"From Goteborf to Kiel"
The journey was nice apart from the cabin because the air conditioner system was too noisy. The staff on board was ok.

The Swedish city of Gothenburg is located on the west coast of Sweden and lies around midway between the cities of Copenhagen in Denmark and the Norwegian city of Oslo. The city's strategic location at the mouth of the River Gota Alv, which then flows into Kattegatt, part of the North Sea, has been instrumental in its development as a trading city. The city's rich industrial and cultural heritage is well known and is home to some of the largest events in Scandinavia. The International Film Festival has been held in Gothenburg every year since 1979 and so too has the Way Out West and Metaltown music festivals. Gothenburg is also the home city of Volvo, the car maker, that was founded in 1927. Additionally, Gothenburg is also home to the University of Gothenburg and the Chalmers University of Technology.
Gothenburg's port, the largest of its kind in the Nordic countries, has ferry services departing from it towards Frederikshavn in Denmark, Kristiansand in Norway, Kiel in Germany and Newcastle in the UK. When arriving by boat, visitors will see the spectacular waterfront before them and will enjoy the convenience of disembarking in the city centre.
The city of Kiel is located in the north of Germany and lies on the Baltic Sea coast, to the south east of the Jutland Peninsular. Situated around 90 km to the north of the city of Hamburg, Kiel is a major maritime hub in Germany and has been one of the traditional homes of the German Navy's Baltic Sea Fleet. The city is also a major centre of high tech shipbuilding and an important transport hub as a result of its location on the Kiel Fjord and the busiest waterway in the world, the Kiel Canal.
Visitors to Kiel will find a number of interesting museums that focus on topics such as zoological, geological, historical, fine art, industrial and the military. Notable is the Stadt- und Schifffahrtsmuseum Warleberger Hof (City and Maritime Museum), which belongs to the association museen am meer.
A number of passenger ferries to Sweden, Norway, Russia, and other countries operate from the city's harbour. Today, Kiel harbour is an important port of call for cruise ships touring the Baltic Sea.
