She is en route stopping off at Cherbourg on the 19th December should be in Dublin by late Thursday or Friday. AIS showing her route via the Kiel Canal

She is going around Jutland which makes a lot of sense.

What's the story with the AIS at the moment? WB's position hasn't been updated for 7 hours now.

updated now, she appears to be about to enter the channel. South east of Felixstowe.

And ETA to Cherbourg is now 08:00 on 18/12.

Due in Dublin Thursday morning at around 0830

WB is due to arrive in Rosslare Europort tomorrow Wednesday at 12.00 for berthing trials, given the announcement today that French services from the port are canceled this could mean that WB might enter service providing cover for Inishmore when Ulysses goes for refit, unlikely as this might sound, what better way to train staff, get a ferry operational and get any potential issues sorted out of the Dublin Holyhead spotlight.

WB is due to visit Holyhead for berthing trials today and is now due in Dublin at 0945 tomorrow with tugs on hand for spray salute.
(I think a lot of people would rather have slurry spreaders ready to give the greeting)

Does anyone have any pictures of her in Rosslare?
