Nice historic motorship with a lovely antique wooden interior and beautiful lines on the outside. The lady who gave explanations on the speaker was superb, witty and pleasant, switching between musical Swedish and English with the same musical intonation. The trip itself is wonderful, with breathtaking views all the way.
