QUEEN OF SCANDINAVIA
This was the Queen of Scandinavia's final "Piers In" to the Port of Tyne (North East England) on 29th August 2008.
The Queen is no longer required on the Tyne to Norway route as DFDS has withdrawn the service for economical reasons.
The Tyne has been linked with a route to Norway for 144 years and we are now no longer with that facility.
