My wife and I crossed a week ago. Reserved tickets online in UK and collected at time of departure - excellent service. Boarded on time. Stormy weather encountered so ship slowed down on outbound journey - tannoy announcements advised us to take precautions etc. However on the return journey we hit more severe weather unfortunately the ship didn't seem to slow at all and sailed through at normal speed. There was more movement and many ill people on board, also seemed less concern about safety on return leg. Good for day trip to Helsinki. Would we do it again - my wife certainly wouldn't due to being very ill. Ship punctual, which I feel is their priority. A ferry was lost in a storm 20 years ago with speed a contributing factor. Let lessons be learnt. Safety should be more important than punctuality.....

Boarding was easy, the e-tickets worked. The sea was calm which helped and the journey was comfortable and on time. Very good value. We only ate a little - it was okay but I probably would save money with taking my own food next time.

The trip on the ferry was OK. Everything was as we was informed. We did not have any problems with picking up the tickets, boarding. The trip was pleasent, however there was not much places to sit for the passanger that wish not to purchase meals/beverages and did not have booked cabins.

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.
