"17 hours of pure relax"
Reviewed 04 October 2014 by Alexandre e Nadia
We really liket the Isabelle ferry. It was full of entertainment options and full of people but we could relax on our own and feel as if we were the only people in the ship, appreciating calmly the Swedish islands and the sunset. Later on we watched the band presentation and went to the lively nightclub before going to our cabin. Dinner was very nice, breakfast could be improved, but overall it was a nice experience that we would recommend to other people who are going from Stockholm to Riga.

Excellent service from start to finish. Check in fast and efficient, great facilities on the boat. The cabin was more than adequate and clean. The only negative was the restaurants were very pricey for us Brits, but probably normal for the Scandinavian markets that they mostly serve.

On a ship like this, it is environmentally friendly travel! The restaurants were pleasant and the staff very friendly, no complaints.

"my 2 crossings Tallin : Stockholm Riga and back"
Reviewed 05 June 2014 by Christian Piette
The first crossing between Stockholm and Riga was difficult: during check-in, the hostess asked me if I knew that it was a special "cruise". I didn't, so she explained that it was a "young people" cruise and that consequently there will be some noise, some music and some ambiance! And indeed it was a "release" party which seems to be organised twice a year for young people who get drunk, crazy and obscene. There was a racket all night long with music and residues of alcohol. Although the few people who were around my age hid in the cabin, it was impossible to sleep and it was safer to stay inside. I filed a complain the next day and they understood and said that there had probably been a misunderstanding at the time of my booking, because I was not informed about that special situation. In conclusion: check that it's a regular cruise and not a young people cruise, unless you are a young people yourself and youi don't mind the noise, the smell of alcohol and the exuberant attirude.

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and is spread across 14 islands in the south east of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Malaren, by the Stockholm archipelago and the Baltic Sea. Apart from being Sweden's capital, Stockholm is home to many national cultural institutions. The Stockholm region is home to three of Sweden's UNESCO World Heritage Sites – spots judged as invaluable places that belong to all of humanity: The Drottningholm Palace, Skogskyrkogården (The Woodland Cemetery) and Birka. In 1998, Stockholm was named European Capital of Culture. Stockholm is also one of the most crowded museum-cities in the world with around 100 museums. The most famous is perhaps the Nationalmuseum, which contains Sweden's largest collection of art: 16,000 paintings and 30,000 objects of art handicraft. The collection dates back to the days of Gustav Vasa in the 16th century, and has since been expanded with works by artists such as Rembrandt, and Antoine Watteau, as well as constituting a main part of Sweden's art heritage.
The Port of Stockholm is one of the major ports in Scandinavia. It is a major gateway into Sweden and is central for freight and passengers sailing from Sweden to Finland, Russia and the Baltic States. The centre of Stockholm can easily be reached on foot and has many dining, shopping and business facilities for travellers. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Helsinki (16 hour crossing time), Langnas, Mariehamn and Turku in Finland. There is also a service to Tallin in Estonia with a crossing time of around 6 hours.
The Latvian capital, Riga, is the gem of the Baltics. It is located at the mouth of the Daugava, on the shores of the Gulf of Riga on the Baltic. The city has an ancient history and rich cultural heritage. As Riga has always been located at the junction of some major trading routes, it is a multicultural city which means there are many things to see and do in the city. Visitors can admire the diverse architecture of Riga, especially the art nouveau buildings. Riga has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to the collection of art nouveau buildings that are one of the largest in the world.
Riga's Commercial Port sits at the heart of the city. There are two primary passenger routes operating through the port. There is a service to Stockholm in Sweden, with a crossing time of around 17 hours, and a service to the German port of Lubecka with a crossing time of around 31 hours.
