On June 27, 2018, the shipowner Irish Ferries canceled all pre-scheduled Ulysses ferry crossings on the Dublin-Holyhead route until further notice. In an official statement, the company announced that the cancellations were due to a technical fault (issue with a propeller shaft) requiring drydock repairs.
On the Dublin-Holyhead route, Ulysses was temporarily replaced by the fleet mate Epsilon (deployed on the Dublin-Cherbourg route) starting from June 29 until Ulysses returns from drydock. Because of Epsilon's re-deployment, the ship's June 29-30 crossings (Dublin-Cherbourg) were also canceled.
Affected passengers were re-booked on other ships or departure dates.
