onboard the Birka Paradise cruise ship on it's way from Stockholm, Sweden to the island of Aland (pron: OH-land) in the Baltic Sea and back. Massive ships like this one criss-cross the Baltic Sea offering a short low-priced getaway giving travelers a breather from the typically well-behaved Nordic life. This Birka cruise, in fact, doesn't even dock in Aland. It just stops for the evening and comes back. Principal attractions appear to be duty-free liquor which passenger buy and consume in prodigious quantities. There's also a thriving singles scene. Finally, there's gambling. For some it's all in the family, with husbands, wives and children all cranking the slot machines. And there are those who can't seem to tear themselves away. These cruises, and there are many, are especially popular during the cold, dark winter months.-----http://www.birkacruises.com/ NOT MODEL RELEASED
