And the reason? Fuel surcharges imposed by Brussels!:Angry::Doh::Angry:

I know this will come as a great disappointment to all the UKIP supporters but this has nothing to do with Brussels. The adoption of low sulpher fuels by shipping is a result of an international agreement.

Here is a US document which discusses it. http://www2.epa.gov/enforcement/marpol-annex-vi

And not before time. Travelling to Plymouth on the ferry from Spain last month you could see a great yellow trail stretching through the air behind the ship from the engine exhaust.

If there is demand I guess someone will start a new service. Hull - Rotterdam is about the best available I think now for anyone in the north wanting to get to northern Europe with least driving.
