    It was a very nice trip, the ferry has lots of space to sit down and the trip is very pleasant. Although there was a slight delay to depart, we arrived on time.

  • "A Good Service"

    Overall an efficient ferry service. I would have liked to see some reclining chairs available without a premium. Having to be at the check-in one before departure for a foot passenger is too long

  • "Efficient and good value"

    We caught the 7:30 morning ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki and the 5:30 afternoon back, and this was just right for a day trip. Crossing was smooth and the view from the very impressive and comfortable front-facing lounge was superb. You can stand on the deck and admire the view of the islands in the fresh air too. Handy tip: get a day pass on the trams when you catch the #9 into the centre. The #2 will take you to the cathedral/waterfront area. Booking online was very easy.
