Helsinki Stockholm Ferry reviews

  • "Smooth sailing"

    I was very apprehensive about travelling on an over night ferry, but my experience with Viking great.

  • "Sailing to Stockholm"

    A great way to arrive in Stockholm from Helsinki. The views as the ship glides in through the islands of the Stockholm arcipelago make it well worth getting up early before docking in the capital. The smorgesbord buffet dinner is good with a good selection of hot and cold dishes and as the ship wasn't over busy on our voyage it was reasonably relaxed. Only negative for us was the lack of seating available after check in at the terminal in Helsinki. Don't bother going up to tge departure level until boarding time - there are no seats and no 'down' escalator (there is a small lift), so stay at ground level.

  • "Fun new experience "

    This was the longest boat trip on the biggest ship we have ever taken so were not sure what to expect. Booking was easy online from the UK, check in was quick and we were welcomed aboard and directed to our cabin. We did not book evening meal, but there were several other restaurants and cafes to choose from. The buffet breakfast which we did book was great - loads of choice, plenty of food and tea/coffee brought to the table. Our cabin (cheapest option) was below the car decks, so when the boat stopped briefly mid-cruise we heard the engines, but it was comfortable, clean, temperate and well-provisioned (sockets, lamps, towels, hairdryer, shower gel). We did not feel any rocking of the ship. Beds were comfy and the shower excellent. There were many lifts all in good working order. Inside seating areas were a bit limited unless you were in a bar or restaurant. There was a play area on the deck also with games for older children & even a spa bar with jacuzzis (at extra cost) . If you take your dog there is a toilet area for them on deck. Even though the ship was pretty full, it was never too crowded in any area. There are duty free shops on board. We were impressed!

Helsinki Guide

Located in the Uusimaa region of southern Finland, on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, is the city of Helsinki. The capital of Finland is roughly 80 km to the north of Tallinn in Estonia, 400 km to the north of Stockholm in Sweden and 300 km to the west of St Petersburg in Russia. Helsinki is widely regarded as one of the major cities in northern Europe and is the country's main hub for politics, finance, commerce and culture.

Popular visitor attractions in the city include Helsinki's largest museum, the National Museum of Finland. It contains a large collection of historical artefacts that date back to prehistoric times through to the present day. The museum's home, a neomedieval castle, is also a popular tourist attraction in its own right. The Helsinki City Museum, the Finnish National Gallery and the Design Museum are three other museums in the city that are worth visiting.

Helsinki's port, the largest in Finland and the second largest in the Nordic countries, has three harbours and 6 passenger terminals. Ferry services using the port depart to Stockholm in Sweden, Travemunde in Germany and Tallinn in Estonia.


Stockholm Guide

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.
