In a nice change, the Bilbao bridge tied up the the west end of Fairview Cove backwards. Ships usually tie up front to sea, but Bilbao Bridge likely requires some sort of work to be done necessitating the backwards docking.
The Ship is Running for the Alliance’s AL6 Route. She is scheduled to sail tonight.
The third Call for Yang-Ming Happened today, and The Arrival was during Daylight hours. The first 2 calls to Fairview Cove had arrivals after dark, and departures before 8am. The YM Evolution is the third call on The Alliance’s AL1 Service, which is currently served by all Yang Ming vessels.
YM Essence Sailed early this morning concluding the first call for the Alliances AL1 Service. AL1 is served exclusively by Yang-ming Vessels, and also will have calls from YM Express, YM Evolution and YM Enlightenment.

Her Arrival and departure times did not avail herself to a photo.
The Alliance made its first call of the AL6 Service today with the Arrival of the K-Line Ship Brevik Bridge to Fairview Cove. The AL 6 is a new service for the Alliance, and for Halifax. It roughly mirrors the current ZIM and Melfi Services that call on Halifax, though those both service the Caribbean, which this does not. The routing is Livorno – La Spezia – Genoa – Fos – Barcelona – Valencia – Salerno – Halifax – New York – Norfolk – Savannah – Salerno – Valencia – Livorno
AL 6 looks to be exclusively served by the K-Line Service. Other ships serving this route include Budapest Bridge, Berlin Bridge, Bilbao Bridge, and Brotonne Bridge
