"paying for purchases aboard the ferry"
Reviewed 03 July 2014 by Monique Naud
Overall, we are satisfied with our crossing like we were last year. However, why can we only pay meals on board in euros during the crossing between Gotenborg and Kiel?

No surprises and all went without a problem. Ferry was clean and comfortable. Cabin average but good enough. A crossing to recommend.

During the outward journey we slept in a nice cabin, but loud noises kept our whole family up all night long. Aside from that everything was tidy and cared for.

"An excellent memory"
Reviewed 29 September 2013 by Kevin
A very pleasant crossing with young childreb. They enjoyed the activities planned for them in the bar (drawing, dancing with the mascot). The quality of the catering was really good too. A vey caring and attentive staff. One suggestion; could you install some screen on the boat to indicate the position of the boat like on planes?

Kiel is a city in northern Germany and the capital of the Bundesland Schleswig-Holstein.
The founder of the city, Count Adolf IV of Schauenburg, saw the exquisite potential offered by the water's edge location at first glance. In 1233, he built his 'Holstenstadt tom Kyle' - today's Kiel - on the peninsula of an arm of the Firth. In 1242, it was established as a city. Nevertheless, from the 14th century, the aristocracy made Kiel into a capital market of significance from the Skagerrak to the Elbe with the annual 'Kieler Umschlag' market. Today, business people in Kiel recall this event with a fun fair every February. A significant boost to the city came with the university, which was founded in 1665. Named after Duke Christian Albrecht, the university made a sustained contribution to the intellectual climate prevailing in the city. The Russian Tsar Peter III was born in Kiel Castle.
Gothenburg is a city on the west-coast of Sweden, in the County of Västra Götaland. The city is often likened to San Francisco because, like the American city, this west-coast location has plenty of bridges, hills, water, trams and seafood restaurants. It has a long and successful tradition of trade and industry, and some of Scandinavia's best known corporations such as Volvo, SKF, ESAB, Hasselblad - have their origins and head offices here. A significant proportion of Sweden's exports and imports pass through Gothenburg's port. King Gustav II Adolf, looking for western trade, founded Gothenburg in the early seventeenth century as a response to the high tolls charged by the Danes for using the narrow sound between the two countries. As a Calvinist and businessman, Gustav much admired Dutch merchants, inviting them to trade and live in Gothenburg, and it's their influence that shaped the city, parts of which have a Dutch feel.
