Ferry Stockholm Tips (4)

Arriving to Tallinn by boat

A great way to entry the city of Tallinn os by boat/ferry from Stockholm harbour. The trip will take about 24 hours but there's lot to do on the boat. I'll recommend Ttallinksilja ferry. Silja's ferries operate between Finland, Sweden and Estonia. It is one of the largest passenger and cargo shipping companies in the Baltic Sea region. In the northern Baltic Sea, two major rival companies, Viking Line and Silja Line, have for decades competed on the routes between Turku and Helsinki in Finland and Sweden's capital Stockholm. Since the 1990s Tallink has also risen as a notable company in the area, culminating with acquisition of Silja Line in 2006.

Arriving in Tallinn thru ferry from Stockholm

The cruise from Stockholm to Estonia

I rode the Silja/Tallink Romantika line which is a huge cruise ship with luxurious smorgasbords, duty-free shopping, and plenty of entertainment which include discos, saunas and gambling. I booked on-line while I was still in the USA (about 120 Euro for the one-way ferry and 10 Euro for the breakfast). The boat left from Frihamnen port.
My boat left Stockholm at about 6 PM and arrived the next day at about 10 AM in Tallinn, Estonia at Terminal D (see below).

Viking Lines is the competitor and has a more “party boat” reputation. It is like a Pepsi vs. Coke battle between these two lines which have the biggest and most inexpensive luxury hotels on the Baltic Sea.

Passenger terminals are located a short distance from the medieval Old Town of Tallin.
A-terminal serves Viking Line ferries to/from Helsinki, Eckerö Line ferry and SuperSeaCat high-speed vessels to Helsinki
B-terminal serves Eckerö Line ferries and SuperSeaCat high-speed vessels from Helsinki
C-terminal serves Nordic Jet Line's high-speed vessels to/from Helsinki
D-terminal serves Tallink ferries and high-speed vessels to/from Helsinki and Tallink ferries to/from Stockholm.
Linnahall terminal serves Linda Line's high-speed vessels to/from Helsinki

By Boat - the Most Scenic Way

There is no nicer way to arrive in Tallinn than by boat. It is always again a great experience when the mediaeval skyline with all its churchspires is slowly growing over the water. The ferries and catamarans from Helsinki circulate in a higher frequency than the buses and trams in Brussels so you might even forget the timetable. Connections from other places in Sweden, Germany and Russia are less frequent but also almost daily.

A cruise to Tallin

It is really great experience going on trip to different country by boat. We chose a Birka Cruise and boat called Birka Princess. The journey starts in Stcokholm on Boat terminal, then you have 16 hours on the boat and one day in Tallinn. After that you come back to Stockholm. The price for 4 person cabin is really cheap, and we even got a better deal - something like special offer! I recommend so much as its great fun on boat!
