    Oslo to Kiel foot pasenger
    • Great looking ship with several good features but relatively expensive. Escalators and map of ship were excellent. Eating options were mediocre. ColorLine should change those smoky highly polluting engines for modern environmentaly clean engines like some of the modern Danish ferries use. We travellers should not be paying so much for polluting the air just because we are at sea!!

    A freight vessel taking passengers as an afterthought
    • This is a useful route to avoid the long drive through Poland and Eastern Germany but it is essentially a freight line. For example be prepared to shunt and back you vehicle into incredibly tight spaces and little space to get out of the vehicle, impossible if you are overweight! Be prepared to hump your overnight kit up, if you are on the lowest deck, 6 flights of steep stairs as there are no lifts on board. (Disabled and older passengers take note.) Staff can be unhelpful and on one occasion to the point of rudeness - maybe a language problem? (German, Lithuanian and Russian main languages on board.) Food on board is basic. The vessel is a cargo ship and not a passenger ferry and as such tends to have move movement. On the positive side our cabin was comfortable and we were able to watch World Cup football live on the lounge T.V. If you are traveling to or from Hamburg via Kiel be aware that as of early July about 35 km of the 100km motorway is presently being dug up!

    not a normal ferry
    • I travel on quite a few ferries from UK to Europe. This journey was a bit special. From Sweden to Germany, saves on driving and thought we'd see a bit of the coast. The biggest surprise was the ferry. Everything was a tad better than normal ferries. The accommodation was excellent, superb cabin, great facilities. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The food was the best I've had on any ferry. So it was like an upgraded ferry journey, but the big surprise was the price. Total value for money. Why can't all ferries be like this

    Terrace suite.. 0 additional value
    • The journey was OK, but we booked a terrace suite (and paid extra) to find out the terrace was just a terrace on the 'bar' deck, with the bar in front of you and lots of noise and loud people. We would presume a terrace suite would be with view of the sea. Besides this, our cabin was lovely, spacious and very tidy (but noisy sounds from the frames on the wall). The buffet on board could be a bit better.
