During last month, Minoan Lines’ KNOSSOS PALACE was eventually transferred to Grimaldi Euromed s.p.a for EUR 74 million. The large cruise ferry was mutually exchanged with her close sister CRUISE BONARIA, which currently plies on the Livorno-Olbia line.

KNOSSOS PALACE will be renamed and launched in Italy while CRUISE BONARIA (ex- Olympia Palace) will be introduced on the Piraeus-Heraklion line under Minoan Lines’ livery as the new KNOSSOS PALACE. She will operate on this route together with her sister FESTOS PALACE (ex-Europa Palace/Mykonos Palace).
