In his words, the ferry was scheduled to leave for Kiel on Wednesday. Some passengers have been offered seats on another ferry or refunds.

A report on a possible fire on the DFDS Seaways ferry was received on Tuesday afternoon after smoke was spotted coming out of the engine compartment. The ferry arrived in Klaipėda late on Tuesday, using one of its engines. All 335 people onboard, mainly German citizens, were unharmed.
