  • "Day out in Helsinki"

    What a great way of seeing two beautiful cities. By leaving Tallinn at 7.30 in the morning we were able to have 10 hours in Helsinki - enough time to get a taste of this lovely country and to vow to return. The Megastar and Star Tallink ferries were comfortable (Megastar slightly more so) and spacious and the two hours on board passed quickly eating, shopping and watching the views. Direct Ferries made booking easy and good value - second time I've used them and I would recommend for a very efficient service.

  • "Port description missing"

    It was nowhere written in my booking confirmation or on the webpage itself from which harbour the ferry is leaving. Helsinki has several ports, I had to find out by phoning! That was not ok at all and should be changed! The rest, entering the ferry and the trip itself were perfect, very clean, good food! Kind regards Andreas Kranz

    We had a good trip to Tallin. The only compliant is there is not enough general seating. We were lucky to get seats, but lots of people were walking around trying to find somewhere to sit.

  • "Excellent service"

    So easy. Brilliantly automated service but they also had check in desks. All signposted and with English option. Lots of place to sit. The only thing I would say which I thought was brilliant but may catch someone else out is you needed to arrive more than 30 mins before as they start boarding 50 mins before and left early.

  • "Excellent service "

    I actually had a tricky situation. I first bought a ticket that was leaving Helsinki at 7:30 am, but changed my mind two days prior to the trip and changed it to one that was leaving at 10:30. Everything went perfectly. I had received the confirmation of the hour change in the same day as the one that I have made the request. And the trip went smoothly.

  • "Amazing trip but not forget to be there 30 minutes earlier"

    I did return trip between Tallin and Helsinki and it was amazing. The ships have a lot of things to keep you entertained. However, keep in mind that you must be there more than 30 minutes earlier to do the check in. If you are not, you will not be able to embark. The tickets do not clarify this properly.

  • "Beautiful ship sailing to a beautiful place"

    I enjoyed every minute of my voyage on the Megastar to/from Tallinn for a day excursion. This 2017 built ship is to a very high standard in every way. Anyone taking this line should note that they must arrive at the terminal in good time as they won't wait for latecomers: on the return trip from Tallinn we actually puked away from the dock 15 minutes early. Enjoy your voyage!

  • "Surpasses expectation"

    The service was impeccable.To be frank, I didn't have a high expectation of the ferry, I had imagined some cold, damp boat. But the MegaStar, truly is a megastar. There's restaurants, a bar and a shopping complex n board. And bountiful seating. I sat in a quiet area, there were plugs to charge my devices and even 1GB of free Wi-Fi. Clean and comfortable enough to take a nap as many others did. There's lockers where you can keep your stuff, so if you decide to take a nap, you don't have to worry about your belongings going missing. There was even a trolley service in the area I sat in, so I really didn't have to move when I got comfortable. All in all, a very pleasant ride to Helsinki.
