The additional staterooms means that the cruise ship will be operated as a "night’ ferry". The vessel will be also reflagged to France and fitted with SOx scrubbers (air pollution control devices). The drydock will be in Greece.

Currently, the 2002-built ship has a max-capacity 1200 passengers and 500 cars, and operates on the Ireland-Wales ferry route Dublin-Holyhead (crossing time 3 hours).
