Staying in the theme of Viking Line, here is a ship that has been featured far too rarely in this blog: the Viking Cinderella, without a doubt the best ship currently in Viking Line's fleet. A status she is likely to lose next year to the unfortunately named Viking Grace. But until then, if you wish to experience the best that the red ships can offer, go on the red ship with a white hull.
These photographs show the Viking Cinderella arriving at Viking Line's terminal on Tegelvikshamnen in the afternoon of 10 February 2012. Photographed from Södermalm. Click on the images to see them in larger size.
|It's a great-looking ship, even though I think she looked betetr (and less boxy) with the proper red Viking Line hull.|
|...I couldn't get pictures showing the ship from a aft view from this point, she moved behind a security fence. I think I have a bunch of older pics showing her from an aft view, I'll have to dig them up at some point.|
