Does anyone have any pictures of her in Rosslare?
Not yet but here's one of her at Cherbourg yesterday

She's heading there for berthing trials after the Epsilon departs Holyhead for her 20:15 sailing. WB Yeats will then head to Dublin following her stop in Holyhead with her scheduled arrival currently 09:45 tomorrow (Thursday) morning.

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.
Seems she may have just been having trials to continue Epsilon's trade car run - she didn't go to Pembroke but did go to Holyhead

Probably the lowest key new arrival in Dublin with the shine completely taken off the event by the Rosslare announcement. WB is being moved to Cruise18 this afternoon so anyone wanting a good view should head for the Eastlink bridge.

Took this picture yesterday at the East link bridge where she is moored. Looks very impressive.

Yeatsy has moved from the East Link Bridge and is currently on Ulysses linkspan.

Itís not as if all their routes go to Ireland either... oh wait

Perhaps if none of their routes involved Ireland you would have a point!  Iím pretty sure that not every member of staff working for British Airways is British, nor every member of staff at Air France French!  Bottom line is if you donít like it donít travel with them. 

For those interested the W.B Yeats tech spec was updated on NIFS last week (thereís also another pic here of her in Rosslare, not that it really looks much different from any other pic of her to be honest.  Canít post here as itís not mine and donít have permission :) )
