Just when you thought you might have seen the last of L. D. Lines on the English Channel, the tenacious operator quickly leapt in (as they have done many times in the past) to fill the gap left by Brittany Ferries on the Poole/Santander route. It was a case of "goodbye" Cotentin (destined for a charter to Stena Line) and "hello" Norman Asturias, which is seen here making her maiden arrival at Poole on 5th November 2013. She is one of the many Italian-built sisterships of the Visentini production line.
