It went in for examination and repairs on June 28th with the expectation that it would be in service again by July 4th.
According to the Irish Times, the company reported in a stock exchange update that "the issue is more serious than originally anticipated".
The service engineers said it was likely the vessel will not be on the water again for another two weeks.
“In advance of her return to service, we will adjust the schedules of our other vessels to minimise the disruption to our customers as much as possible.
“The Dublin/Holyhead route will operate with the Epsilon on the Ulysses schedule alongside the Dublin Swift, which will operate additional evening sailings.
On Twitter, the company announced it was receiving a high amount of calls from passengers and were working hard to get through them all.
We are experiencing high levels of calls & messages regarding disrupted sailings, and are working hard to get through them. We will continue to do so until all customers are accommodated. We apologise for this inconvenience. Check here: https://t.co/a1OL0KImZi pic.twitter.com/RxJqoyDvi7
