The former Stena Navigator (ex Seafrance Manet (SeaFrance), Stena Parisien (Sealink Stena Line), Champs Elysees (SNCF/Sealink) which left the Belfast – Stranraer service when the Stena Superfasts entered service has been renamed again. Until November she had been operating as Balearia’s Daniya (Arabic for Denia) between Denia – San Antonio – Palma, and Denia – San Antonio – Barcelona, however following a change of route to Ceuta – Algeciras she was renamed Poeta López Anglada in November. The ship has retained much of its Stena decor, including the “Curious George” childrens play area and “Barista” coffee lounge. Currently Poeta López Anglada is operating the 2 hour voyage between Alcudia (Majorca) and Ciuadela de Menorca (Minorca) Monday to Saturday, and operates between Barcelona and Menorca at weekends after a further change of route in December.
