The Norwegian shipping line will remove the Color Viking ferry from the Sandefjord-Strömstad service and the Color Carrier ro-ro from the Kiel-Oslo one, putting them up for sale.
The company says that high energy prices, macroeconomic uncertainty, and worsened framework conditions have led to the decision.
Color Line adds that other factors came into play, too: halving the tobacco quota for residents of Norway as well as reducing the allowance scheme for Norwegian seafarers in the country's budget for 2023.
Color Carrier will embark on her last journey in Color Line's livery on 14 November 2022, while Color Viking - six days later.
Color Hybrid will continue serving the Sandefjord-Strömstad crossing.
