Bookings are now open for Ireland-UK for 2019. No mention of Epsilon on any route, Swift makes her return on the 12th April taking  2 hours and 15 minutes to make the crossing she's on the route until the 30th September. No France timetable yet.

As previously notified then.  Will change when the second new build arrives of course. 

As posted in the other thread, strong rumours being repeated by usually very reliable people that there's an agreement to sell Oscar already in place.

Hi folks looking for an educated guess. I want to travel on Oscar Wilde before it disappears.

I was considering doing it next week. 
Looking at the booking engine Oscar is covering Ulysses and there is no sailings on the Epsilon roster. 

What are the chances of this changing to WB Yeats covering Ulysses and IF opening bookings for the 08.30 ex Holyhead with Oscar.

I would say the chances are very high that WBY will cover for ULY and OW will operate in place of EPS

WB Yeats has not received all her certs yet she has a big EU inspection on Wednesday if all goes well she might start appearing on the schedules.
