On the 3rd of May 2017 P&O Ferries EUROPEAN SEAWAY arrived in Northern Ireland (and Scotland) for the first time in her 26 year career.  The cross-channel freight ferry is providing refit relief this year on the Larne – Cairnryan route.  The following gallery is of various pictures of her first few days when she conducted numerous berthing trials at both posted.  EUROPEAN SEAWAY entered service with the 20:00 sailing from Larne on 5/5/17, becoming the largest ferry to ever operate from the County Antrim port in the process.  This feature would not have been possible without the contributions of Trevor Kidd, Gary Andrews, and Scott Mackey.
