Mariehamn Helsinki Ferry reviews

  • "ups and downs"

    I made two bookings within one week. the first one was smooth and went very well, the second was not so good, and got a little stressful closer to the travel dates! On the boat from Stockholm to Åland, we (me and my young boy) just needed to be on the boat and enjoy the ride for a few hours. The boat has a playground for young children, we spent our morning there, then move to the cafeteria for lunch and all was great! Food at cafeteria was great. All other restaurants were closed until 2pm, or only offering fish buffet (not best when with a small child). The second ride was a day later from Åland to Helsinki. The boat departed at midnight. The booking was not confirm but the money had been debited. I was asked if I wanted to confirm my booking, twice, and twice I confirmed before getting my confirmation email. Arriving at the harbor, my booking was under another name, my son had another nationality , in brief all personal details were mixed up! The personnel at the harbor was lovely though and really did their best to not stress us up further. Finally on the boat to discover we had the worst cabin ever under the car park deck. I wished I had been asked what type of cabin I wanted to book rather than discover this at the last minute. Additionally, the keys to the cabin did not work on first time, midnight with a child I was tired to have to run between info desk and our beds... The music from teh neighbor cabin was on until 3am. The children playground area the next morning was great once again. So in brief: easy to book but not all details about cabin types were offered. And booking system probably had a failure, which made us (the harbor personnel and myself) have a good laugh just before midnight!

Mariehamn is the capital of Aland which is an autonomous territory under Finish sovereignty. In common with the rest of Aland, Mariehamn is unilingually Swedish speaking with around 80% of its residents speaking it as their native language. Visitors to the town will find most of the shops and restaurants in the town located in the Torggatan pedestrian precinct in the centre of the town. The seat of power, the Sjalvstyrelsegarden, is also in the square and is made up of Aland's parliament and provincial government, the town hall and the government building. There is a statue of Tsarinna Marie Aleksandrovna, who gave her name to the town in 1861, located on the slope leading to the town. In the town there are a number of buildings designed by Finnish architect Lars Sonck, who moved to Aland as a child. Buildings of his include the church of Mariehamn, the main building of the Aland maritime College and the town hall, all built in the first half of the 20th century. Hilda Hongell also designed several buildings, although only a few remain standing.

Mariehamn is located on a peninsular and has two main harbours, one on the eastern shore and one on the western shore. Both harbours remain ice-free for nearly the whole year and both are non-tidal.
