hello. We used it with 6 Korean people. I used Helsinki and Tallinn for a day round trip. The sunset I saw on the way to Helsinki was most beautiful. All of us in our team were very impressed. However, I have a question that I would like to ask. Our ship was supposed to depature from Tallinn to Helsinki at 7: 30 PM. However, the ship had already departed approximately 10 minutes ago. Of course, our group was already on board the ship. I asked the staff at the pub why the ship is leaving so early, but the communitions didn't work well. The clock time of the staff at the pub was the same as mine. and it was correct that we departed before the departure time even at that time I would like to refer to it for the next use, so please reply.

It was a beautiful trip, the ferry very clean and elegant (Show up at least 30 minutes before because it leaves early and the first time you have to check in with an ID card at the desk to get the round trip tickets). Tallinn is very beautiful and we were lucky enough to find a not very cold and snowy day to fully enjoy the Christmas atmosphere with lots of typical dances inside the Christmas markets. The vaccination certificate was or requested only upon returning to Helsinki to enter Estonia they did not ask us for anything

In Helsinki the tram line 7 goes directly to Terminal 2 at the port. Arrived in Tallinn after a 2 hour crossing. The time until the departure of the ferry was sufficient for a tour of the city. The Christmas market was very nice. Be sure to go to the viewpoint. From there you have a wonderful view of the entire city.
