Sailing updates: P&O and Stena Line North Channel services.

In what has been a much more eventful than normal day for North Channel ferries, P&O are now running with delays.  The 20:00 sailings from both Larne and Cairnryan have yet to depart at the time of writing (23:05), with what appears to be some sort of technical failure with one of the vessels.  This is despite EUROPEAN SEAWAY having been loaded at Larne for hours.  P&O’s service disruption follows Stena Line’s earlier technical problems which now appear to have been resolved (see below).

Following the cancellation of the 19:30 departures from both Belfast and Loch Ryan Port (Cairnryan), Stena Line advise that their services are back on schedule with the 23:00 departures (the 23:30 ex LRP is leaving at 23:00 with delayed traffic from the earlier sailing).  As a result the vessels are on opposite sides of the North Channel to normal with STENA SUPERFAST VII at Belfast and STENA SUPERFAST VIII at Loch Ryan Port.
