Shippax Award 2011
Outstanding Ferry ConceptSTENA HOLLANDICA
For creating “a home away from home” feeling onboard, by combining several side lounges into a living-room-like area, a design that is quaintessentially Scandinavian. Think about the egg-and-ant chair by Dane Arne Jacobsen, and those colourful, obligatory Dala horses. STENA HOLLANDICA, the largest ferry in the world!
