Good evening!

Viking Line is planning a new ship, that will replace M/S Amorella on the Stockholm-Turku route.
What will happen to Amorella? Viking Line has pre-nounced that the maybe will sell her.

Likely one of the Mediterranean operators such as Moby or GNV for example.
Steve in Belfast (suburbia)

Very possible the Cinderella will also finish at that time.

Cinderella does a very specific 22 hour cruise itinerary; it would be wierd to come out of that market and leave it all to Birka.

There have been suggestions in that direction from Finland/Sweden.  Thought is that Cinderella is a loss maker and there are too many evening options from Stockholm (and this ship is due to be the evening boat from Stockholm).

Especially during the week Cinderella is full of pensioners who travel for free/next to free and spend very little money onboard too.
