  • "Clean and beautiful"

    I have no complaints, really. I liked the way kids were welcomed on board the ship with a Moomin figure saying hello :-) There was a wide variety of catering, bars and restaurants as well as something to choose from for kids. It was easy to step outside the ship and watch Finland disappear, and the windows are clean (easy to watch from inside). I took ferry to Finland by another company and this was way superior. The internet access is better, the TVs screens are bigger, the variety of shops, entertainment and bars much wider, the ferry was cleaner and the staff friendlier.

  • "Wonderful trip"

    Checking in goes very smoothly, with much professionalism. The ship looks neat and clean. The cabin was not large, but it was just for us 3 adults and two large dogs which was fine. The shopping arcade and restaurants are nice with spacious layout and look very well taken care of. All in all, a good experience. Highly recommended. Also the staff is very friendly and helpful.

  • "Dont forget something in your car..."

    Our trip from Turku to Stockholm was pleasant, without any negative experiences. But little trouble for us is unable go to car-deck for pickup something during trip. I know, this is for security reason, but it is quite uncomfortable.

  • "Off to Stockholm from Turku"

    Wonderful summer evening cruise in good weather. Cabin more spacious than expected on 9th deck, and bed linen was very good. Lots of different styles of entertainment, and enough places to sit and watch the islands go by as the sun set. We picnicked on deck, so haven't been able to rate the catering. It would hav e been helpful to have had information about the terminal at the start of our trip from Turku i.e. what time passengers should arrive before boarding, facilities at the terminal, whether a local bus went there....but impressively smooth voyage.

  • "travel on Baltic Princess"

    Clean cabin, plenty of restaurants on board, helpful personnel, good tax free shop with a good selection of alcohol and sweets. The pub had a good musical entertainment, the selection of beers from tap could have been better. From Finnish beers Karhu would have been nice, another Swedish or Estonian beer would be good. If it is meant to be an Irish pub, some Irish beer would have been great (just noticed the musician was Irish). Unfortunately it was noisy in the cabin until late at night, due to the noise levels in the game hall underneath. I did not try any of the catering on board due to my low budget.

  • "MS Galaxy - Turku to Stockholm on Friday 15 August 2014."

    My family of three shared a cabin (with view)for the above journey. You have certainly been blessed by nature as the trip out of Turku through the archapelago and similarly into Stockholm must rank as one of the most spectacular sea journeys in the world. Absolutely beautiful. The ship was very comfortable and the onboard staff excellent and helpful. Thanks to the captain and his crew for a safe and most interesting journey. I am in awe of the crew's seamanship in manoeuvring the ship in the channel at Mariehamn.
