Hi Pekka,
Thanks for this great but for us sad information about Finnlines. :-( It's fine for us that you like our photo. :-D

Very likely one of the last photos of this well-known visitor in Antwerp. She namely will be phased out on her present route in next few weeks. Then she moves to Finnlines´ service to Gulf of Biscay together with her sister BIRKA CARRIER.

Also the third one, BIRKA TRADER will quit calling Antwerp.
