Eckerö Line operates ferry crossings between Finland and Estonia, on the popular Helsinki-Tallinn route, across the Gulf of Finland.
Part of the Rederiaktiebolaget Eckero Group, Eckero Line was founded in 1995 to meet the demands of a quick route between Finland and Estonia. Making the journey in just over two hours, Eckero Line’s M/S Finlandia maintains a friendly and cosy atmosphere on-board, having earned its name from almost twelve thousand customer suggestions. Coloured in Finnish blue and white, M/S Finlandia boasts six restaurants, two shops and conference facilities, while the capacity for passengers reaches two thousand, and it can hold six hundred and fifty vehicles.
The entirety of Eckero Group complies with strict environmental standards, and M/S Finlandia is one of the pioneering vessels. Using low sulphur fuel and energy-efficient bulbs for the spotlights, it also collects waste heat from the engines, utilising it in the cooling systems during summer, leaving little trace in the Baltic Sea.

We paid 18 euros each to access the lounge on board snd it was well worth it. The longe is located right by the entrance where foot passengers board and you get free drinks (coffee, tea, soft drinks, beer and wine) and snacks like cheese and biscuits, fruit, cake etc. Staff were lovely, really friendly and the lounge area had tables and chairs/ even though it was quite busy there was enough space for everyone. Crossing both ways was smooth and whilst we didn't explore the rest of the ship it is very big and very modern. Really impressed with the whole experience.

"A fine way to end my mini-Baltic tour!"
Was blessed with clear blue skies on the last leg of my mini Baltic tour. The terminal in Tallinn is within easy walking distance of the beautiful Tallinn Old Town, with clean, modern and efficient facilities. Check-in was very straight forward and painless, crossing prices very reasonable. personally, I like to be outside and take in the details of the journey, but if you prefer creature comforts, there is loads on board to keep you occupied - shops, bars and salons (the journey is just 2.5 h), even entertainment. The only tussle I had was with a left-luggage locker, which ate €2 and wouldn't give them back, but a nice lady on the information desk was able to sort it out for me. I had a pretty decent hot meal, my requirements mimed successfully with friendly, good-natured compliance! Disembarkment at the Helsinki end was equally painless, with a taxi rank/bus stop immediately outside the entrance.

"Easy and simple"
Very easy to book the tickets and everything at the port and on the boat went easily. However, I was surprised to see that for my ticket to be valid I had to arrive 90 minutes before the ferry at the latest as most foot passengers arrived after this time. Is this really the rule or was my e-mail confirmation wrong?
