The cruise ship operator Viking Lines announced to cancel its four trips between Helsinki and Tallinn scheduled for Tuesday.
The ship authority in a notice on its website late Monday night said that the trips from Helsinki to Tallinn scheduled to operate at 8am and 1pm have been cancelled while trips from Tallinn to Helsinki scheduled to depart at 10:30am and 3:30pm were also cancelled.
The authority regretted for the inconveniences and requested the passengers to reserve a new departure date with same content as the original reservation.
The authority also assured to refund the money and urged the passengers to claim the refund through its website, if the passengers wish.
Earlier, the cruise ship authority on Monday cancelled all of the trips of its vessel FSTR Catamaran between Tallinn and Helsinki due to a technical glitch.
The company, however, replaced the ship by the Tallink M/S Star at 8:15pm from Tallinn to Helsinki, national broadcaster Yle reported.
"There's a motor malfunction that we noticed last night (Sunday). Nothing serious, but it will take an entire day to repair. We decided to take it out of operation," the company's communications director Johanna Boijer-Svahnström told Yle.
Several smaller technical problems also plagued the ship last week, but the problems are not linked in any way, Boijer-Svahnström added.
