTA's findings against IF.
To show the contempt in which IF hold their customers and in case anyone doubts the petty mindness of the upper management in IF here is a quote from their annual report,
"Our final vessel the Oscar Wilde is providing drydock cover for the other vessels in our fleet but has not been scheduled for service after March and is offered for charter or sale. While the Group had intended to operate a summer only service on Rosslare/ France with this vessel, these plans were reviewed following the National Transport Authority interpretation of the EU Regulation
covering Sea Passengers. These interpretations are especially penalising for operations out of peripheral ports like Rosslare. The Group has taken the first step to challenging these interpretations through the courts
."

Cabins look really nice, great TV integration. The swirling floor covering are still strange, do they look as bad in reality ?

Not really. They look fine in reality. On the ship in general it has a very modern look about it with lots of subdued colours. The one thing that stood out for me was the lack of outdoor deck space. The only open area is up on deck 11 near the funnel. It's gonna get pretty crowed up there on a warm summers day especially with the lack of seating .

The 5 star cabins on OW are bigger than similar cabins on WBY. But the way the WBY cabins are laid out (and features like having tvs on either side of the divider at the end of the bed ) it doesn't make any difference in reality. We were happy with the size and quality of the cabin.
Here's a few more cabin pics from other angles

Cheers, thanks for pictures. Will miss curtain which divided sitting/sleeping area on OW, very handy when kids sleep time comes around.

True, crew provided by Northern Marine as far as I know. Pity they donít have time to care for the ships appearance.
