These freighter vessels carry containers and also a lot of general cargo, therefore the stay in ports vary and the schedule is not very exact. Also Additional ports may be called on very short notice, for example Le Havre, Leixoes or Vigo.
Departures: There is one sailing (sometimes two) per month. Bookings are accepted for departure in a month only (departure date between 1st and 31st of a month) as these vessels are not sailing on a regular basis.
Two of the vessels have no pool.
