It just stroke me that it doesn't say Unity Line on the hull side of EPSILON, as seen on the image above.

Yeah, it doesn't look good. When Epsilon was in the repair shipyard in Szczecin, the weather conditions were terrible, which made it difficult to paint the logo. This was postponed until the next shipyard visit.

Reminds me of how long it took before the TT-ferries AKKA, TINKER BELL and PETER PAN got their images.

Another funny detail: As the EuroAfrica's funnels are yellow to the left and blue to the right on both the port and starboard side, the backside of the funnel (on f.ex. GALILEUSZ and COPERNICUS) is divided, with a blue port side and yellow starboard side. Not so on EPSILON, where the entire backside is blue.

EPSILON fully loaded indeed. The two lorries on the ramp are not on their way up to upper deck, they are parked there.

Maybe so, but you should be discussing this in "Promenade deck", "Our forums".

They use the shared trading name Unity Line in official marketing for their ferry business. The EuroAfrica name remains relevant for their other shipping interests.

Regardless, it's no less 'misleading' than P&O for example.

@hhvferry, I believe that @eepoxi means that EuroAfrica is not Scandinavian, but Polish, and does therefore not belong to "Scandinavian Ferries".

Please clarify, is the name of the company misleading or the forum name?
