I love a beautiful ass… and nobody has a more beautiful ass than Estrid!
Now at the risk of being grounded by the Scary One let me try and wriggle out of this one.
The maiden voyage of Stena’s spanking new ferry, Estrid, set sail yesterday from Holyhead to Dublin.
And no, I don’t have a weird fascination for a ship’s hull…
It’s because ‘ass’ is the Swedish for goddess and Fridr means ‘beautiful’.
Phew… I think I got away with that!
The Estrid is special and not at all like the ferries I first started on 50 years ago from Scotland to Northern Ireland.
For one you won’t have to lug a pram or stroller up the steps from the car deck which, of course, my Dear Old Mum had to do with me.
The car deck on Estrid is on the same level!
And where my childhood memories of the ferry were of the time hanging heavy on me…
Here on Estrid there are two movie docks.
That’s not to mention Swedish meatballs, well it is Stena, and a smorgasbord of tasty dishes.
You feel like relaxing after all that… try the Hygge reclining area. I think it’s Swedish for craic
Or if you want to go for the full lie-down… then Estrid has 175 cabins.
And the crew are super friendly… I got a big Jungfruresa which I think means failte or welcome.
And a prize for anyone (well my respect) who can identify these Irish icons in the picture.
And remember for the best in what’s on water read Cruiseday Tuesday every week Cruiseday Tuesday – Cruise year resolutions on the day between Monday and Wednesday.
