Baby Born On Estonian Ferry Wins Free Travel For Life
Passenger Shipping Company Tallink announced today that a lucky baby born on one of their passenger ferries en route from Sweden to Estonia last week will get lifetime free travel.
Spokeswoman Luulea Laane says an Estonian woman gave birth to a girl June 11 with assistance from the Baltic Queen's doctor and other medical personnel among the 1,000 passengers traveling between Stockholm and Tallinn. The baby and mother are doing well.
Laane said Thursday that the Tallinn-based company decided to honor the birth by granting the baby free travel for life on the Baltic Queen that was launched in April. The parents are also entitled to substantial discounts.
That's not bad considering the cabins on this boat start at €216 for a basic inside and go up to €1296 for a suite.
