April 2002

Prins Albert, Wisteria (ex Prinses Maria Esmeralda) and Reine Astrid at Oostende (B) in March 1995.   RMTís fateful decision to move from Dover to Ramsgate contributed to the eventual downfall of the company.   Prins Albert still operates on the service as Eurovoyager for Trans Europa Ferries.

Stena Sandwich: Koningin Beatrix dwarfs P&Oís European Pathfinder and Stena Lynx III at Rosslare (IRL) on an unpromising evening in April 1999.   The Beatrix, having spent less than five years on the service to Fishguard, is to be replaced by the smaller Stena Europe in early 2002.
During the winter months in the 1970ís, it wasnít unusual to see all three vessels berthed at Stranraer harbour on Sundays.   Dalriada, Antrim Princess and Ailsa Princess - the seventies stalwarts - are seen in April 1973 on the return of the Ailsa Princess from her annual refit.
