Polferries, also known as the Polish Baltic Shipping Company, runs ferry routes between Poland and Scandinavia.
Now the largest ferry operator in Poland, Polferries was set up in 1976 as a state-owned shipping company, with terminals in Swinoujscie and Gdansk. Sailing to Ystad in southern Sweden over a dozen times weekly, this route represents a convenient and affordable way of reaching the Danish capital, Copenhagen, lying just ninety two kilometres to the west. Furthermore, the second route, docking in Nynashamn, takes you just sixty kilometres south of Stockholm.
Built in Sweden, the Polferries ships have excellent on-board facilities and feature all the usual amenities expected of an international ferry company, guaranteeing an enjoyable trip across the Baltic Sea. M/V Baltivia began sailing in Polferries colours in 2007, having undergone a complete refurbishment five years previously. M/F Wawel can accommodate a thousand passengers, featuring newly designed cabins, a cinema and a conference room. Finally, M/F Mazovia was purchased in 2014 when it was totally rebuilt, resulting in additional accommodation options and top-of-the-range catering areas.

"Good travel route"
When you don't want to drive through all of Sweden to reach the continent. Clean and neat outside cabin, seemed newly renovated. A small tax free shop but pretty good selection. The a la carte restaurant was very good. Friendly and helpful staff. There was no WiFi on the boat, a shame but nice in a way. The journey started with som hassle in Gdansk, due to road works and divertions of traffic, so it wasn't easy to find your way to the port. The crossing was calm at the start but around 2 am it was very rocky. I'm wondering it a bigger ferry is neccessary on this route? When we passed Gotland it had calmed down again and the last bit was not windy. Nice to have been able to rest instead of driving and now we only have a few miles left before we are home again.

"Nice trip although we panicked a little bit"
The trip was nice and pleasant. The problem for us was that we put the address in the GPS and we ended up in what we think was the old port. Luckily there was a person who called himself a guide who sent us to the correct address after we paid him. It felt very unsecure though. You need to change information so customer gets the correct address.

departure on time but due to rough sea and the old ship, the crossing has not been very pleasant. Not enough services on board for a 19hours trip
