  • "Very efficient, lots of amenities. "

    The ferry is very fast and the boarding is very efficient. Its obvious they do this route many times a day. Many options for food, supermarket etc. I was extremely tired on this ferry and could have done with lying down. Could have had a cinema sort of room.

  • "A Great Service, Especially the Seat Upgrade "

    I went for a day trip to Tallinn from Helsinki and the ferry was an excellent way to go. I especially appreciated the upgrade to comfort class after a long day walking around Tallinn. The ferry was VERY full and crowded, but comfort class was quiet and I even caught a quiet nap on the sofa on the journey back.

  • "Quick, convenient and comfortable"

    We travelled on the Tallink Silja feery between Helsinki and Tallinn on 25th June, and found the service both quick and convenient. As we had opted to travel "Comfort Class", we had the use of a special lounge with complimentary drinks and snacks, making the journey an extremely pleasant experience. Moreover the ferry arrived on time!

  • "Ferry fun!?"

    I didn't ever think I'd write a review about a ferry journey from one location to the next but I am... It was actually super fast, efficient and weirdly enough fun! You had funky music and lounger chairs outside with open bar to admire the views leaving Helsinki and live music and entertainment on board to! Loads of fun and games too for anyone with kids as they had a children's entertainment team ...but I quite enjoyed singing along to that too much to my boyfriends dismay. All in all a great experience...the quickest 2 hours spent on a ferry ever!!!!
