More ferry disruption

Tonight’s  southbound sailing of NorthLink ferry Hjaltland will depart at 4pm due to a poor forecast. The arrival time into Aberdeen in subject to delay.

The northbound sailing of Hrossey from Aberdeen will only go to Kirkwall, and the vessel will return to Aberdeen on Friday night.

    As before mentioned about the northlink ferry’s being dubbed Caribbean cruisers, i do not believe the masters of the vessels are uncertified towards dealing with our rough weather, however they do make there own jedgement on behalf of the crew and the passengers aboard…i for one would rather cross on rough seas than a “plain sailing”. I have and always will have every respect in the crews aboard the vessels during sailings, even though they just get you there. Remember the wrecked trailers and vehicles aboard? The gambler machine aboard flying across the deck on one of the first sailings? Both unprepared for our weathers….
