It's a ferry with beds, but it'll get you there and (hopefully) get you home. I had read the negative reviews so had low expectations, but overall the boat was ok. I flew from Stockholm to Helsinki to pick up the cruise to save time....More

Had a great experience despite some not so flattering reviews here. Our room was small and clean, the buffet for dinner and breakfast was ample and kept being refilled. Some of you sterile travellers will not find this to your "Disney cruise" standard but it...More

So.... 1. I traveled alone and didn't have to share my cabin with a stranger. That was nice. 2. The final drop off point of the "city tour" shuttle is very close to a great hostel if that's the type of place you're interested in:...More
