On Saturday (September 3), the ceremony of naming the new ferry directed to the Gdynia-Karlskrona service took place. The name of the ferry Stena Estelle was given by the godmother of the ship, Katarzyna Gruszecka-Spychała, vice-president of Gdynia.
– „Sail on the Baltic, connecting Gdynia with Karlskrona, Poland with Sweden. Be a joy for the crew and passengers on every cruise. I give you the name Stena Estelle” – said Vice President Katarzyna Gruszecka–Spychała and smashed a bottle of champagne against the starboard side of the ship.
– Stena Estelle is E-Flexer type ferry, one of the largest ferries in the Baltic Sea in regular sailing. It is 240 meters long, offers space for 1,200 people and can accommodate up to 200 trucks on 3,600 meters of car decks – said Marek Kiersnowski, managing director of Stena Line Polska.
