P&O Ferries refit relief vessel for Larne this year, the German-built Dover – Calais freight ferry EUROPEAN SEAWAY, left Calais earlier today with a destination of Larne. The 180m long Schichau-Seebeckwerft built vessel will operate the Larne – Cairnryan route in place of first EUROPEAN HIGHLANDER then EUROPEAN CAUSEWAY whilst they go to Cammell-Laird (Birkenhead) for refit and dry docking. This will be the first time the vessel has visited either Larne or Cairnryan, and she will be the largest vessel to ever operate between the ports. You can track the progress of EUROPEAN SEAWAY below. At present it is expected that she will arrive in Larne for the first time around 8am on Wednesday morning (3/5/17), with her first services from the port expected to be at the weekend.
