Irish Ferries helplines to reopen amid cancelled bookings chaos Up to 19,000 customers have been affected by the cancellation of all sailings by the ferry WB Yeats for this summer. The cancellations relate to planned sailings on the WB Yeats ferry, as the vessel is now unlikely to commence sailing on the Dublin/Holyhead route until September.The company is now advising customers as to alternative options, including direct sailings on its Oscar Wilde ship or sailing to the UK and then to France.Customers who choose that option will be reimbursed the cost of their fuel requirements from the port of arrival in the UK to the port of arrival in France.For customers who choose to instead cancel, a full refund is available.center_img 15 Comments Share29 Tweet Email1 Short URL 12,456 Views Source: Irish Ferries/Twitter Jun 13th 2018, 7:25 AM last_img read more
