Revised timetable extended

We will be answering amendment requests in order of sailing date to make sure we respond in time for your journey

As a result of technical issues on our largest ferry, Victoria of Wight, we have extended our revised timetable until Tuesday, 13 July 2021. We are incredibly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Engineers have carried out a full investigation of the issues surrounding the mechanical failure that affected one of the engines on board and identified the repair work that needs to be done. We have taken the decision to keep Victoria of Wight out of service to ensure that work can be completed in time for the school holidays. Our engineering team are working hard to address the problem and she will return to schedule as soon as possible.

The Portsmouth – Fishbourne route will continue using our St Clare and St Faith ferries during this period.
