All departures on Color Line's Superspeed 2 route between Norway and Denmark will be cancelled until Friday due to a collision at the weekend.


Color Line's Superspeed 2 ferry has had to go to the dry docks in Frederikshavn in Denmark to have an assessment carried out on the dent in its hull it sustained when it hit a breakwater in Hirtshals on Saturday.  

As a result, ferry services between Larvik and Hirtshals will be cancelled until Friday, the transport company said Tuesday. 

"Work is done there as quickly as possible. At the same time, we are concerned that this should be done thoroughly and properly, and the current estimate is that the ship should be ready and will be able to operate as normal from Friday," Color Line's executive vice president for communications and public relations Erik Brynhildsbakken told Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet. 

No one was injured in the collision, with all damage above the water line. 

The boat's trip from Hirtshals to Larvik on Saturday evening was canceled after the collision, and all departures on Sunday were also cancelled.

Those who have booked tickets for the service have been rebooked for the Superspeed 1 service between Hirtshals and Kristianstad.
