Card #9 from Finland

Thanks to postcrosser Sini from Finland for sending this beautiful card of my choice.

The card shows the passenger cruise ferry MS Viking Sally (1980 - 1990) of Viking Line, which was put into service on June 29, 1980 and was sailing the route between Turku, Mariehamn and Stockholm. She was renamed as MS Estonia in 1993.

The ship's sinking in the Baltic Sea on September 28,1994, claimed 852 lives and was one of the deadliest maritime disasters of the late 20th century.
