Estonian shipping line Tallink says it will give lifetime free travel to a baby born on a passenger ferry en route from Sweden to Estonia last week.

Spokeswoman Luulea Laane says an Estonian woman gave birth to a girl June 11 with assistance from the Baltic Queen's doctor and other medical personnel among the 1,000 passengers traveling between Stockholm and Tallinn. The baby and mother are doing well.

Laane said Thursday that the Tallinn-based company decided to honor the birth by granting the baby free travel for life on the Baltic Queen that was launched in April. The parents are also entitled to substantial discounts.

It was the second Tallink ferry birth since 2004.
