  1. I was in my first ever car crash in Cherbourg. We got a taxi from the ferry terminal into the town. Whilst the driver was pointing out some attraction he never realised the car in front of him had stopped and duly ran into the back of it. We sailed on the Superstar Express outbound which was a pretty rough crossing then came back on the Pride of Bilbao.
  2. @Gareth As we were discussing Rosyth - Zeebrugge earlier I found this on YouTube. Gives you an idea of the ships and the passenger numbers. Unfortunately its off a camcorder so the footage isn't the best.
  3. At the end of the Superfast era on the Rosyth - Zeebrugge service it was already down to a one ship service. The Superfast IX had been moved to the Baltic and the Superfast X had been sold. The Blue Star 1 was covering the service. I think the problem with this service was between Superfast and Norfolk Line it was fairly new ships that were placed in the service. Right away you would have to start turning a profit to pay for them. Maybe it would have been more of a success if it had started with older ships that had pretty much paid for themselves. Having tried the service on a number of occasions the Superfasts certainly were impressive. I'm sorry it has been consigned to the history books
  4. Rosyth to Zeebrugge was 17 hours with Superfast, then went to 20 hours with Norfolk Line.
  5. I'm pretty sure the Rosslare - Cherbourg service was operated by the European Diplomat. The Dublin - Cherbourg service was operated with the European Ambassador but only operated at weekends. During the winter I think the Ambassador called into Rosslare on the way to Cherbourg. I'm sure somebody will correct me if that's wrong.
  6. Hi folks, regular reader on the forum. Just found this in youtube if anybody is interested.
