"Helsinski in a day"
Reviewed 20 November 2014 by Julia
During a recent holiday to Tallin I prebooked a return ferry trip to Helsinski. I had a printout and collected the tickets at Tallin, all very straightforward. We did not pre book a seat so could make use of the facilities and shops on board. I was very impressed with the ferry which was spaciaous and had ample seating areas. There was a good choice of bars and restaurants. We also visited the shops that had a great choice. Arriving at Helsinski the tram into the city is outside the arrival doors, 9 or 6 and is a very frequent service. I would use directferries for any future bookings.

The ferry was comfortable with good value food and drink facilities. Very easy to board and disembark - arrives in the west port of Helsinki. A very good ferry service.

I booked a return ticket between Tallin and Helsinki. Although the trip and service were over standard, I must point out the impossiblity of checking in (actually, getting my 'boarding pass' as I booked the trip through the internet) in advance. I visited the port premises the evening before the trip in order to sort this out, just to be told that I could only get my real ticket one hour before the boarding. As it was the 7.30am service, I should be checking in before 6.30. Luckily, Tallin bus service runs very early in the morning and I could make it. I think, however, that it would be very convenient to be able to check in during the previous afternoon for early morning services.
