Ferry service between P.E.I and N.S. will not be running over the weekend.

Mark Wilson, Senior Vice President of Northumberland Ferries Limited, stated: “MV Confederation’s mechanical issue is expected to be resolved over the weekend. The required parts are due to arrive on Saturday, and an expedited repair, followed by extensive testing will see the vessel back in service early next week. Service remains suspended through Saturday and Sunday.

The second vessel for the 2023 peak operating season, MV Saaremaa 1, is scheduled to enter service by mid-July. NFL crew departed yesterday to join the vessel in Quebec for the transit. MV Saaremaa 1 is expected to arrive late on Monday, July 9, and the remaining crew will be trained and final preparations will be completed as quickly as possible in order to safely enter service.

We deeply regret this ongoing inconvenience during this peak tourism season in Atlantic Canada. We are making every effort to safely resume service as soon as possible.”

They say all customers who have purchased a ticket for this weekend, including July 9, will be issued a refund.
