The flagship theme for December/January is Cruise Ferry, which basically means ferries that have berthing cabins for passengers, and also take vehicles in a typical RO-RO fashion. We will accept ferries from anywhere in the world that meet this criteria, past or present.
On our coast, current vessels that would be eligible are: - most of the Alaska Marine Highway fleet - Northern Expedition - Northern Adventure
Past west coast vessels (including, but not limited to, the following): - Queen of the North - Queen of Prince Rupert - Wickersham - Chinook (in its original form, NOT Chinook II or Sechelt Queen) - Princess Marguerite II - some of the former CPR ferries?
I can think of a few in Eastern Canada, both current and recent past: - any of the Marine Atlantic vessels (Blue Puttees, Highlanders, Atlantic Vision, Leif Erikson) - former Marine Atlantic (Caribou, Joseph & Clara Smallwood) - the CTMA ferries that sail between Souris, PEI, and Iles De Madeleine, Quebec - the now defunct Nova Star
There are also plenty of international ferries to choose from, especially in Europe.

The beautiful, and now scrapped, Ancona in Split, Croatia, alongside Jadrolinija's somewhat less attractive Dubrovnik. Oct 2006. I would board the Ancona for an overnight ride to Ancona Italy a few days later.
Spanning her forty-four years of dependable coastal service, the beloved dowager Queen of Prince Rupert, meant so much to so many souls who travelled within her comfortable confines, to the crew who proudly crewed aboard her through the good times, misfortunes and unscheduled 'adventures' along the way. Her port-side 'tears of rust' are indeed well earned.
Here's a few last minute entries from me. Nothing really new unfortunately since my library of international ferries is quite thin. Also, my apologies to anyone who was holding out on not seeing the big fat greek ferry be part of this vote.
