Yesterday’s issues with P&O‘s Larne to Cairnryan service appear to yet be resolved, with both EUROPEAN HIGHLANDER and EUROPEAN SEAWAY still running behind schedule.  As yet it is still unclear what has caused the delays, which started with EUROPEAN HIGHLANDER sailing from Cairnryan some 6 hours late last night.  This follows Stena Line having used the P&O owned port for a time yesterday to berth their Superfast sisters.  This is understood to have been due to a problem with the ramp at their own Loch Ryan Port.

At the time of writing (15:35) it looks extremely unlikely that todays 16:30 departures will be on-time, with both vessels mid-channel (running around an hour late), despite P&O’s own twitter feed reporting the sailings are on-time.

Screenshot of P&O’s twitter update (posted seconds before) at approx 15:30 on 7/6/17.

If you are due to travel today, please contact your chosen operator directly for the latest travel information.

EDIT:  P&O twitter feed has now been updated to say sailings are now running an hour late but to checkin as normal incase they make up time.
