On board of M/S Nils Holgersson

The high-quality Swedish ferry has 220 cabins for over 700 passengers. On 9 decks there are 3 vehicle decks (decks 1, 3, 5) and 3 decks with cabins, reception, restaurant, panorama bar, on-board shop, gambling area, children's cinema, fitness centre with two saunas and whirlpool as well as the crew decks.

Our ship was named after the popular main character from the children's story "Nils Holgerssons wunderbare Reise durch Schweden" (Nils Holgersson's wonderful journey through Sweden). It was first published in 1906 by the Swedish author Selma Lagerlöf. It deals with the boy Nils from the southern Swedish city of Skåne, who is lazy and malicious. That is why he is transformed into a thumb and flies all over Sweden on the back of a goose. After many travel experiences he returns and is transformed back into an ordinary boy because of his bravery and courage.
