    Sounds like the perfect excursion to me.

    Your post has been saved to my notes for a possible future attempt at going there myself: you never know, but I would really like to make such a visit, provided I have the perfect guide to bring along!

      Two new ferries for Norled to be built and completed at Romantow Shipyard in Poland:
      https://sysla.no/maritim/norled-best...ger-fra-polen/

      Note the "humped" car deck, which is a new feature. Here is an explanation:
      From both ends, the deck has a small incline Underneath this "hump" they can accommodate both the pax lounge and the crew cabins. Thus the lounge is at the same level as the car deck on a traditional ferry.

      "Here's a big, bright and nice lounge," says Technical Director Sigvald Breivik in Norled.

      From both ends of the ferry there shall be flat and wide passage to the lounge. From the middle of the deck it becomes a staircase. Breivik emphasizes that the passages will be wide for ease of pax traffic, baby carriages and wheel chairs.

      And this is perhaps the first ferry with such a solution with fun on the picture deck.

      "We have not seen this before, Breivik wins in Norled. He thinks there are several advantages to doing so.

      "In this way we can make the ferries as traffic-efficient as possible, with large-and wide car deck, without obstacles common on traditional ferries. And then we have avoided the elevator.
      These ferries also have a small windage area, which improve manoeuvrability in high wind and high energy efficiency.

        Interesting design and lay-out of the car main deck. From the drawing, it seems like there is an up- /downhill deck, without any shelter deck on the side. The design is similar to K, with the exception of the crew deck, and the "rampedekk (shelter deck).
