The Jean de la Valette has completed its inaugural sailing between Scarborough and Port of Spain on Thursday morning.
The vessel, carrying over 700 passengers and 130 vehicles, took about three hours to arrive at the Port of Port of Spain.
On-site to oversee the operations was Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan, who has so far reported that it was a smooth sailing.
Many said the trip was smooth and exceeded expectations, however, some were dissatisfied with the disembarking arrangements.
