  1. Stena Line Freight website is showing 1 round trip on a Sunday and Monday.
  2. 14 sailings a week translates as 1 sailing each way per day. They have upped this to 24 sailings a week, 2 round trips a day apart from a Sunday and Monday which the Stene Europe will cover just the 1 round trip.
  3. I think Stena had reduced the amount of sailings with the Stena Europe to 1 round trip a day. It appears for most days now its back to 2 round trips a day.
  4. According to Stena Line on Twitter Stena Estrid will be moving to the Rosslare - Cherbourg service with Stena Horizon moving to Dublin - Holyhead. This is only whilst the traffic levels are still high on the French service. Also says that Stena Horizon could continue the Dublin to Cherbourg service at the weekends from after the last Stena Estrid service next weekend.
  5. Stena Estrid is scheduled to do a Dublin to Cherbourg on the 23rd of January returning on the 24th. This is as well as having the sailing from Rosslare to Cherbourg which is scheduled to be the Stena Horizon.
  6. The finish in them is excellent. Travelled on Estrid when she was covering Belfast - Cairnryan and was thoroughly impressed. Wonder if Stena would look at putting another Visentini opposite the Horizon. As much as the Foreteller can carry more freight the lack of drivers must be costing them. Also wonder where the 240m E Flexes will end up. Only time will tell.
  7. Great pics Chris. Must say I find these vessels very attractive looking.
  8. Just seen a post on Twitter that Stena Embla is going into service between Rosslare and Cherbourg from tomorrow.
  9. I'm pretty sure that's a mistake. If you read it, it says "400 freight or 250 cars". By P&O's wording cars have suddenly become bigger than freight. Also what are they designating freight as? Is it just trailers? Is it truck and trailer?
  10. I think your figures are wrong regarding this. Pride of Rotterdam has 3300 lanemetres and then the dedicated car deck for 250 cars. The Ulysses has 4076 lane metres and can only carry 240 trucks. Where you get your 400 HGV's for the Pride of Rotterdam from I don't know.
  11. https://www.faktaomfartyg.se/european_ambassador_2000.htm Stena Nordica appears to have this extra ramp as well so she can fit certain berths. I wonder if this will disappear when she replaces Stena Baltica.
  12. https://www.niferry.co.uk/stena-vinga-to-replace-stena-nordica-as-irish-sea-relief-vessel/ Yet again the excellent NI Ferry site providing information on a rather unusual vessel coming to the Rosslare to Cherbourg service from next week.
  13. After watching the excellent Norland video I found this on the same channel.
  14. The long corridor is where the Dover gangway attached to the ship for foot passengers.
  15. 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.
  16. @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.
  17. 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
  18. Rosyth to Zeebrugge was 17 hours with Superfast, then went to 20 hours with Norfolk Line.
  19. 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.
  20. Hi folks, regular reader on the forum. Just found this in youtube if anybody is interested.
