  • "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!!!

  • "Lovely daytrip to Tallinn from Helsinki "

    Booked a ferry to take us to Tallinn for the day. I was very pleased with the ferries booked, they left on time, there was plenty of facilities and entertainment on board and we generally enjoyed the journeys. Had to do some research to confirm what terminal we leave from in Helsinki because there is two terminals. Would like to have that information attached to the booking but apart from that I was very pleased with the service.

  • "Very efficient, lots of amenities. "

    The ferry is very fast and the boarding is very efficient. Its obvious they do this route many times a day. Many options for food, supermarket etc. I was extremely tired on this ferry and could have done with lying down. Could have had a cinema sort of room.
