MS SeaFrance Molière entered service for Superfast Ferries as Superfast 10 in February 2002 on the Hanko-Rostock route. She remained on that route until April 2002, when she was laid up at HDW Kiel. In May 2002 she re-entered service, now on the Rosyth-Zeebrugge route. In February 2004 the Superfast X was rebuilt at Fosen Mekaniske Verksted, Fosen, Norway with additional passenger berths. In August 2006 Superfast Ferries sold the Superfast X to Veolia Transport for €112 million. The ship was renamed Jean Nicoli.

On March 2007 the Jean Nicoli made crossings from Le Havre to Marseille, carrying cars onboard. During April of the same year she was chartered to COTUNAV for traffic from Italy and France to Tunisia.

At the end of April she was laid up, initially at La Seyne, later at Marseille. From 8 September until 2 October 2007 she was chartered to ANEK Lines for service on their PatrasKorfuIgoumenitsaVenice route. On 27 December 2007 the ship was sold to SeaFrance, with a delivery date set for April 2008.
