On July 23, 2022, and after a 2-month intensive upgrading and dry docking at Neos Molos (Drapetsona) and Piraeus, HSC SANTA IRINI (former ALMUDAINA DOS) of Horizon Sea Lines arrived at the port of Heraklion.

The ship was purchased last May for daily cruises on the Heraklion (Crete) – Santorini run. For that purpose, she was chartered to Panellenic Lines.

Significant Greek businessmen, as well as the company CTRS – Cretan Transportation Services (Heraklion Bus Company) participate in Panellenic Lines.

Kerkyra Seaways’s HERMES was transferred at Neos Molos (Drapetsona) in order to continue her refit/conversion. The vessel was purchased from Nankai Ferry (Japan) in October 2019 and arrived in Greece on 3 March 2020.

The pandemic delayed her conversion, which began in late May and continues to this day. HERMES is expected to enter service at the end of January 2021 and she will be probably introduced on the Corfu-Igoumenitsa line.
