Intermediate ports of call include Enns, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, Turnu Severin, and Vidin. The service will be extended as far as Constanta and Reni, should sufficient demand exist.

Two ro-ro vessels - Jumbo One and Jumbo Two - will operate on the new service. Each vessel is capable of handling loads 70 m long by 19.5 m wide. The maximum permissible load on the ro-ro ramp is 92-tonnes, with a maximum load on deck of 10 tonnes per sq m.

Sailings are expected to commence in June 2015.
