It is indeed the sister ship of the Herald of Free Enterprise. There is also a third sister, the Anthi Marina of GA-Ferries (Greece).

Nice colour scheme and ship. Just asking but, might this be a sistership of the Ill-fated Herald of Free Enterprise? Accomodations look alot alike from what I remember of the latter.
