Noting the chaos this weekend ... worse things happen at sea.  Even after the weekend if over and trains are back to normal after Monday ...

From the P&O Ventura today ...

Quote
Due to a technical issue which puts a limit on our speed, our arrival into Vigo on Sunday will be delayed by approximately four hours, with an expected arrival time now 12:00 noon. ...

Going forward, our arrival time at Lisbon will now be 12:00 noon [Monday] ...

... it does regrettably mean that we will no longer be calling at Oporto on Tuesday ...

I wouldn’t be too pleased about that, Porto is an amazing place to visit, looking forward to visiting there in June.
