We chose the 6.5h option in Helsinki, with a departure at 10:30 am - return 7:30 pm. With the constructions, not very easy to find in Tallinn Terminal D. You have to arrive in advance and exchange the voucher for the tickets. The reservation number is the most important. The boat is huge, there weren't a lot of tourists. Sea of oil, sun, but take a small sweater because it is windy. Possibility to eat and drink on the boat. When arriving in Helsinki, several possibilities: take tram 7 or 9 to go to the center (but it's a big city, not a lot of interesting things to see). We opted to go to Suomenlinna, the maritime fortress. The ferry there leaves from the city center, we took a taxi to go there as it is far. We spent 3 hours at this peaceful place. The taxi cost € 16, the ferry € 1.50 (the price of a ticket). Tallinn is not expensive, but in Helsinki the prices are high. Masks are regularly worn in transport.

Everything worked smoothly, the crossing is carried out very professionally. Had booked the Comfort Lounge (additional € 48, as of July 2020), I would probably not do that again. There was a buffet with bread, cheese, ham, snacks and hot and cold non-alcoholic drinks. The Comfort Lounge is equipped with spacious seating.

Great experience .. if you stay a few days in Tallinn take the time a day to do this tour. Validated ticket to be picked up at tallinn terminal D easy to find. The boat is of very high class at least 5 restaurants, video games, the possibility of taking a VIP lounge. In Helsinki, tram 7 stops Just outside the arrival terminal and drops you off at the Place du Sénat. Plan a maximum of 4 hours to visit the city (excluding meals) because it is quickly done it is a big city with a different charm from Tallinn
