We chose the 6.5h option in Helsinki, with a departure at 10:30 am - return 7:30 pm. With the constructions, not very easy to find in Tallinn Terminal D. You have to arrive in advance and exchange the voucher for the tickets. The reservation number is the most important. The boat is huge, there weren't a lot of tourists. Sea of oil, sun, but take a small sweater because it is windy. Possibility to eat and drink on the boat. When arriving in Helsinki, several possibilities: take tram 7 or 9 to go to the center (but it's a big city, not a lot of interesting things to see). We opted to go to Suomenlinna, the maritime fortress. The ferry there leaves from the city center, we took a taxi to go there as it is far. We spent 3 hours at this peaceful place. The taxi cost € 16, the ferry € 1.50 (the price of a ticket). Tallinn is not expensive, but in Helsinki the prices are high. Masks are regularly worn in transport.

Very easy to redeem the ticket, very easy to find the gate. And the ship is incredibly huge! And so comfortable! Just one remark: the ship departed 15 minutes BEFORE the expected time. So be aware to be at least 30 minutes in advance otherwise you will miss he ferry!!

I bought round-trip tickets for a family of 4 at a nice price. Everything went smoothly. I got the necessary information and tickets through the iOS app. I recommend.

Great time. It might just be necessary to specify that the voucher must be exchanged for tickets directly at the counter in terminal D.

Fantastic day out. Helsinki is fabulous. The ferry has good restaurants and shops
