  • "Lovely experience"

    We had recently crossed from Stockholm to Helinsinki on Silja Serenade, very nice experience. Booking was done on line and although cabins were at 2nd level ( class), those were good, no issues. Cabin was clean and bathroom was of good size. We had paid extra as made almost last minute booking, i am sure if you book well in advance, can be more economical. The check - in process was efficient and the staff were helpful. Although the weather was not warm that night, so were unable to use the deck and missed the sun set or rise. Although the dinner buffet looked good, we ate in a restaurant and had the best veggie burger. There are many restaurants and food choices, Atlantis and New York with live shows and music. The terminal for Silja is Olympia in Helisinki and you can IA or 2A metro to the central station. Tourist information is about 10 mins walk , close to Viking terminal and have very nice food in the tents. Will recommend Silja over a flight or viking line due to their renovated /new ferries.

    Booked a cheap crossing between Stockholm and Helsinki and down on level two but really nice cabin, bunks for two, comfortable and roomy. En-suite shower room and toilet. Small sitting area. Great deals in the duty free shops and very enjoyable free show. Nice cocktails in the bar with great views.
