  • Many thanks again for my latest cargo ship experience which was wonderful.
    I enjoyed the trip on the Gerda, with Captain H. who ensured that I had my best experience to date. Also, a mention to the Chef, who made very tasty meals, also to all the crew, I can’t list all their names, unfortunately, however, all staff combined made my experience so enjoyable and I will definitely try to go on that route again to meet them again.
    I highly recommend this trip!
    You are very...
