  1. She was handed over to Stena yesterday. https://www.niferry.co.uk/stena-line-takes-delivery-second-new-belfast-liverpool-ferry/
  2. Tony someone else asked on here but got no answer so did you get permission from the person who took the photo to put it on here? it may be wise to Quote on the post with photo who gave you permission(if they did) their name.
  3. Looks like England will be going into a full lockdown as early as next week going by the News websites this morning. Bojo trying to save Christmas so they say!!!!!
  4. See that PA sailing from Plymouth to Roscoff last night was Cancelled no doubt due to weather. Also the sailing from Plymouth to Roscoff tonight at 10pm will now arrive Roscoff at 2.30pm on Thursday which does seem very odd as making it a 15 hour crossing. could that be down to weather or the berth not being free till 2.30pm?
  5. on one of the photos on the niferry link a few posts back you can see a couple of people standing right at front of her bow as they start to tow her out. So would they travel on her all the way or somehow get off then onto a small boat as i would have thought that there is no power on her?
  6. Going by the Freight timetable she is going to Cherbourg tonight.
  7. if you could stay at home for 2 weeks when you got back from say a Mini Cruise would you still go at the moment? i am asking as i want to do a DFDS Mini cruise from Newcastle while the ships are not as full and could stay at home for the 14 days when got back but something in my head is asking me is it the right thing to do? what are peoples views as i am sure there are people out there which will still go away and then stay home for 14 days when got back. also could Border force stop anyone from doing a trip like a Mini cruise even if DFDS are still selling them?
  8. They are still selling Mini Cruises for this week which i would had though they would have stopped selling like P&O have. have to say i need a break and would take up a mini cruise with them this week but can not do the 14 days staying at home.
  9. Can we take it that BF will not be running the Christmas and New Year cruises this year? Looking at the timetables for PA she still has the 3 nights for Christmas and New year free but by then they could still not have ships full so would it be worth them no doing them this year?
  10. St Malo sailings have now gone till July 17th.
  11. lONA has been built. she has now has been moved round to Rotterdam. she is getting nearer!!!!
  12. Sailings have been cancelled up to June 15th which looks like they were done today as yesterday they were up till June 1st. Also on the freight they have got the freight timetables up till June 15th.
  13. When sailings can start again how long would it take BF to get ships ready again? i take it that it would be just a couple of days to get restocked and sail to the right ports.
  14. Yes sorry to say but do think that will happen sometime this week. such a sad time at the moment and sometimes think its all a dream.
  15. We had a Cruise booked with MSC next month which was cancelled by them and they will no refund and only will give a voucher. they all seem to think they all do not need to stick to the law.
  16. Bretagne has just left St Malo heading to Portsmouth due in at 7am. so looks like she will stay in Portsmouth.
  17. Do we know where Bretagne will be going after she unloads in Portsmouth tomorrow morning?
  18. Well today Stena Edda goes into service tonight from Liverpool at 9.30pm. i will be on her so will get some photos and post on here.
  19. Great shot but Which ships bow is that?
  20. is anyone having issues getting onto FSG's building hall webcam? it keeps coming up with a login box asking for a username and password but number 2 webcam is working ok.
  21. The sailing that BDS is now doing to Bilbao later tonight was not on there when i looked early yesterday morning so have they just added that sailing?
  22. Going back to the Portsmouth to Le Havre service which has been cancelled on Boxing day and back again on Dec 27th that would have been ran by BDS. i see from the timetables that her sailing this morning down to Spain has been cancelled so i dont think it would be because she would have been in the wrong place as from this morning she is not in service till Dec 28th from Portsmouth to Spain so she will be in Portsmouth from this morning till Dec 28th. maybe low numbers on the cancelled sailings so saying its to do with the weather. where is she going to go till then?
  23. Have to say i know we do not know the reasons for it but at this time of year its a bit out of order for crew to start refusing to work for whatever reason. we had it with PA crew a few years ago at Christmas time so hope its not CF time this year.
  24. Why have the crew refused to work? also is it the hotel crew or bridge crew?
  25. Her 21.30 sailing to Le-Havre was cancelled due to Strike action as is her 17.00 sailing back to Portsmouth today.
