The Norman Voyager is a passenger and vehicle ferry currently operated by Celtic Link Ferries on their route from Rosslare to Cherbourg.


The Norman Voyager is one of fourteen similar vessels built by Cantiere Navale Visentini. The vessel was delivered in October 2008 to Epic Shipping Ltd[2].

The ship was initially chartered to LD Lines to inaugurate a Le Havre - Rosslare route in competition with Celtic Link Ferries service from Cherbourg.

In 2009 Celtic Link Ferries announced[3] they were chartering the vessel to replace the MS Diplomat on their Rosslare - Cherbourg route.
