    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

    Excellent transfer, apart from the indications.

    The trip was excellent and a worthy visit to Helsinki, as well as the comfort of the ship. However we had not been informed that we had to register further and it was not enough to have the vouchers, and luckily we showed up properly in advance otherwise they would not have embarked us. Show up at least 45 minutes before for check-in. Furthermore, the landing is not close to the center but to Terminal 2, located more than 3 km from the center. The Viking company instead lands near the market square.

    Hat alles reibungslos funktioniert, die Überfahrt wird sehr professionell durchgeführt. Hatte die Comfort-Lounge (zusätzlich €48, Stand Juli 2020) gebucht, das würde ich vermutlich nicht wieder tun. Es gab ein Buffet mit Brot, Käse, Schinken, Snacks sowie kalten und warmen nicht-alkoholische Getränke. Die Comfort Lounge isr mit großzügigen Sitzgelegenheiten ausgestattet.
