Hi Steve, After years of planing... Im still not sure if I do the trip to the Coastal Quebec and Newfoundland this winter for real. I got some more time to spare. But I read about the Shutdown of Apollo in 2014 from January 2nd until the 8th and we would take the ferry on december 29th. Arriving with the Bella Desagnes and leaving Blanc-Sablon on the Apollo, in this time of year, how would you recommendes with limited time? Sorry I asked you 2 years ago but I'm still thinking about it! ;-) br Stefan Paul Beesley on Mar 09, 2015 13:59 (4 years ago)
What on earth were you doing up there, Steve?

Yes Tomas, it is still running! I've taken it and it still has German writing on the walls and European electrical outlets. :-)

Wow, is she still around? Sailed between my hometown of Sandefjord Norway and Hundested Denmark ages ago. Nice photos!
