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.

Turku is a city located on the south west coast of Finland and lies at the mouth of the River Aura. The city's history stretches back to the 13th century which makes it Finland's oldest city and was at one point the most important population centre in the country. Between 1809 and 1812 Turku was Finland's capital city and continued to be Finland's largest city until the end of the 1840's.
Although Turku today does not quite have the same level of national importance as it used to have it is still the regional capital and an important base for commerce in northern Europe. The city has been the site of many of Finland's most important events and has had a significant influence of the country's history. Turku was awarded European Capital of Culture for 2011 along with the Estonian city of Tallin. Also, in 1996 Turku was declared the official Christmas City of Finland.
Due to its location, Turku is a notable commercial and passenger seaport with over three million passengers travelling through its port each year to Stockholm and Mariehamn.
Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden and is made up of a series of islands located on Sweden's eastern coast and is widely regarded as one of the world's most beautiful cities. There are many picturesque scenes to be had in the city and its skyline is reflected in the waters of Lake Malaren and enjoys vibrant blue summer skies whilst in the winter the city is often covered by snow and is scattered by lovely lights.
The extremely modern city is known for its design, fashion and lively nightlife but has still managed to preserve its roots in the Old Town area known as the Gamla Stan, where you can quite easily lose yourself in history. The city's maze of cobbled streets is based around the Stortorget, the Big Square, whilst to the south and on a further island, the Sodermalm, offers a definite bohemian atmosphere with its many galleries and historic residences and lovely waterfront.
From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations in Finland, Russia and the Baltic States.
