Stockholm Helsinki Ferry reviews

  • "Trip to Stockholm "

    It was very noisy ferry ⛴ to Stockholm. During the night I could hear car sounds, engine working, the ship was going quit a lot from side to side. Also, most of entertainments is in Finnish so nothing to do for others.

  • "Tallinn to Helsinki crossing"

    We stayed in a 4 berth cabin on the 2nd deck because it was cheap. Room absolutely fine and beds very comfy. There was no mobile signal in the room and the wifi generally didn’t work on the boat until just before we docked. Very pleasant crossing.
