Traveled with the ferry Gabriella and there was an excellent children section to allow the kids to blow off some steam while I was enjoying the excellent buffet.

Viking xprs the ship from hell
Rock this cruise to Tallinn and know wonder they give you free tickets for this as if you had to pay you would never go again...
Ok you ever see those old moves with people cramped in a ship living in squalor.as they set sail for new horizons...while this was worst than that...people had to sit their kids on the floor to feed them.as no enough tables and chairs to go around .not even enough child high chairs...
They just jam packed this ships with people and didn't care about accommodation for them all.

Ok not going to go on and on BUT THIS SHIPS FOR DRUNKS AND THAT'S ALL THE COMPANY CARES ABOUT...THERE STAFF ARE UNFRIENDLY TO KIDS MORE FRIENDLY TO DRUNKS THAT SPEND MONEY .......
But the toilets stink the carpets are old and smelly..

ITS NOT FOR KIDS DON'T TAKE THEM ON IF YOU WANT TO GO ANYWHERE FLY..................

Travelled from Helsinki to Stockholm by the 'Gabriella' and had a memorable time.
There seems to be something for everyone aboard.
Just sit and watch the marvelous scenes and the archipelago pass by, indulge in " duty free" shopping, eat drink from the plenty of options available aboard, splurge in the casino or get entertained with he various programmes on hand.
The cabins are very compact though well organized.
Staff are friendly and polite.
Only complaint would be the very slowly moving line to board or get off.

We took a Viking Grace cruise in July and as a family with children aged 9 and 11 really enjoyed the trip. Solely the astonishing Swedish and Finnish archipelago with extremely beautiful summer villas make the cruise enjoyable. But the cruise boat adds more to your holiday - it is furnished nicely, as a new boat is very clean and the service is smooth and friendly.

We ate in Oscar a la carte restaurang. The food and drinks were delicious and the view from our table next to the window was spectacular. On our way back from Stockholm we took the buffet option and that is probably nothing to be recommended. Just ok, but the limited 1,5 hour time for a buffet lunch was a bit short and the crowd rushed with their lunch in a unpleasant way. Felt unfortunately a bit like in a school diner.

Our cruisevwas blessed with a sunny summer day and we had drinks with our friends in the deck. There were nice couches, DJ playing and drinks were yummy. A nice memory to look back when it gets cold and dark after couple of months.

We take a cruise with Grace. Grace is new, clean and spacy ship. Of course, there was not much to do for teens, but stil,l it was a nice trip. Food was excellent, we ate peppersteaks, hamburgers and of course pizzas, and they were really good. (Best peppersteak for a long time for me). Place was Franks.
