Stockholm Helsinki Ferry reviews

  • "Ship itself was great, some problems with direct ferries!"

    Everything about Silja Symohony was of their usual, great standard. Ships are clean and punctual and I was glad to see they’ve done updating of their economy class cabins which are perfectly adequate for the crossing to Stockholm and back. BUT we did have a problem with our booking. Nowhere on our booking from direct ferries was it made clear this was not a single smooth booking and we would have to check out in Stockholm and check back in again later on (meaning we could not keep our things in our cabin, a major inconvenience when we are just visiting Stockholm for a day trip and have to lug around heavy baggage). This is not the fault of Silja but would have cost €70 to rectify. It would have been nice to have some indication of this somewhere before booking or at least on confirmation of booking.
