  • "Fun trip!"

    I took the ferry from Riga to Stockholm, an overnight trip. It was about the price as to fly and way more fun. There was entertainment and duty free shopping. Also, as a single traveler, I had my own cabin and bathroom. After some noisy hostels, it great to have a silent bunk! There were great places to hang out on the decks, but also lots of casual seating inside. I enjoyed the trip, and it was easy to get a city bus to the train/bus station at Stockholm city center. The ship left the pier on time and docked to minute of the projected time. I was impressed

  • "Riga-Stockholm"

    Nice ferry. A very large number of small children who were allowed to run wild through the night, jumping around and screaming in the corridors. Good catering with reasonably priced options for dinner and breakfast (sold by weight which was novel).

  • "Pretty Darn Good Ride from Stockholm to Riga"

    We had a de luxe outside cabin (9306) which was amidship port side. Good views of the archipelago on the outbound from Stockholm. The accommodations were very good, no complaints. The food was first-class; we ate in the Grand Buffet which well-worth it (endless beer and wine). The breakfast the next morning was also excellent. Our only complaint is that coffee is not served until 8AM and it was needed at 6AM! There has to be a way to have coffee earlier than 8AM because some of us get up earlier and need a couple of cups to get it in gear, and so not having the coffee until 8AM simply is not acceptable--6AM would be a good time to start with the coffee service as 8Am is too late. Get it with the coffee service? Again, a nice ride.

  • "Very nice! "

    I took the trip from Riga to Stockholm in a B class cabin and it was lovely. The buffet was amazing, so much vegan food! The cabin was nice, very small but that is expected on a ship. It was very good for the money, cheaper than a hotel in Stockholm and as it includes the trip that's pretty great. Wifi was not very good, you need to be in the common areas or presumably higher cabins to use it, but that is my only complaint.

  • "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.

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 !

  • "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.
