It has to be the Normandy - Oscar Wilde is currently on passage to Brest ETA 16:00 UTC - presumably for bow door repairs.  ;)

Just back home from an overnight drive from London via Pembroke. First time on the Inishmore since 2001 and first time driving rather than flying home!

Passenger areas still look factory fresh despite now pushing 16 yrs old. Not the biggest fan of rough seas so was fearing the worst. Despite the winds, there was only slight pitching for most of the crossing which was impressive and loads of room to spread out to catch some sleep. All in all job well done by IF. Thumbs up to the crew for navigating a gusty arrival at Rosslare too.

In terms of load,deck 5 was full roughly half and half with cars and hauliers, not sure how full deck 3 was or whether the load included the Fishguard customers.

Two great images of the Oscar Wilde posted on Rosslare Maritime facebook site, no indication of when they were taken but dramatic images regardless:

Another view of the Normandy on google maps, this time from Singapore, nearer the end here at Sembawang shipyard.

In the middle is fleetmate ARV1

Medical incident onboard caused the delay.
