On December 31, 2009, due to harsh weather, the passengers from North Sydney NS were stuck on the ship for ~30 hours as disembarkation in Port aux Basque NF was postponed. Note: the scheduled crossing time North Sydney-Port aux Basque  is only 6,5 hours.

As wind speeds were up to 45 mph / 75 kph, the Captain decided to wait until they subside. Curiously, at the same time, another passenger ferry from Nova Scotia berthed in and then left from Port aux Basque.

High winds pushed it against the berth's fender system. The ferry was out of service until December 23.
