Helsinki Stockholm Ferry reviews

  • "Fun new experience "

    This was the longest boat trip on the biggest ship we have ever taken so were not sure what to expect. Booking was easy online from the UK, check in was quick and we were welcomed aboard and directed to our cabin. We did not book evening meal, but there were several other restaurants and cafes to choose from. The buffet breakfast which we did book was great - loads of choice, plenty of food and tea/coffee brought to the table. Our cabin (cheapest option) was below the car decks, so when the boat stopped briefly mid-cruise we heard the engines, but it was comfortable, clean, temperate and well-provisioned (sockets, lamps, towels, hairdryer, shower gel). We did not feel any rocking of the ship. Beds were comfy and the shower excellent. There were many lifts all in good working order. Inside seating areas were a bit limited unless you were in a bar or restaurant. There was a play area on the deck also with games for older children & even a spa bar with jacuzzis (at extra cost) . If you take your dog there is a toilet area for them on deck. Even though the ship was pretty full, it was never too crowded in any area. There are duty free shops on board. We were impressed!

  • "Sailing to Stockholm"

    A great way to arrive in Stockholm from Helsinki. The views as the ship glides in through the islands of the Stockholm arcipelago make it well worth getting up early before docking in the capital. The smorgesbord buffet dinner is good with a good selection of hot and cold dishes and as the ship wasn't over busy on our voyage it was reasonably relaxed. Only negative for us was the lack of seating available after check in at the terminal in Helsinki. Don't bother going up to tge departure level until boarding time - there are no seats and no 'down' escalator (there is a small lift), so stay at ground level.
