"A Trip Highlight"
Crossing the Baltic on the Esabelle is the only way to get from Stockholm to Riga (or vice-versa) if you appreciate stress-free, leisurable travel. The ship is laden with bars and restaurants, coupled with entertainment and a helpful and friendly crew, enabling you to wile away the time as you cruise into the sunset. Highly recommended.

"17 hours of pure relax"
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.

"Why change to cruise?"
This route is perfect for us. I can rest after 800 km driving to Stockholm from Skellefteå and then be fit for driving 500 km from Riga to Vibetsk in Belarus. The return trip got changed though so we had to drive the extra miles to Tallin instead of Riga. The ferry company changed it because this route will only be operated as a cruise. Will this be permanent? I would like to be able to go on this route again. Kind regards Sven Olov Lund

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.

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and is spread across 14 islands in the south east of Sweden and lies at the mouth of Lake Malaren, by the Stockholm Archipelago and the Baltic Sea. There are many cultural institutions based in Stockholm and the region in general is home to three of Sweden's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These are the Drottningholm Palace, Skogskyrkogården (The Woodland Cemetery) and Birka. Stockholm was also named European Capital of Culture in 1998. With over 100 museums, Stockholm has one of the highest number of museums of any other world city. The Nationalmuseum is perhaps the most famous and contains the country's largest collection of art. 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.
Stockholm's port is a major gateway to Sweden and is therefore an important port for both freight and passengers travelling to and from Finland, Russia and the Baltic States. The port is close to the city centre where all of the usual facilities you would expect to find in a major city are located.
Riga is the capital city of Latvia and is located at the mouth of the River Daugava, on the shores of the Gulf of Riga, in the Baltic Sea. Riga, with long and illustrious history and cultural heritage, is a multicultural city which is perhaps because it has always been situated at the junction of some major trading routes. For the city's visitors this is a good thing as there are many things to do and see in the city including the diverse architecture on offer, especially the art nouveau buildings. In fact, because of its collection of art nouveau buildings, which is one of the largest in the world, Riga has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
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.
