"Tallinn to Helsinki"
Reviewed 19 August 2014 by Ashley
Chose to pay 20 Euros for entry to Exec Lounge. Great value, food and staff. Probably cheaper than elsewhere on ship. Eckero line fine but the diabled assistance staff on the wharf at Tallinn were resentful at having to wheelcahr me to ship. He was surly. Not quite as bad at Helsinki. Tried to leave me as we approched customs on pretence they dont like wheelchair tourists. I stayed my ground and has no such experience with Finnish Customs.

Everything was great,the worse thing was waiting to be on-boarded by standing up. In addition to this, when we traveled from Helsinki to Tallinn, even if "check in needed at least 120 minutes before departure" was written on the ticket, the check in opened only 60 minutes before departure. We arrived 150 minutes before and we waited too long without having the possibility to check in. Regards

Loved everything about the Finlandia.... people lay around beanbags in the sun drinking beer and yet I still found a lovely quiet corner to relax - booking was easy and the trip was a breeze

Tallinn is the capital city and main seaport of Estonia. It is located on Estonia's north coast to the Baltic Sea. It has been shaped by nearly a millennium of outside influence. Its name, derived from taani linnus , meaning "Danish Fort", is a reminder of the fact that the city was founded by the Danes at the beginning of the thirteenth century, and since that time political control has nearly always been in the hands of foreigners - Germans, Swedes and Russians. The Germans have undoubtedly had the most lasting influence on the city; Tallinn was one of the leading cities of the Hanseatic League, the German-dominated association of Baltic trading cities, and for centuries it was known to the outside world by its German name, Reval. Even when Estonia was ruled by the kings of Sweden or the tsars of Russia, the city's public life was controlled by the German nobility, and its commerce run by German merchants.
Helsinki, also called "Stadi" in local slang, is the capital of Finland. It is located in the southern part of Finland on the shore of the Gulf of Finland.
Founded in 1550 as a rival to the Hanseatic city of Tallinn by the King Gustav I of Sweden, Helsinki struggled in its infancy. The fledging settlement was plagued by poverty, wars and diseases. For a long time it remained as a small low-key coastal town, overshadowed by the more thriving trade centers in the Baltic region. Although much of the first half of the 20th century was a violent period for Helsinki, it continued to steadily develop. Modern postwar urbanization of the 1970s, which occurred relatively late in European context, tripled the population in the metropolitan area, making the Helsinki metropolitan area one of the fastest growing urban centers in the European Union in 1990s.
