P&O’s European Highlander and European Causeway are scheduled to dry dock at Harland and Wolff between 13th of April and 14th of May 2015. Norbay is expected to provide cover with Express also providing one round trip per day to Cairnryan during this period. Sailings ex Larne will be:

04:00, 07:30, 11:59 (fast), 12:00, 16:30, 20:00, and 23:59. Times ex Cairnryan are the same apart from the fast trip, which will depart at 14:00.

Stena’s Stena Superfast VII and VII are expected to dry dock during March for approximately 2 weeks each. Exact dates have yet to be confirmed, however Stena Nordica (ex European Ambassador) is expected to provide cover once she has been relieved by Stena Superfast X (current Dieppe Seaways). Dieppe Seaways is expected to transfer to Stena at the beginning of December and will proceed to Poland for conversion into a Stena ship for the Dublin to Holyhead route.
