I took my first trip on the Dublin Swift last week. When I got to the port the WB which was due to depart at 1600 was berthed at cruise 34. Epsilon berthed at 51A with SFX berthed at 51.
Boarding to the Swift was by foot walking from the terminal to the bow ramp. I booked club class which overlooked the bow and had great views. Seating was very comfortable with fold down tables and usb points, there are seats with tables on the front row and at the sides. Departure was bang on time and as we were reversing off the berth I could see the WB reversing down the river waiting to take our place on berth 49 prior to her 1600 departure. Weather en route was fair a bit misty but calm however the vessel seemed to pitch quite a bit at top speed and it was quite difficult to walk around. The two deck areas are very small with the port side set aside for smokers.
We arrived slightly ahead of schedule and it was interesting to watch the stern ramp dock at the berth. It unfolds and almost as soon as it touched the berth the cars were rolling off.
