M/S Color Fantasy
On December 10, 2004, Color Line's new flagship, M/S Color Fantasy, was officially christened in Oslo. More than 1,000 guests, an international press corps and a large crowd were present when the ship's godmother, Anne Sidsel Sunde, smashed the champagne bottle against the ship's hull. Color Line took over the ship from Aker Finnyards in Turku, Finland, at an official ceremony on 3 December.
The new ship started to operate the Oslo-Kiel service on a regular schedule from Sunday 12 December, and replaced M/S Prinsesse Ragnhild. The new ship, of 74.600 GT, is more than twice the size of M/S Kronprins Harald and nearly twice as big as M/S The World. The ship has a spa-center, a water park, casino, cinema, show lounge, several discos and restaurants for different age groups and preferences, a separate conference section and an exhibition area. There are different activities for small children. In the duty free section the guests will find fashion stores and other specialty shops.
Most of the attractions and stores are located close to the large internal street, which is 120 meter long, with almost nine meters to the ceiling, extending through three decks. The new cruise ferry will operate the Oslo-Kiel service together with M/S Kronprins Harald. It has capacity for 2770 guests, almost twice as much as M/S Kronprins Harald. The ship will have a large capacity for conferences, and shall also meet the need for transportation of cargo and cars between Norway and Germany. The car decks on board have room for a row of cars measuring 2.5 kilometers, consisting of passenger cars and trailers.
With the M/S Color Fantasy, Color Line, as a major European shipping line, seeks to set a new standard for modern passenger ships, thus carrying Norways leading position in international shipping further. The M/S Color Fantasy will provide two-day cruise experiences unparalleled among cruise ferries in Norway as well as internationally. The M/S Color Fantasy brings on a host of experiences, from total well-being at the Color Spa & Fitness Center, to a 120 meter long shopping and restaurant arcade. The worlds largest cruise liner with a car deck will offer more than 15 restaurants and night clubs, a conference center equipped for 850 guests and an exhibition area covering almost 0.4 acre. The M/S Color Fantasy will provide efficient and environmentally sustainable transportation between Norway and Continental Europe.
