How did you first find out about the ship M/S Stockholm and what caught your interest?
I found her on the Internet when searching for trips to Svalbard on small ships, and I was immediately fascinated with her originality. I can't stand it when they advertise "luxury". In my mind, she is more luxurious than all those modernised up market ships.
What is it about M/S Stockholm, that makes you travel with her repeatedly?
M/S Stockholm, what ever can I say? The feelings I have comes from deep inside and all wells up when I see her again for my next trip. When I finish a trip and am still around, I come and watch her depart (sadly without me).
One never really knows what to expect, which makes it a true adventure. Having Per Engwall the Captain and owner of the ship, and his selected crew interact with us – it makes it feel like a big family.
I may be silly, but the two GREAT trips I did to Greenland last year, it was all about the trips and the ships were in a way irrelevant. With Stockholm it's the other way around!
Where did your first trip go?
My first trip was a circumnavigation of Svalbard. While on board, Per Engwall said he went to St. Kilda, a place I’d always wanted to go, so that sold me for my second trip. After that there was no stopping me…
Which trip on the M/S Stockholm would you say has been your favorite and why?
Oh, who knows... all of them! Extremely lucky to land on St. Kilda twice in really good weather. But when I did the three trips in a row, from Scotland to Svalbard, I was in heaven. Might add that all the guides have been great, as is your office!
