We have been on many Caribbean cruises on big ships. This time we were looking for something different. We were so pleased, we will definitely do this again. We chose the pre-cruise package to spend some extra days in Lisbon. Staying at the Ritz Four Seasons was pure luxury.It is up to you how many pre- tours you want to... More

Loved our trip over to Tallinn on the fast Viking FSTR! Unbeknownst to us, we traveled on the first voyage, only to find out later on social media! The ship was neat - a catamaran style ferry that traveled fast and got us over to Tallinn in about an hour and 45 minutes. Shopping, a buffet and slot machines were... More

Sailing to Tallinn last Saturday 22 April 2017 with the new Viking FSTR at 08:00 it is fast and efficient, WIFI is not very great though (esp in the middle of the journey) Back from Tallinn to Helsinki with a bigger ship Viking XPRS and took a cabin with a window: really smooth and great view during the journey.

The Viking runs along the Tallinn-Helsinki route. It costs 20 euros. In Tallinn it leaves from terminal A, nearest to the center. In Helsinki it comes to the front quarter, in contrast to Tallinn. Children on board are entertained by the white cat, while adults with shops and restaurants. Excellent cruise!

Two and a half hours on the water, luckily it was smooth when we went across. Ship to Tallin was very busy with locals doing a booze cruise so the return journey was full of trolleys laden with booze. All was clean and just a 10-15 walk to and from the centre to the boat in both directions. We thought... More

We took the XPRS ship to Tallinn for the day and the experience was not at all as I expected it…it was so much better. I was expecting a ferry since it only takes a couple of hours to travel from Helsinki to Tallinn but they do have plenty of things to entertain you during the trip. They have a... More

Only complaint was the dogs dinner when trying to board, bit of a human stampede. Good crossing, don't rush to buy food, you have two hours and once the initial rush is over it's much quieter. Tallin old town was very enjoyable, bit touristy but that's what we are is it not. Try the spiced sausage, onions and fried potatoes,... More

I caught the Viking Line day cruise to Estonia to do a day tour of Tallin Medieval Town. It was an easy walk back to the terminal from the city, and once again the staff were most helpful in directing you where to go to get to the right gate. The trip from Helsinki to Tallin a pleasant 2 hours... More

Ships are old but updated. Everything is clean. Personel is friendly. Food is good (buffet) and the price is ok.
