the MV 'Juno', Sweden

Built in 1874, M/S Juno is the oldest registered cruise boat in the world, seen here in the 200-km Göta canal.
"Her passengers are said to have included Henrik Ibsen and Hans Christian Andersen, and, apart from exchanging steam for diesel power, she hasn't changed much since they trod her decks.

"Sailing on this grand old lady is like stepping back to an era before radio, television and the internet. None of these newfangled devices is available to passengers, and the use of mobile phones in her saloons is frowned upon."
