  • "Ferry Stockholm to Riga"

    We booked our trip whilst in the U.K.. Check in at Stockholm was simple as was the bus journey from the city centre. We were very pleased with our "inside" cabin and it's en suite. We had not expected the facilities and entertainment provided and really enjoyed our journey- it was a mini cruise and one of the holiday highlights. We shall repeat the trip next year.

  • " The only way to travel to Riga"

    In mid October my wife and another couple travelled from Stockholm to Riga by Ferry. We read reviews that food and drink were expensive but we found them to be reasonable. The entertainment on board was excellent as was the room accomodations. Sailing was smooth and time went by quickly. If given the opportunity it is the only way to travel.

  • "A pleasant and comfortable journey."

    This is a well appointed ship with something for every type of traveller - entertainment, shopping, etc. As a single passenger with only the need to make a relaxing transition from one port to another, I found it ideal. Helped by balmy autumn weather and a calm sea, the crossing felt effortless. The cabin was an internal one and somewhat small but adequate as I had it to myself - it was built to accommodate two people and that would have been cramped. I enjoyed a good night's sleep. The meals I had were excellent and not over-priced. Overall I was very pleased with my experience.

    We very much enjoyed our trip from Stockholm to Riga on the ship Isabelle. The staff were very pleasant and the facilities were well organized ,we ate very well..also our cabin was impeccably clean . Thank you. There was plenty of entertainment if you wanted it, but, as we had excellent weather we were mostly on deck enjoying the beautiful Islands of the archipelago.

  • "Riga to Stockholm .. What a delight "

    Driving back from Russia to England we opted to take the more scenic route through Scandinavia thus securing a place on the Tallinn silja ferry from riga to Stockholm.. I'm not normally that guy that writes reviews but I make the exception here today .. What a beautiful ferry with a cracking variety of activities taking place all through the night .. Initially planned on having a couple of pints and a nice lie in but ended up dancing the night away at the nighttime disco and drinking whiskey with a few chaps in the skylight bars till the early hours .. Still suffering from the hangover a week on but well worth it !

  • "Travel with the worst boat from Riga"

    I did not like the ship very much. First of all our cabin underneath car deck was not clean and had stains on the wall. We upgraded and paid for a better cabin. Not many activities on board.

  • "A Trip Highlight"

    Crossing the Baltic on the Esabelle is the only way to get from Stockholm to Riga (or vice-versa) if you appreciate stress-free, leisurable travel. The ship is laden with bars and restaurants, coupled with entertainment and a helpful and friendly crew, enabling you to wile away the time as you cruise into the sunset. Highly recommended.

  • "Review"

    We were 2 people travelling - me and my son. The trip to Latvia was better than expected due to the band that played. On the way back there was to our disappointment another band playing and they were a bit boring. The windows on the ferry should have been cleaner so you could get a better view. The food was good, the cake as well. There were fun activities for children and adults. The staff was friendly and helpful. Good experiences. We especially want to thank Dace who organised activities and made the evening more fun. Great girl who speaks many languages and if she doesn't know the language she handles the situation nicely and in an fun way. I was very happy to be able to take the bus home that was waiting at the port when we arrived. Very easy and comfortable. You don't have to muddle around with trains and several buses. Well done! I will travel again and recommend to others.

  • "17 hours of pure relax"

    We really liket the Isabelle ferry. It was full of entertainment options and full of people but we could relax on our own and feel as if we were the only people in the ship, appreciating calmly the Swedish islands and the sunset. Later on we watched the band presentation and went to the lively nightclub before going to our cabin. Dinner was very nice, breakfast could be improved, but overall it was a nice experience that we would recommend to other people who are going from Stockholm to Riga.

  • "The ship's amenities"

    We thought it was a bit crowded in the cabins and the hallways, but the troubadours on board the ship were wonderful. We did not appreciate the music in the dancing bar, but we are older people who prefer to dance swing. The contest was fun and exciting, otherwise a good trip.

  • "Smooth sailing!"

    Excellent service from start to finish. Check in fast and efficient, great facilities on the boat. The cabin was more than adequate and clean. The only negative was the restaurants were very pricey for us Brits, but probably normal for the Scandinavian markets that they mostly serve.
