Ferry påsejlet: All flights cancelled

The new ferry 'Prince' departing first times from Rostock in the northeast of Germany at 22 on Friday night.

It happens after Scandlines' normal ferry operating between Rostock and Gedser has been påsejlet earlier in the day.

It confirms communications manager at Scandlines to Ekstra Bladet.

'Scandlines Berlin' (the name of the ferry, ed.) has been påsejlet immediately after the departure from Rostock, a smaller vessel, which lost control, says Anette Ulstrup Svendsen.

- In connection with the collision, there are some cracks that must be repaired before it is allowed to sail on. The damage that occurred, must be repaired, and the authorities must then approve and release the ship.

The Danish shipping company assures, however, that there has been no injury in the collision. The ferry is now returned to the northern German port city.

- the Authorities are on board the ferry, and they must first give their approval before we can once again sail, says kommunikationschefen.

- the Authorities check that the ferry meets all safety measures. It is the most important thing is that there is no risk, she explains.

All the guests were on the way to Gedser on Falster, will instead have to make use of Scandlines' departure from Puttgarden, which sail to Rødby.

- It is of course deeply regrettable, but unfortunately it is not something that we control, says Anette Ulstrup Svendsen.

It remains to be seen, where major damage has happened on the ship, which collided with Scandlines Berlin.

Scandlines cancels all departures of passengers on the ferry route between Gedser and Rostock until Saturday at 13. It informs the company in a press release.

the Collision happened at 15.30-time, inform the shipping company.
