UPDATE 16/07/18 Irish Ferries Update - Ulysses Ferry Disruption

UPDATE 16/07/18

"Work continues on Ulysses in dry-dock and it is expected that the repairs are going to take the full two week period as advised. This being the case the Dublin/Cherbourg/Dublin service will likely be cancelled on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd July.

Without question I understand that the absence of Ulysses from the Dublin/Holyhead/Dublin route is causing huge frustration and pressure on your business, your customers business, your teams in offices and professional drivers on the road. Be assured that Ulysses return to service is a top priority for Irish Ferries and my commercial team is heavily focused on trying to assist with your daily requirements although I know we are not giving you the service you either require or deserve. For that I apologise unreservedly and I thank you for your genuine tolerance of us at this time. Ulysses has been a champion in our industry for going on two decades and I am confident that her dependable service and relentless reliability will be proven again before long."

UPDATE 09/07/18

"Ulysses entered drydock in Belfast on 28th June owing to technical difficulties with its Starboard Controllable Pitch Propeller. The investigation and repairs to the vessel were expected to take no longer than 5 days however we have now been informed by service engineers that the issue is more serious than originally anticipated and they expect the vessel will be out of service for a further period of 1 to 2 weeks."

Irish Ferries sincerely apologises for the very serious disruption that Ulysses absence is causing to the freight transport and logistics industry and despite best efforts replacement tonnage cannot be found.
