Trinacria and her sister Partenope are utilized by TTT Lines (Tomasos Transport & Tourism) on an overnight intra-Italy service between Catania and Naples. Following the completion on these two sisters, the same shipyard has delivered a whopping 16 ships based on the same design (though with increasing number of changes) to a number of different companies.
