  • "Great experience "

    We done a day trip from Tallinn to Helsinki on board megastar quick and efficient boarding. Seating area was clean and spacious. Lots of amenities on board. Departed 15mins early and arrived on time, smooth crossing. On our way back to Tallinn we wanted to catch an earlier crossing the staff instantly changed our ferry to an earlier time.

  • "Day Excursion from Tallinn to Helsinki"

    From the outbound crossing to the return, the standard of the ferries, the promptness, efficiency of staff was excellent. The ferries appeared brand new and were akin to cruise liners with massive retail areas and restaurants bars. The new ferry port building at Tallinn was also first class. A great trip !

  • "Brilliant....but."

    The terminal and ship itself are huge, more like a cruise ship than a ferry. Very clean and inviting. The Megastar is so silent in operation due to it being gas powered you dont even know your moving. The facilities onboard are excellent as is the food. Pricey though. The only negative comment I can make is that some of the staff...bar staff..are not very friendly. I would even go as far as to say ....dam right RUDE!!

    Good service from booking tickets online to checking in at the terminal. It was very easy and efficient. The ferry was very clean, modern with nice interiors. There was plenty of seating areas and feeling of space. Good choice of places to eat and drink, which was of good quality and reasonable price. The embarkation very quick and efficient.

    As a way to spend a little time in Helsinki on our recent trip to Tallinn my friend and I booked tickets for the ferry which takes roughly two hours. Check in was quick and easy, there was no hassle at all to get on the ferry. The facilities were great and we enjoyed our travel.
