  • "Helsinki to Tallinn and return with Viking Ferries."

    Although we were able to find seats we thought it unusual that there was no dedicated seating area. So we were in the nightclub with childrens entertainment and Bingo on the way out and sat in one of the cafes on the way back. Both legs were late morning on different though similar ferries. Terminal buildings at both ends are modern with good facilities. Paperwork from direct Ferries urges you to get to the terminal 90 minutes beforehand but Viking advised 45 minutes which was plenty. The ships do quite a quick turnaround and foot passengers board about 20 mins before sailing.
