Norway has introduced new infection control measures for at least two weeks.

Color Line has therefore decided to withdraw cruise ferry COLOR MAGIC between Oslo and Kiel until further notice.

COLOR FANTASY has previously been taken out of service on this route.

Freight continues to be handled by roro COLOR CARRIER between Oslo and Kiel, and ropaxes SUPERSPEED 1 and 2 between Kristiansand, Larvik and Hirtshals.

Lacking an important part of its income, Color Line finds itself forced to announce redundancies of another nearly 500 employees in addition to the around 1,000 who have already been laid off, said CEO Trond Kleivdal.
