Built as Prins Filip for the RTM Dover-Oostende service in 1991, although she did not enter service until 1992. Withdrawn 1997 when RTM ceased operations. Bought by a Stena Group company in 1998, and chartered to P&O Stena Line as Stena Royal for freight operations between Dover and Zeebrugge. Charter extended and renamed POSL Aquitaine. In 1999 began to carry passengers again on the Dover-Calais route. Transferred to P&O in August 2002 and renamed Pride of Aquitaine. Received new P&O livery for 2003 season. Chartered by P&O from Stena Line until 2005, she was retired early in May 2005. In October 2005 she started a new service from le Havre to Portsmouth as Norman Spirit, operated by LD Lines. In 2010-2011 she was chartered to Trans Europa Ferries for service between Ramsgate-Ostend, also serving at Dover with this name.
