Reduced Belfast to Scotland timetable in operation over 2 weekends in October.
Following swiftly on from Stena Mersey's routine dry-docking this week, news has reached NIFS that it is planned that Stena Superfast VII and Stena Superfast VIII will each be taken out of service for a short period during the weekends of October 9th to 11th (SSF 7), and the 16th - 18th (SSF 8). As a result, a reduced timetable will be in operation, with it planned that the freight only ship Stena Hibernia will operate limited additional freight sailings on these weekends to Cairnryan/LRP. It is understood that this routine maintenance will be conducted alongside at Belfast, and will not require dry-docking of the ships.
