  • "Great ferry trip"

    My initial thoughts were a little disappointment as our cabin had a strange smell and seemed a little tired. I later noticed dog hair so guess it was a pet friendly cabin. Hence the smell. The rest if the ship however was EXCELLENT. Better than several cruise ships Ive been on. The dinner buffet was extremely good. Great choice of warm and cold, veggie, vegan, meat and fish. Beer, wine included along with water soft drinks, tea and coffee. The breakfast was equally good. Very organised ship with very friendly, helpful staff.

  • "Helsinki to Tallinn and return with Viking Ferries."

    Although we were able to find seats we thought it unusual that there was no dedicated seating area. So we were in the nightclub with childrens entertainment and Bingo on the way out and sat in one of the cafes on the way back. Both legs were late morning on different though similar ferries. Terminal buildings at both ends are modern with good facilities. Paperwork from direct Ferries urges you to get to the terminal 90 minutes beforehand but Viking advised 45 minutes which was plenty. The ships do quite a quick turnaround and foot passengers board about 20 mins before sailing.

  • "Good experience "

    Pleasant journey. However a lot of people are disrespectful and drunk after 20 min. It means that a lot of trash are on the decks and that it can be very noisy during the night.

  • "Sailing to Stockholm"

    A great way to arrive in Stockholm from Helsinki. The views as the ship glides in through the islands of the Stockholm arcipelago make it well worth getting up early before docking in the capital. The smorgesbord buffet dinner is good with a good selection of hot and cold dishes and as the ship wasn't over busy on our voyage it was reasonably relaxed. Only negative for us was the lack of seating available after check in at the terminal in Helsinki. Don't bother going up to tge departure level until boarding time - there are no seats and no 'down' escalator (there is a small lift), so stay at ground level.

  • "Nice Ferry but room is too small"

    Eventually I have booked the lower bed room for 2 people but when I checked in they provided to me bunker room, I have to pay extra EURO 23 to upgrade the room as the room is too small. Should provide mineral water in each cabin. Breakfast was good.

  • "Overnight Helsinki to Stockholm"

    Pleasantly surprised. Lots to do on board. Tax free shopping. Range of restaurants/cafes. Bar with music. Able to change money to SEK and buy bus ticket to central Stockholm. Wish I'd booked an outside cabin instead of an inside cabin but had everything I needed except Wifi (could not get connected).

  • "lovely voyage but hellish experience connecting with DIRECT FERRIES"

    I had to contact direct ferries, i called the no 3 to 4 times and held on for more than 10 mins each time and could not get thru. The email I sent had the same futile result and till date is unanswered. I would suggest avoiding DIRECT FERRIES as they cannot offer after sales service despite willing to pay the high charges for speaking to them for any reason. The VIKING FERRY service to Helsinki was perfect and extremely pleasant and comfortable journey
