MV Holiday Island
Photo of the MV Holiday Island - a ferry that formerly plied the waters for CN Marine (later Marine Atlantic) between Cape Tormentine, NB and Borden, PEI from 1971 when it was built until the Confederation Bridge was opened in 1997, replacing the NB-PEI ferry crossing. Still serves PEI at the Caribou, NS to Wood Islands, PEI route.
The supplier Mariner Sea was the last ship to sail from Halifax in 2010. She arrived in Halifax on December 12 (in photo above) and fitted out for some specialized cable work, and returned to port December 26. Since then she has unshipped the cable gear, and this afternoon moved to Imperial Oil to take bunkers. This evening she set sail for the port of Nuuk, Greeland.
