  • "Dont forget something in your car..."

    Our trip from Turku to Stockholm was pleasant, without any negative experiences. But little trouble for us is unable go to car-deck for pickup something during trip. I know, this is for security reason, but it is quite uncomfortable.

    It was more like a cruise boat than a car ferry. The services, food options were good and the views throughout the whole trip were fabulous. Highly recommend it.

  • "Off to Stockholm from Turku"

    Wonderful summer evening cruise in good weather. Cabin more spacious than expected on 9th deck, and bed linen was very good. Lots of different styles of entertainment, and enough places to sit and watch the islands go by as the sun set. We picnicked on deck, so haven't been able to rate the catering. It would hav e been helpful to have had information about the terminal at the start of our trip from Turku i.e. what time passengers should arrive before boarding, facilities at the terminal, whether a local bus went there....but impressively smooth voyage.

  • "travel on Baltic Princess"

    Clean cabin, plenty of restaurants on board, helpful personnel, good tax free shop with a good selection of alcohol and sweets. The pub had a good musical entertainment, the selection of beers from tap could have been better. From Finnish beers Karhu would have been nice, another Swedish or Estonian beer would be good. If it is meant to be an Irish pub, some Irish beer would have been great (just noticed the musician was Irish). Unfortunately it was noisy in the cabin until late at night, due to the noise levels in the game hall underneath. I did not try any of the catering on board due to my low budget.

  • "MS Galaxy - Turku to Stockholm on Friday 15 August 2014."

    My family of three shared a cabin (with view)for the above journey. You have certainly been blessed by nature as the trip out of Turku through the archapelago and similarly into Stockholm must rank as one of the most spectacular sea journeys in the world. Absolutely beautiful. The ship was very comfortable and the onboard staff excellent and helpful. Thanks to the captain and his crew for a safe and most interesting journey. I am in awe of the crew's seamanship in manoeuvring the ship in the channel at Mariehamn.

  • "Boat trip"

    Travelled with this operator since we were going to a dog show in Helsinki. The dog toilet wasn't good though, none of the dogs wanted to use it, they went outside but we cleaned up after them. The cabin was situated on one of the top decks, on top of the disco which made it hard to get some sleep and were supposed to drive the morning after. Apart from that the ship was nice and we ate at the buffé which had great food.

  • "Great travel experience"

    I travelled with "Baltic Princess" between Stockholm and Turku the 4th of August 2014. It was a nice trip in every way. Great weather and fantastic nature, especially the Finnish archipelago on the way from Turku and the Swedish one when arriving to Stockholm. All this with nice environment onboard a ferry with high standards. We also had good food served by a friendly staff providing great service. I will without a doubt recommend this to other people and I would really like to take this trip again sometime. Kind regards Per Tronstad.

  • "A beautiful sea journey for a good price"

    We were travelling from Turku to Stockholm on the Baltic Princess. The ferry is quite big, it has all the necessities you might need on the ship - bars with evening program and disco, tax free shop (which is actually much cheaper than the airport one),etc. We had the cheapest cabin but it was still nice and tidy, with TV and clean bathroom. All the announcements are in languages including English. The staff was also friendly and helpful.

    Everything was organised for an excellent crossing: cabin, seafood platters at the restaurant. However, because of some people with a Saturday night fever partying, it was impossible to sleep. I will do it again, but not on a Saturday night.

  • "gladly again "

    The ship is clean on the go. The food is excellent, but in my opinion a bit too expensive. € 11 for a breakfast, but you can take as much as you want. Both times, so in return ride was the ship on time. If you are flexible with the data, you can also book very cheap ferries for themselves. Recommend the ferry.

  • "Just a ferry"

    Both trips were efficient and reasonably comfortable. The buffet was manic but plenty of food and good value for money. The grill was a better experience if a little more expensive. The cabins were small but adequate including a surprisingly good shower. It was unfortunate that access to the limited open decks meant braving the plethora of smokers. On the return journey much of the open deck was closed - not sure why.
