Since I am 80 years old I was very greatful that the girls at the check in was very helpful so I didn't have to walk any extra distances at the check in both in Nynashamn and in Ventspils. What I don't understand is why you can't go to your car directly at arrival. You get lured out of your cabin and then have to stand up and wait with aching joints for 15-20 min and hustle and sweating among other people at the foyer.

"Relatively simple, but OK"
StenaLine doesn't use the newest ships on the passage from Nynashamn to Ventspils. The food being offered is also relatively simple und limited. However, the price for the passage is also quite reasonable and the atmosphere on board is relaxed.
