Nice picture, but I think it can't be Mercandia VII.
Mercandia VII (Ex Superflex Whiskey, IMO 8611611) left Denmark 1995 and was renamed DVD No II.
As far as I can see, the ferry on the picture is Mercandia IV (ex. Superflex November, IMO 8611685).
It is serving Helsingør-Helsingborg together with its sister Mercandia VIII (ex Superflex Bravo, ex. Svea Scarlett, IMO 8611623). Both has been in service there since June 1996.
HH-Ferries has one more sister, Gitte 3 (ex. Superflex Delta, ex. Difko Storebælt, IMO 8611635). Gitte 3 is not in service, but laid up in Helsingborg and used as spare parts.
