Great trip, easy and things to do though there wasn't a trivia contest. It's not true that you have to be there 2 hours beforehand for this one; 45 minutes is more than enough time.

Booking via Direct Ferries was straightforward and easy. Viking staff at both ends of our journey were friendly courteous and helpful. Ships were on time, comfortable and clean.Terminals at Helsinki and Tallinn were easy to reach with good transport links. Instructions for reaching ferries was clear. My only adverse comment relates to Direct Ferries instruction that check in had to be done 2 hours before departure. This originally caused us some concern re travelling arrangements to port. However on reading Viking Lines web site this was not the case. The times were much shorter. My suggestion is to read the providers specific web site for guidance.

Helsinki, also called "Stadi" in local slang, is the capital of Finland. It is located in the southern part of Finland on the shore of the Gulf of Finland.
Founded in 1550 as a rival to the Hanseatic city of Tallinn by the King Gustav I of Sweden, Helsinki struggled in its infancy. The fledging settlement was plagued by poverty, wars and diseases. For a long time it remained as a small low-key coastal town, overshadowed by the more thriving trade centers in the Baltic region. Although much of the first half of the 20th century was a violent period for Helsinki, it continued to steadily develop. Modern postwar urbanization of the 1970s, which occurred relatively late in European context, tripled the population in the metropolitan area, making the Helsinki metropolitan area one of the fastest growing urban centers in the European Union in 1990s.
Tallinn is the capital city and main seaport of Estonia. It is located on Estonia's north coast to the Baltic Sea. It has been shaped by nearly a millennium of outside influence. Its name, derived from taani linnus , meaning "Danish Fort", is a reminder of the fact that the city was founded by the Danes at the beginning of the thirteenth century, and since that time political control has nearly always been in the hands of foreigners - Germans, Swedes and Russians. The Germans have undoubtedly had the most lasting influence on the city; Tallinn was one of the leading cities of the Hanseatic League, the German-dominated association of Baltic trading cities, and for centuries it was known to the outside world by its German name, Reval. Even when Estonia was ruled by the kings of Sweden or the tsars of Russia, the city's public life was controlled by the German nobility, and its commerce run by German merchants.
