Former passenger volunteers18.01.2012- As a child, Milan Falsing from Denmark had traveled many times onboard the Dronning Ingrid. He recently realized his dream of serving onboard this ferry, which becameâ€¦ the Africa Mercy!
May 31, 1997 was the last operational day for the ferry Dronning Ingrid. That same year, a tunnel built under the sea made ferries in Danemark obsolete. That was a very sad day for 11-year-old Milan Falsingâ€¦
Trips on the ferry to visit his grand-mother were a fond memory and Milan was broken-hearted. His concerned mother contacted the ferry owners to ask if her children could make a farewell visit to the ferry. Amazingly the company’s vice president granted the request and even toured the ship with them. „That’s when I decided to become a seafarer,“ he said. „I just wanted to go out to sea.“
