  • "Smooth & cool!"

    An excellent overall experience! The car check-in was a bit too long (waiting in a queue), but then went quite smoothly. Boarding and stay was great! In general, food, drinks and shopping was far too expensive (even when duty free) - if this was made more affordable, I guess everyone will then drink and dine on board. Cabin and the ferry itself was very nice. De-boarding was genuinely smooth.

    Fantastic trip - magical sailing through the Turku Archipelago as the sun set and we ate delicious food in The Happy Lobster. Great cabin with comfortable double bed (we were travelling premium class). Premium class really worth it for the nice cabin and the incredible breakfast - I have NEVER had such a good breakfast!!

  • "A very pleasant journey "

    We travelled on the Baltic Princess as part of a Scandinavian holiday. On arriving at the ferry terminal in Stockholm early in the morning we were disappointed to find the cafe closed as we were hoping for a coffee and a bite to eat whilst we waited to board. In general we were very happy with the voyage. We sat out on deck for much of the journey watching the archipelago islands glide by. We had lunch in the grande buffet which, as with most buffets, is reasonably good value if you have a large appetite. There was a wide range of food available of a satisfactory quality. Frustratingly we found that many of the ship’s restaurants are closed from 12-2 so we had lunch a little later than we would have liked. Our only other complaint is that the ship’s bar would not refill our water bottles. Where we live in the UK many businesses will happily do this in recognition of the fact that we need to discourage the use of reusable plastics. It would be nice to see the ferry company showing the same environmental concern. Overall, the ship was clean and well organised and the staff were friendly. We would happily travel with this ferry company again.

  • "Stockholm - Turku"

    Well, this was far more than i expected, at such a great price, and a great way to get across from Stockholm to Turku or Helsinki. £20 i paid and was able to watch the on board entertainment, eat the great food from the restaurant (not inc). But definately a 5 star way of getting across. Loved the journey !

    Amorella is a very elegant ship. The dinner is first rate with attentive and fast service in the restaurant. Room is fine. Just take a shower before bed as the boat gets in early and turns around to go back within an hour.

  • "Awesome choice! "

    I thought it was a simple (and boring) ferry at first and was surprised by catching myself in the middle of a cruise ship. So many fun things to do! I would definitely recommend it over and over to anyone. Thank you Direct Ferries, I had a great experience!

  • "Stockholm to Turku 9 Apr"

    Great trip, but could would be god to have smokers confined to certain areas. As a non-smoker, going onto the deck for fresh air and the views was often marred by smokers pollution. Otherwise, all good, an enjoyable trip, with good catering.

  • "Turku-Stockholm Trip"

    We slept overnight and it was nearly impossible due to the loud music below us. Hence there were a lot of vibrations from the ship itself but that was pretty manageable for me. What my friend and I can really complain about is the hard bed. The one in our van we travelled with is much softer :) So in conclusion, I would welcome a little bit softer beds than the one we had to sleep on.

  • "Warning Economy Class Travel - Noise "

    All E-Class Cabins are over the Nightclub / Disco. I did not realise this when I booked. I am a seasoned traveler and used to noise, so I go packed with ear plugs. WOW, these cabins are directly above the speakers. Not only is the music very very very loud you also feel the thumping base come up through the floor and through the bed. Luckily I was able to change cabins at the cost of Euro 10. The staff were polite and explained that the web site does say there can be noise heard in these cabins. Checking the Silja Line web site it says : "E-CLASS Due to cabin location you may experience some noise." There is no "may" about it, the noise is there every night and intolerable. Otherwise, very nice cabins and very good services on the ship. The restaurants serve excellent food, I was very impressed, although they can be busy. A good service to travel on, just don't book E-Class.

  • "Kids loved it"

    This was the homeward leg of our journey. On the outbound trip we had a 4 berth outside cabin, this time we had the inside cabin which lacks an outside window. That was a bit of a disappointment to the kids, it's nice to sit in the cabin before bedtime and see the archipelago drift by but it was not a big issue. Bunk beds in the 4 berth cabin were fine for all of us (I'm 1m96). We didn't book dinner on either trip, there were no window seats left at the buffet (and no space at all on the outbound trip) but we were able to get a table at the Grill House from which we could see the sea. Their salad buffet is a much better deal than the big buffet in my opinion - you don't really need 100 options - and there was a children's buffet with pasta, fries and pancakes as well. On the outbound leg we dined at the Italian restaurant, which was very good. We would do the same again. Kids (5 & 3) loved the play corner. Not much need for the rest of the entertainment.
