Go to this website for a journey planner. Assuming that you ship arrives at the West terminal put in "West Terminal" where it says "From" and Market Square at "To". There you will get the different route alternatives.

We arrived in Helsinki on the Silja Cruise ship, Friday May 23. It was a lovely sunny day so we walked from the port to downtown. It was a hike but we enjoyed the sightseeing along the way. Helsinki is very walkable and the trams arew easy & fun to use. You can purchase a ticket that will allow you to use the 3T tram as a hop on/hop off way to explore the City. Enjoy.
