8th February 2005 A cable snapped on one of the link spans in Calais whilst vehicles were disembarking from the Pride of Burgundy. The berth was out of action, whilst at the same time another berth was undergoing maintenance work. Due to the restriction on available berths severe delays occurred and the Pride of Burgundy was switched to operate between Dover and Zeebrugge on a temporary basis.
27th October 2012 Whilst departing berth 9 in Calais during high winds the ship made contact wit the MyFerryLink vessel Berlioz. Damage was sustained to the starboard bridge wing and forward superstructure. Following temporary repairs the vessel re-entered service the same day.
19th October 2013 Reportedly suffered rudder failure and collided with a pier at the entrance to the Port of Calais. It was thought that the cause was debris caused by dredging outside the port.
