  • "Beautifully clean and efficient ship"

    We had read a few comments about grubby areas and disgusting toilets but we saw nothing like this. The staff were quick to clean up and mess travellers had left without complaint.

  • "Smooth Sailing"

    We were foot passengers travelling from Tallin to Helsinki. Nice lady checked us in. Good facilities in board was surprised by entertainment man singing and then the karaoke provided some good laughs. Didn’t eat but the bar staff were great. Disembarked with no problems and the taxi rank was right outside. Thanks to the crew

  • "Echero Line"

    Very much recommended ferry! 2.15 hrs travel time and all needed for this travel time facilities on board including the shop with F&B and cosmetics. One mistake that i’ve regret of is booking the tickets via directferries.co.uk Overpaid and not clear instructions wrt the boarding passes which still needed to be obtained as well as overloading with the emails with surveys for the online booking services. Guys please improve the instructions so they can be more clear. Thank you anyways
