Moby SPL ferry to serve as temporary floating hotel in Murmansk

SPL Princess Anastasia

Taking into account the absence of precise deadlines for the resumption of regular ferry services between Saint Petersburg and the Baltic Sea ports due to the restrictions imposed by the Government of the Russian Federation and EU countries to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, Malta-registered operator Moby SPL has decided to temporarily use the Ro-Pax ferry SPL Princess Anastasia as a floating hotel in another commercial project in Murmansk, Russia.

The decision on cancelling cruises for the period after May 13, 2020, will be made with regard to the official information on the enforced restrictions in SPL Princess Anastasia‘s countries of call.

Moby SPL may bring a similar passenger vessel as a substitute to continue scheduled operations.

The company said that, upon receiving specific deadlines for the removal of existing restrictions, it will take all necessary measures to ensure SPL Princess Anastasia‘s return to service at the earliest opportunity.
