Morning services on Sunday, February 11, follow the regular schedule, transitioning to the weekly schedule from 12:00hrs onwards.

For Nadur Carnival in Gozo from Friday 9th February to Sunday 11th February, special services will be introduced, including direct routes from Victoria to Nadur, as well as shuttles between Mgarr Ferry and Nadur, and late-night services.

Additionally, a special service (S222 and S41) will operate from Cirkewwa Terminal to various locations across Malta, synchronised with Gozo Channel Ferry arrivals.
