On June 23, 2023, Anek Lines’ flagship EL. VENIZELOS will join her fleet mate ELYROS on the classic Piraeus – Chania (Crete) line. The large ship was out of service for almost three years and it was decided to reintroduce her into the Hellenic Coastal Shipping in the beginning of 2023, replacing Blue Star Ferries’ RoPax BLUE GALAXY.

Since February she has been undergoing a full refit, dry docking and engine overhauling at Perama Repair Zone.

On June 20 she successfully underwent her sea trials as well.
