Brittany Ferries Kerry is on the way to Gibraltar  (ais search for AF Michela still) currently off the Italian coast near Bari.

Due 13th October presumably for bunkers.

Will be interesting to see what livery has been applied

I believe the yard at Rijeka was only used for the handover back to Stena RoRo and Northern Marine.  In terms of livery I expect it will be basic given she is on a one year charter.  There have been suggestions that she isnít in great condition internally after her stint with Adria, so perhaps some refurbishment might be undertaken.  Plenty of time to do so in any case!

Also a couple of images here https://www.niferry.co.uk/latest-brittany-ferries-ship-on-way-santander/ .  Clearly theyíve just removed the branding from the hull and funnel and added the Brittany Ferries logo - about all we can expect for a one year charter.

Sure looks like that, would imagine it will need to arrive early in Cork as authorities probably want to carry out an inspection before it enters service, Connemara was delayed a few days by this, though assuming crew from Connemara are probably transferring over, might be easier to manage.

There are Stena crew already onboard KERRY so probably won't be all of them transferring from CONNEMARA.  If KERRY comes into service at the start of November there's still a full 2 weeks from today.  Contrary to what I posted earlier there was some additional technical work done at Rijeka.  I believe KERRY will run with scrubbers btw, with some work still needed to be done at Santander (though I don't think this will require a dry dock).  CONNEMARA is expected to dry dock from the 31st Oct until November 13th (at Santander) according to the guys over at BF Enthusiasts.  She had previously been on the schedule until Nov 4th of course.

I think Steven probably means Northern Marine Management crew. The ship is Stena RoRo owned and crewed by NMM which is a Stena group company.

Hope it sails for you.  I see still not selling tickets online.

You will be able to give the verdict on comparing the Connemara and Kerry :-).

Speaking of 2020 bookings I've booked Cork Roscoff last week out Monday 30th June on Kerry and back Friday 10th July on Pont Aven. There's been a big increase in the deposit. Had to pay 50% non refundable deposit  :(
