TOM SAWYER obviously runs the Karlshamn - Klaipéda - Karlshamn service of MARCO POLO now, until the latter returns.

viewtopic.php?p=29751&hilit=marco+polo#p29751 But that didn't happen, so something must have been more difficult to repair than expected. I'm still surprised that they bothered to repair her, considering her size, lacking bow-loading ability, age and damages.

According to the GST she is still at the same quay in Gdánsk. But maybe she is finally getting prepaired to be put into service?

Marco Polo now scheduled to leave Travemunde for Trelleborg on June 25th at 15:45. I guess this is the first commercial service since the accident...

And then she obviously will do a round-trip to Travemünde, before leaving Trelleborg for Klaipéda via Karlshamn (!) 27th at 11.30 a.m.
