On October 28, 2013, while entering into port Trelleborg, due to strong winds the ship turned and its stern landed on the opposite pier.

On May 13, 2004, after a failure of the portside thruster, the propeller pod had to be dismantled at Blohm+Voss shipyard. Subsequently, the vessel operated with only one propulsion unit, and all harbor operations had to be assisted by tugboats. In September 2004, a new pod was installed during drydock at Neptun shipyard (Rostock). The original pod was re-installed in 2006 at Oresund shipyard (Landskrona, Sweden). The ferry resumed regular service on April 23, 2006.
