This book examines the development, operation and social context of some of the world's largest and most sophisticated passenger vessels - the Baltic super ferries. Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of car ferry services across the Central Baltic, this volume analyses the development of Silja Line, Viking Line, Finnlines, Tallink and numerous smaller operators. Thoroughly researched and richly illustrated, it describes the growth of the shipping lines, the design of their vessels and the phenomenon of tax-free shopping mini-cruises which annually attract many millions of passengers.
