Not Ferry Well

It's been a difficult start for Ferry company, Balearia's new boat the Al Sabini, which was brought into service on the Palma - Ibiza - Denia run last week.

It's been a difficult start for Ferry company, Balearia's new boat the Al Sabini, which was brought into service on the Palma - Ibiza - Denia run last week.

Like most new ventures, there are bound to be teething problems, and the Al Sabini suffered a minor toothache on Friday! At eight o'clock, (shame it wasn't 2.30) the motors which enable the super fast ferry to 'park' suffered an electrical fault and the ship was left floundering in Ibiza harbour.

While technicians solve the problem, sister ship Federico Garcia Lorca, has been pulled off the Tangiers - Algeciras route to replace it.
