Falster was built in 1975 for GT-Ruten AS. However, she was sold a few months later to Rederi AB Nordö, a company specialized in chartering out ships. Hence, she was chartered to Brittany Ferries in August 1975 to operate services between Roscoff and Plymouth, whilst Penn Ar Bed was transferred to the newly-established route lining Plymouth and Saint-Malo. Falster was then renamed Prince de Bretagne.
However, due to poor sea-keeping and small passenger capacity, Prince de Bretagne's charter was not renewed for the following year.
Then, she was chartered out to a lot of other operators, and sold also numerous times. She was sold at a time to Hobart Shipping Company which chartered her out between 1990 and 2004 to Ventouris Ferries, which renamed her Vega. Vega was scrapped in Alang in 2004.
