She will not sail to cherbourg empty,

The freight companies will be banging on the door for an uplift out of Dublin or Rosslare on 29th february.

All of Oscar Wilde's sailings up until February 28th are cancelled - presumably she will sail direct to Cherbourg from Belfast to pick up the schedule from Cherbourg on March 1st.
Don't see why. Sure she has to pass both Dublin and Rosslare on the way!

There is no shortage of freight companies who can save fuel costs taking the direct route to france and avoid the drive across england and wales,

Well actually that sailing has now also been cancelled so it seems that she will go direct from Belfast to Rosslare for the sailing on the 2nd......hope so anyway as I'm booked on that sailing.

I heard from a friend in Belfast harbour that Oscar Wilde is leaving today.

Phew! Thanks - was starting to get a bit nervous even though the sailing is showing "on time" on the IF site.

Oscar Wilde left dry dock and due in Rosslare tomorrow morning.

Someone has posted on the 'Ferries and Ships of the Irish Sea & Beyond' Facebook group, that the Jonathan Swift will be leaving Irish Ferries in September. She will apparently be going to Balleria in Ibiza on a full time charter.

Does anybody know if this is true?

Apparently Swift and Epsilon to be replaced by former Superfast VI the Bimini Superfast in Sept according to that Facebook thread, as a PLC would be amazed at IF letting this info sneak out ahead of any announcement, while it us possible would have thought unlikely As Superfast VI is a long distance ferry with way too many Berths and huge passenger capacity for the central corridor. Also would be replacing a fuel miser in the Epsilon with a fuel hungry Superfast.

Don't think the fat lady has sung just yet for Cats on the Irish Sea. Apart from the fact that Swift does very well, particularly on her morning rotation and apparently operates at a profit she provides much needed capacity on the corridor, particularly seasonally. 

On the speed point, she passed the Kish lighthouse this morning at 39.5 knots so there's life in the old dog yet  :)

In actual Fleet news, Oscar Wilde due to leave Belfast in a few minutes and showing arrival into Rosslare around 9am tomorrow, images from Belfast indicate a partial repaint during refit, showing marks on starboard side of hull lowdown and shed structure behind funnel seems to have been missed.

Sounds like a load of b***ocks to me.  One of the reasons I don't much bother with that group is the amount of absolute c**p that gets posted on it!
