Stena Line's newest ferry has begun sailing the Dublin to Holyhead route on the Irish Sea.
The 215m (705ft) Stena Estrid is described as "one of the most advanced vessels in operation", with space to carry 120 cars and 1,000 passengers.
The RoPax vessel (Roll-on, Roll-off Passenger Ferry) will now make two daily return trips on the route, with a crossing time of three hours and 15 minutes.
Fares currently start from €104 each-way for a motorist with car.
Facilities on board include the ship’s Sky Bar, two 'Happy World' children’s play areas, two movie lounges, a larger Truckers' lounge, Taste restaurant and bigger shopping area.
