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.

Nynashamn is a town and port located in Stockholm County in Sweden. The town is roughly 60 km to the south of Stockholm and is known for being one of the places on the Swedish mainland from where ferries depart to the island of Gotland. The town is a popular destination for holidaying Swedes during the summer months. A harbour party is hosted each summer, as well as local craft fairs. During these events a steam train often runs to and from Stockholm. During the summer months, the harbour is packed with boats of all sizes, and bustles with both visitors and locals. There are a number of restaurants and boutiques in the town selling much locally made produce. The main town is mainly modern and the buildings uninteresting generally. A library and one screen cinema is centrally located as are a limited number of shops which cater to mainly local people. During the early 20th Century, Nynäshamn also became well known as a spa town, though most facilities were closed down before the end of World War I.
From the port, ferries can be taken to Gotland and Gdansk in Poland.
