The luxurious Silja Serenade can carry up to 2,850 passengers and once onboard you’ll feel like you’re on a city break in the middle of Europe. In early 2014 Silja Serenade went over an 6 week makeover to enhance its luxurious travel experience. At the centre of the ship is the Promenade where you’ll find a wide variety of shops, fascinating cafés and high class restaurants. In terms of facilities the Silja Serenade is one of the finest ships in its class and meets the high standards found on all Silja ships.
There’s a huge choice of cabins onboard the Silja Serenade ranging from standard inside cabins with bunk beds to luxury suites. All cabins are en-suite, air conditioned and contain a wardrobe, hair dryer, radio and telephone. During the re-fit a couple of the major changes were made to commodore suite, lounge area and three brand new elegant junior suites added to its already outstanding range of accommodation.
Silja Serenade’s restaurants serve delicious dishes to suit all tastes. From skilful creations that’ll delight all senses at the fine dining Bon Vivant restaurant to the famous seafood platter at the Happy Lobster fish restaurant or the ’Captain’s Sword’ skewer in El Capitán. You’ll also find a beautiful Italian restaurant, Tavolàta Ristorante Italiano where the menu is stylish but also relaxed offering many portions to share. For a bit of everything head to the Grande Buffet to fill your plate with roe, shrimps, traditional island dishes or tapas. For a snack try Mundo restaurant on the promenade.
There’s no shortage of places to drink onboard the Serenade either! Promenade Bar is ideal for a relaxing drink with friends while Keulabaari on deck 8 is an ideal spot for sipping a glass of bubbly while enjoying the fabulous views. For a taste of England in the Baltic try the Old Port Pub which is an authentic English pub specialising in beer, cider and whisky.
The New York Club & Lounge is a variation of a stylish lounge atmosphere and a party venue. Enjoy your favourite cocktails and listen to live piano music from the moment the ship departs. Later in the evening the place is taken over by karaoke fans and around midnight the restaurant transforms into a club filled with a lively party crowd. The resident DJ plays the hottest club music and the latest hits.
The Promenade on Silja Serenade is a lively shopping street in the middle of the Baltic Sea! Visit the trendy designer shops and purchase world-famous brands at low tax-free prices. Specialist shops include Silja Tax Free for spirits, wines, beer, cigarettes, sweets and food; Silja Perfumes offers the best-known quality brands in perfumes, cosmetics and skin-care; the Fashion shop on the Promenade specialises in accessories for men and women; the Deco shop offers a range of beautiful home necessities and gifts while in the Bon Vivant wine shop you can select from the most fabulous vintage wines. If jewellery, handbags or watches is what you are after then head to the luxury boutique on deck 7.
Roulette, Black Jack, poker games, one-armed bandits, dice games and more are on offer at the Silja Serenade's Casino. It really is a games oasis sparkling with the excitement of playing and the triumph of winning.
In the Bellamare Sauna & Wellbeing centre (deck 5) adults have the choice of numerous treatments. While in the Sunflower Oasis spa you’ll find a hair salon, sun beds and in the summer an bar will be open next to the spar area.
In Silja Land, the children’s playroom on the Promenade, you’ll find all kinds of fun activities from a ball pool to games, drawing material and toys. The playroom is supervised by professional assistants. The Sunflower Oasis spa with its whirlpools and water slides is a true paradise for water-loving youngsters so remember to pack the swimming stuff!

Protocol for boarding was simple and efficient. Staff were at hand to assist and guide, very helpful. Facilities bin board were of a high standard. Journey overnight was smooth and afforded a very good nights sleep. Amazing experience over all. Hope to do this again.

What an awesome experience! An amazing journey from Stockholm to Helsinki, with a wonderful midnight sunset as highlight. Room was small (what we already expected), but clean. Friendly staff and great entertainment. We had the buffet for dinner, which I would definitely recommend.

"Quick and Easy way to travel across the Baltic"
We were on a 2 week tour of Scandinavia and were on a budget. This ferry offered us a nights accommodation and our longest distance travelled fro approx £50 each. Yes the cabin we had wasn't exactly luxurious but it was clean, had electricity to charge our electronics and an acceptable bathroom. The biggest problem that we had was receiving WIFI signal on our deck however as we wandered further up the ship this wasn't a problem. The staff were excellent - friendly and helpful and could give us tips on what to do and where to go when we arrived in Stockholm. If I were to travel again I may be tempted to pay more for a better cabin but in all honesty for all the time we spent in our cabin it really was perfect for our needs!

"Lovely trip to helsinki"
This ferry had freindly crew, clean cabins and a selection of entertainment. The fare was reasonable. I would however skip the fast food, as it was attrocious... Perhaps the resteraunts are more worth the wait. Other than that the ferry trip was a lovely surprise as it is much more like a cruise...

We had recently crossed from Stockholm to Helinsinki on Silja Serenade, very nice experience. Booking was done on line and although cabins were at 2nd level ( class), those were good, no issues. Cabin was clean and bathroom was of good size. We had paid extra as made almost last minute booking, i am sure if you book well in advance, can be more economical. The check - in process was efficient and the staff were helpful. Although the weather was not warm that night, so were unable to use the deck and missed the sun set or rise. Although the dinner buffet looked good, we ate in a restaurant and had the best veggie burger. There are many restaurants and food choices, Atlantis and New York with live shows and music. The terminal for Silja is Olympia in Helisinki and you can IA or 2A metro to the central station. Tourist information is about 10 mins walk , close to Viking terminal and have very nice food in the tents. Will recommend Silja over a flight or viking line due to their renovated /new ferries.

Helsinki to Stockholm with motorcycle. We booked through Direct ferries and got different options on the website for an advantageous price. The serive onboard was great, great food especially for me as I'm a vegetarian. All staff was very friendly och competent which I among other things liked when we were parking our motorcycles.
