Grimaldi's new service to Halifax

The January 12 arrival in Halifax of Grimaldi Lines' Grande Napoli presaged a new service that will start in February.

Billed as the first direct Mediterranean to East Coast North America RoRo service the line will have as its port rotation: Gemlik, Turkey / Bar, Croatia / Civitavechia (Rome), Italy / Baltimore / Halifax / Antwerp.
Ships will carry cars, but likely some non-car traffic as well, such as trucks and machinery much like Grimaldi's ACL RoRos do.
At first the service will operate with four ships on a 13 day schedule. Fixed day service is not required in the RoRo business as it is in the container business, but the if successful it is possible the line may add another ship.
