Great images, looks very impressive for one of the oldest in their fleet, very well looked after. Thanks for posting.

Not previously mentioned here , the vessel that inaugurated the Cork - Roscoff service MV Armorique (not to be confused with the current Armorique) while operating as Mustikha Kencana II was destroyed by fire and sank while operating the Surabaya - Makassar route in 2011 , shame as it was a beautiful classic car ferry , but I suppose would have hit the beech by now anyway had it not been lost at sea.

Pont Aven still out of service following propeller shaft problem.

Pont-Aven sailings to and from Cork/Roscoff this weekend cancelled.

Pont Aven back on the Roscoff/Cork run again. Few pics of her arriving in Cork harbour this morning. Still can't get used to the funnel  :'(

Thank you. The funnel is absolutely hideous and horrendous; they have ruined a lovely looking ship.  Surely there could have been a more aesthetically pleasing way to fit the scrubbers?

It depends on the ship, in comparison, you'd hardly notice the Normandie had work done for example...

That's true, Kieran, which begs the question: why couldn't the Pont Aven's work be as, relatively, unobstrusive as the Normandie's?

Nice pic of the Normandie.

Depends very much on the ship in question, existing emission levels, and the chosen system, etc.  Some engine types may need more "correction" than others, and some funnel casings will have more space in them (or the ship will have more space available close by in a less visually offensive location).  At least she doesn't look as bad as some of DFDS' efforts though!
