"Ship Good, Direct Ferry Lousy"
I got to the ship harbor in Tallinn and they had no record of me or of any payment to Direct Ferries. I had to pay again to get my rooms. Buy this time the choices were more limited. The ferry itself was a delight.

The Estonian city of Tallinn is located on the northern coast of the country, on the shores of the Gulf of Finland. It is around 80 km to the south of Helsinki, east of Stockholm in Sweden and west of St Petersburg in Russia. The old town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the city as a whole was a European City of Culture in 2011, along with Turku in Finland. The city is Estonia's financial and business hub and benefits from liberal economic policy and has a highly diversified economy although its main strengths are in IT, tourism and logistics.
Tallinn's port offers ferry crossing to Finland and Sweden. The ferry terminals at the port deal with around 6 million passengers each year and has good facilities including shops, a coffee shop and departure lounges. In addition to dealing with passenger ferries, the port also caters for cruise ships and high speed ferries during the summer months. There are daily sailings between Tallinn and Stockholm and Helsinki and two sailings a week to St Petersburg in Russia.
The autonomous territory of Mariehamn, which is under Finish sovereignty, is the capital of Aland and its town and harbour is a great place to explore and can be done so quite easily on foot, by bicycle or by bus. The four masted barque and sailing ship Pommern is located where ferries arrive in the town and is below Aland's Maritime Museum by the Badhusparken. A popular attraction in the town is St. Goran's Church which is located halfway along the Esplanaden Boulevard, which is lined with Lime trees and runs from Vasterhamn to Osterhamn. It is worth heading into central Mariehamn to the Torgatten pedestrian precinct as this is where many of the town's shops, cafes and restaurants can be found here. In this area is where you will also find the town and region's seat of power, the Sjalvstyrelsegarden, which is made up of Aland's parliament and provincial government, the town hall and other government buildings.
The town is located on a peninsular and has two main harbours, one on the western shore and the other on the eastern shore. Both remain ice-free for almost the whole year and are non-tidal. The western harbour is where daily services to Sweden, Estonia and mainland depart from. The town's eastern harbour is the location of one of the largest marinas in Scandinavia.
