Your guide to Ireland's ferry services
News:Welcome to the Irish Ferries Enthusiasts forum.
The Stena Superfast X sailings attract good loads.
A few days ago, did not know position so fleet that has BaleÓria, with ferries moored as the "Poet" and waiting for the incorporation of the Ship "DÚnia Ciutat Creative" we are now seeing, with the latest opening of new routes BaleÓria, of the need to incorporate new units. On May 31, is scheduled the first test of the new route between Valencia and Mostaganem in Algeria and everything looks to be the "Bahama Mama" in charge of covering the new service, the "Poet" is a daytime ferry and uncomfortable when journeys exceed four hours, perhaps another possibility for this line could be the "Nissos Chios" To all this we must add the intention by BaleÓria, settling in Almeria, where so far, Trasmediterrßnea, has operated very quietly, which has the hours counted if BaleÓria finally comes to compete on the route Nador, which for the moment, there is no confirmation by the Dianense shipping company, like the Naviera Armas Canaria, which itself has already build in the Almeria port and also the possibility of the Italian Grandi Navi Veloci (GNV). The Almeria-Nador route is one that has greater acceptance and movement of passenger and cargo lines from the mainland north of South Africa and the cake will have many more servings. BaleÓria boat intended that this new option Almeria to Nador ?, if you skip the "Bahama" Strait for the Valencia-Mostaganem, the "Poet" It sure is relieved, but which reinforces the "Passio" during the OPE. The "Creative DÚnia Ciutat" "ex-Scandola" Ports IB is requested to perform primarily the direct route Barcelona-Ciutadella, with a stopover in Alcudia, for the summer, then in theory Barcelona Ibiza. Besides all this, I am clear that the "Avemar Dos" will leave the Caribbean, probably once the OPE and where I think BaleÓria you may already have the substitute searched for September, which is none other than the well Austal "Jonathan Swift "but I have not confirmed it. Interesting, very interesting the summer season is presented with new openings of several routes by BaleÓria, Weapons and to the Italian (CNG) can be encouraged to undertake new projects, the strange remains that in Baleares not between a third operator, this if it is rare, with the brutal provisions that exist for this year.http://ferrybalear.blogspot.co.uk
One rumour before Christmas was that swift had been sold and IF had sourced a large ferry capable of travelling to Holyhead in 2 hours 30 minutes.After that there was no further mention of it.

I could see one of the Gotland pair being used on Rosslare - Pembroke with Isle of Innishmore moving north to Dublin
