As reported by [What's up, Dock?], the RoRo ferry service operating between the Bali ports of Kusamba and Nusa Penida was interrupted when the ship, Nusa Jaya Abadi, departed for Surabaya to undergo an annual docking on November 13, 2010.

As a result, the large number of passengers travelling between Bali and the nearby island of Nusa Penida have been forced to use local boats which are often dangerously overloaded.

Fortunately, the promised replacement vessel redeployed from Ternate has now arrived in Bali and commenced service on Friday, November 19, 2010.

Bali Post reports that the replacement vessel is being allowed to run two round trips each day when, in fact, repeated requests form the Nusa Jaya Abadi to increase its daily frequency from one to two were always rejected, claiming two trips would constitute too much competition for local boat operators in Padang Bai.

The replacement vessel departs Bali at 6:00 am and 11:00 am every day. The ships has a reduced capacity in comparison with the Nusa Jaya Abadi. The replacement ship is capable of carrying only 12 vehicles and 60 passengers. Due to these capacity issues, port authorities are giving first priority to trucks carrying basic goods and supplies from Bali to Nusa Penida.

The Nusa Jaya Abadi will remain in dock in Surabaya until December 3, 2010, when it is scheduled to return to service between Kusama and Nusa Penida.
