Stena Estrid !Strange choice of name for ship destined for Ireland-UK service video of launch/float ceremony here http://play.yunxi.tv/livestream/flash?id=e10124545fcd4675a6d8210f111a365d  Be warned it's long and extremely boring.

I think (unfortunately) the days of retaining old names and/or making them route specific, eg. Stena Cambria; Stena Caledonia etc. are gone, if only for the reason of redeployment of vessels across routes.  I expect that most of the new vessel's names will be Scandanavian linked.

Looking at Estrid's family tree one ponders whether we could also see a Stena Ingvar and Stena Ingefast  :)

I'm led to believe the plan is for the Stena Line E-Flexer's to get 'E' names (not necessarily Swedish either).  That could change of course.
