  • "Fantastic"

    I stayed on board as the ship went from Stockholm to Helsinki. The ship has a fantastic selection of facilities and services. This route offers fantastic views of the Stockholm Archipelago, particularly at sunset. I had a comfortable stay and would definitely consider having a longer stay in the future.

  • "Scenic views & comfortable journey across the Baltic"

    Easy check in. Great price. Departed on time and enjoyed scenic views from the outside sun decks. Enjoyed the Viking Buffet. Good selection although price is on the steep side (€36 per adult). Had the cheapest inside piccolo cabin with bunk beds. It was comfortable enough for two adults for one night, however I wouldn't recommend bunk beds for kids or elderly travellers. Getting out of the top bunk isn't very fun! Watched a good live band and magician in the cafe del mar area. Good entertainment to pass some time. Got up early the next morning and enjoyed great views coming into Helsinki. Would travel again if I was in the area. Definitely more of an experience than flying.

  • "Great and smooth travel"

    A smooth travel by boat. There were enough benches for everyone and the ship was clean and tidy. The only downside for me were all the (cigar) smoking people. I would have liked it if there would have been a non-smoking area outside as well.

  • "An excellent trip"

    Sailing from Helsinki to Stockholm was always a dream as we had heard so many good comments about sailing through the archipelago and we had never visited Stockholm. The trip was everything we had hoped for. A comfortable cabin, attentive and helpful staff, great food (both dinner and breakfast) and an easy arrival. Overall a great experience that we would be keen to repeat.

  • "Efficient and Effective - on-line booking to boarding and then the crossing."

    Excellent experience. Absolutely no complaints at all. Booked on line with a smart phone with Direct Ferries, showed the check in lady the email response on the phone and then straight on. Modern ship, comfortable and efficient all the way.

  • "pleasantly surprised"

    Given the inexpensive cost of this ferry, we were prepared for a mediocre experience. However, everything was marvelous - efficient boarding, clean room and bathroom, wonderful restaurants, helpful staff. I highly recommend this ferry for travelling between Helsinki and Stockholm.

  • "Such a deal!"

    We were not sure what the Ferry would be like but it seemed like a good idea to be able to have lodging and get from Stockholm to Helsinki at the same time. We were so right! The ship was not a luxury ocean liner but it was comfortable enough and clean enough. We had 2 great meals in the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast the next morning. This was a great idea!

  • "Enjoyable voyage"

    We switched to a larger room because the assigned accomodation was tiny. This made the difference from a horrible trip to a nice one. The ship was pleasant and modern. The dinner buffet very good.

  • "On our way to Savonlinna"

    We had an amazing crossing from Stockholm, calm waters, beautiful sunset and great food at the a la carte restaurant. En nice and quiet night resulted in a good nights sleep and the breakfast in the big dining room was plentiful, but a bit busy. On the return journey it was hard to get something to eat, you couldn't reserve tables anywhere and the queues were long and slow for the other food places, it disappointed us. The ferry seemed overcrowded and the staff were indifferent and seemingly annoyed with the customers, it was messy in the corridors before people had found their cabins. Despite this we were happy with the trip and we got good value for the money.
