Probably more in common with Baltic Queen, Victoria I, and Romantika than anything else.  Likewise Barfleur and Normandie also have similarities in profile.

Seems Tallink have opted not to take up the option of a sister to Megastar.  Seems there will be job losses at the yard as a result.

The question now is would Stena or Irish Ferries take up the slot opportunity,

My thoughts as well.  They'd need to be at the final stages of signing the paperwork as well.

Maybe P&O could order another Spirit to replace one of those rust buckets they still have running to Calais?  Just photocopy the plans and dey are good

The rust buckets are looking very smart after their dry-docking i'll have you know ;). Pride of Kent is looking like new! Though I have heard she is having problems with her gearbox :-\. The aging process!
