  • "Very Good"

    We have been travelling Europe in a motorhome full time for over two and a half years and have used ferries many times. This ferry trip was at least as good as any other we have taken, the ferry employees were most helpful and very customer orientated. The on-board entertainment was unexpected and most enjoyable we had an excellent experience.

  • "Stunning Journey"

    My wife, daughter and I recently traveled on the M/S Galaxy from Turku to Stockholm. What a stunning journey. The first three hours or so as the ship travels through the Aland Archipelago is spectacular, not only scenery wise but navigation-wise, highlighting the skills of the captain and his crew. Likewise, the interesting trip into Mariehamn, closely followed up the channel into port by Galaxy's sister ship Baltic Princess is an interesting sidelight. Then the entry into Stockholm. Stunning. We occupied a four-berth outside cabin which afforded us privacy and relaxation and was an excellent means of travel. We live in Sydney, Australia and always marvel at the beauty and expanse of Sydney Harbour but the experience of Stockholm Harbour is just as spectacular.

  • "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.

  • "Featured crossing "

    I went by ferry from Turku to Stockholm as a deck passage. The ship has made a very clean and seemed very safe. The ride itself runs (about 11 hours), but it will be through the wonderful landscape (both Finnish as also the Swedish side) compensated. view was the climax of my holidays. The food on board was partly very expensive: typical ferry surcharge on prices in Finland (which even compared to Germany are already high), so you should bring something to eat / drink. Worth Considering it's safe to book a cabin for the long ride. I sat most of the time outside or in the (generous) reception area. The ferry makes a stop on Aland. Here most of the passengers got off, so it was very quiet on the drive to Stockholm. I would make the trip again. Notes: There is a large children's area. I would book tickets online in advance and not just buy on the day of booking, as the ferry on weekends and in the summer by many Finns to travel to Aland is used.

  • "Genuine experience! "

    The crossing from Stockholm to Turku is a real experience, as it passes by hundreds of islands and offers photo opportunities churning. The Galaxy is equipped with everything and hardly differs from a cruise ship. The only negative was the breakfast buffet. The ship has docked at 7 clock in the morning and from 6 clock it was breakfast, so had to have breakfast at the same time and there was quite a mess and crowds all passengers.
