Although the vessel was on charter to a Greek company, ANEK, and operating on a route from Greece to Italy it was owned and registered in Italy, so not a 'Greek Ferry' in that the safety requirements were the responsibility of the Italian authorities and it is being investigated by Italian Judicial bodies.
Sorry if this is a bit picky, but the Greeks might not like it described as a 'Greek Ferry', as under control of Greek maritime authorities, although ANEK might have to take some responsibility for not ensuring the safety standards provided to its passengers.
