  • "Fantastic"

    I stayed on board as the ship went from Stockholm to Helsinki. The ship has a fantastic selection of facilities and services. This route offers fantastic views of the Stockholm Archipelago, particularly at sunset. I had a comfortable stay and would definitely consider having a longer stay in the future.

  • "fantastic "

    Was great, we thought it would be a small ferry and turned out to be a cruise ship with excellent restaurants and service

  • "Scenic views & comfortable journey across the Baltic"

    Easy check in. Great price. Departed on time and enjoyed scenic views from the outside sun decks. Enjoyed the Viking Buffet. Good selection although price is on the steep side (€36 per adult). Had the cheapest inside piccolo cabin with bunk beds. It was comfortable enough for two adults for one night, however I wouldn't recommend bunk beds for kids or elderly travellers. Getting out of the top bunk isn't very fun! Watched a good live band and magician in the cafe del mar area. Good entertainment to pass some time. Got up early the next morning and enjoyed great views coming into Helsinki. Would travel again if I was in the area. Definitely more of an experience than flying.

It has some 16,000 paintings and 30,000 objects of art handicraft. The oldest items in the collection date back to the 16th century and has been expanded with works by artists such as Rembrandt and Antoine Watteau.
