"travel on Baltic Princess"
Reviewed 01 October 2014 by Eva-maria
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.

My wife, daughter and I recently traveled on the M/S Galaxy from Turku to Stockholm. What a stunning journey. The first three hours or so as the ship travels through the Aland Archipelago is spectacular, not only scenery wise but navigation-wise, highlighting the skills of the captain and his crew. Likewise, the interesting trip into Mariehamn, closely followed up the channel into port by Galaxy's sister ship Baltic Princess is an interesting sidelight. Then the entry into Stockholm. Stunning. We occupied a four-berth outside cabin which afforded us privacy and relaxation and was an excellent means of travel. We live in Sydney, Australia and always marvel at the beauty and expanse of Sydney Harbour but the experience of Stockholm Harbour is just as spectacular.

Turku is a city located on the south west coast of Finland and lies at the mouth of the River Aura. The city can trace its history back to the 13th century which makes it the oldest city in Finland. Turku was for a long time the most important population center in Finland. It was the first capital city of Finland from 1809 to 1812 and continued to be the largest city by population in Finland until the end of the 1840s. Today its significance nationwide is not the same as it used to be, but Turku is a regional capital and important location for business and culture in Northern Europe. Because of its long history it has been the site of many important events and has extensively influenced Finnish history. Along with Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia, Turku was designated the European Capital of Culture for 2011. In 1996 it 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.
Comprising a series of islands and located on Sweden's eastern coast, Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden and remains one of the world's most beautiful and appealing cities. It is home to many picture-postcard scenes and endless buildings in shades of terracotta. Stockholm's skyline shimmers in the waters of Lake Mälaren and enjoys rich, blue summer skies, whilst in the winter, the city is covered is crisp snow and scattered with lights. Stockholm has become an extremely modern city and known for its cutting-edge designs, fashion and exceptional nightlife, although the city has managed to preserve its roots within the Old Town area known as the Gamla Stan, where you can quite easily lose yourself in history. This labyrinth of winding cobbled streets is based around the Stortorget (Big Square), while lying to the south and on a further island, the Södermalm offers a definite bohemian vibe, with many art galleries and historic residences, and a sumptuous waterfront lined with hills.
From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations in Finland, Russia and the Baltic States.
