  • "staff helpful, cabin comfortable"

    We sailed on the overnight ferry from Gdynia to Karlskrona. The crossing was calm. Food was plentily available and of a good quality. It is hard to get the cabin ready for 6am but I understand why it is necessary. It was good that the intercom system asked people to be quiet at night, as we had noisy neighbours but they were quiet after that.
