  • "Day trip to Tallinn"

    We are a family on a short break to Helsinki and decided to go to Tallinn on a day trip. Check in on the Megastar was easy and we were pleasantly surprised about the ship, we were expecting a trypival cross channel ferry but this was full of facilities, spacious, clean and not crowded. Food was good and we arrived on time. On the way back (evening) we had added a cabin and this was great after a day of walking around Tallinn. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tallinn Silja and the Megastar.

  • "Day Trip in August"

    The ferry terminal in Helsinki was only a short walk from our hotel, around the harbour. The ships were clean and the facilities very good. The ferry terminally Tallinn would benefit from clear direction signs to the Old Town! Otherwise, it was all good.

  • "I feel like on a cruise holiday! "

    I was surprised about this ship! Easy check in and out. Clean terminals and most of all the ship. The moment I enter brings back the memories when I was on cruise holiday. I like everything about this ship. Modern facilities and interiors with amenities that will keep you busy the whole trip. It add up to my holiday experience. I scored low to staff competence because one thing I noticed they do not smile much and greet passengers. I am a firm believer if they do it, it makes such difference to your experience!!!

  • "Way above expectations "

    Frankly, I was amazed with the Megastar as soon as we came onboard. I expected the usual drab ferry with a few sad and unhealthy snacks to eat and likely not enough room to sit. I was 100% wrong on all counts. We ate delicious food and wine and were able to enjoy the super clean and well-furnished dining room and aft garden with lots of room. I appreciate that there didn’t seem to be a lot of single-use plastics. I have already told a few friends to be sure to book this ferry for upcoming crossings.

  • "Trip to Helsinki "

    Stopping in Tallinn for four nights we decided to take a trip over to Helsinki. Booking was easy, checked in on line and used phones for boarding passes. The sailings were on time and facilities plentiful and comfortable. We would certainly recommend and use ourselves again.
