We took a trip from Helsinki to Tallinn and retun on a Sunday. The trip over was very pleasant and enjoyable. The retun trip to Helsinki on Sunday evening was a different story. It seemed like half of Estonia was travelling to Helsink, perhaps for work. Before too long people were filling up on alcohol purchased from the tax free shop on board - quite the reason to travel apparently. The ship was pretty well full and smelt like beer, smokes and sweaty men. Would travel agai but probably avoid Sunday and Friday nights.

cruise itself was ok For non premium passengers, finiding comfortable places to st and relax seemed a challenge. And though the brealkfast offered on the 730 Helsinki to Talinin was overwhelmed with people, the food was 3rd rate, like a high school cafeteria-not worth t. grab a coffee and find something in Talinin

We had an A Class cabin on the Baltic Princess as well as Smorgasbord Dinner and Breakfast. The experience was very good. It provided excellent accommodation, meals and transport departing at about 8pm and arriving at about 7am. There are also a variety of shops and restaurants onboard. What we found was that whilst the dinner time was marked as Finnish time, the breakfast was marked as Swedish time, meaning we arose an hour early. Also, after a large smorgasbord dinner there was no need for a large breakfast. Also be aware that cleaners will be starting a clean of your room before the ship docks so be ready. Highly recommend this trip.

We booked a return ferry day trip to Tallinn, Estonia and didn't book a room or businesss lounge access. Upon boarding in the wee hours of the morning there were plenty of vacant seating areas.

For those travelling without booked seats/room/business lounge access like us, the only available seating areas were either at the cafes, Burger King restaurant or the common bar/lounge areas.

On board facilities that are accessible for normal ticket holders include a shop (think duty-free at ariports), cafeteria with salads and sandwhiches, bar/lounge with slot machines, Burger King fastfood and a kids play area and obviously outdoor deck towards the rear or stern of the cruise ship. Room booking holders have access to aforemention and their room and business access holders can access another lounge with buffet in addition to all the above.

On the return trip (late afternoon), the late-boarders onto the ship didn't have any seats and resorted to sitting in hallways or standnig for their journey.

The cruise was comfortable and definitely recommend for crossing the Baltic.

Tallink was my choice of cruise on the two occasions that I’ve visited Tallinn from Helsinki. Tickets were easily available, you can purchase it online or just buy directly from the counter. I have taken both the Megastar and Star cruises and tried the breakfast buffets on them as well. The buffets were well stock with a fair variety. It’s a good way to secure a window seat for yourself and at the same time, be able to dine while looking out the window. Otherwise, the ships also provide sufficient space and seating for all passengers. As a recommendation, if you’re hauling large luggages, you can store them at the luggage room for the price of 2 euros for 2 pieces and that will save you a lot of effort of dragging them up and down the stairs or waiting a long time for the lifts.
