Silja Serenade

Operated by Tallink Silja on the Helsinki Mariehamn, Helsinki Stockholm & Mariehamn Stockholm routes

The luxurious Silja Serenade can carry up to 2,850 passengers and once onboard you’ll feel like you’re on a city break in the middle of Europe. In early 2014 Silja Serenade went over an 6 week makeover to enhance its luxurious travel experience. At the centre of the ship is the Promenade where you’ll find a wide variety of shops, fascinating cafés and high class restaurants. In terms of facilities the Silja Serenade is one of the finest ships in its class and meets the high standards found on all Silja ships.

Onboard Cabins / Reserved Seating

There’s a huge choice of cabins onboard the Silja Serenade ranging from standard inside cabins with bunk beds to luxury suites. All cabins are en-suite, air conditioned and contain a wardrobe, hair dryer, radio and telephone. During the re-fit a couple of the major changes were made to commodore suite, lounge area and three brand new elegant junior suites added to its already outstanding range of accommodation.

Onboard Food and Drink

Silja Serenade’s restaurants serve delicious dishes to suit all tastes. From skilful creations that’ll delight all senses at the fine dining Bon Vivant restaurant to the famous seafood platter at the Happy Lobster fish restaurant or the ’Captain’s Sword’ skewer in El Capitán. You’ll also find a beautiful Italian restaurant, Tavolàta Ristorante Italiano where the menu is stylish but also relaxed offering many portions to share. For a bit of everything head to the Grande Buffet to fill your plate with roe, shrimps, traditional island dishes or tapas. For a snack try Mundo restaurant on the promenade.

There’s no shortage of places to drink onboard the Serenade either! Promenade Bar is ideal for a relaxing drink with friends while Keulabaari on deck 8 is an ideal spot for sipping a glass of bubbly while enjoying the fabulous views. For a taste of England in the Baltic try the Old Port Pub which is an authentic English pub specialising in beer, cider and whisky.

The New York Club & Lounge is a variation of a stylish lounge atmosphere and a party venue. Enjoy your favourite cocktails and listen to live piano music from the moment the ship departs. Later in the evening the place is taken over by karaoke fans and around midnight the restaurant transforms into a club filled with a lively party crowd. The resident DJ plays the hottest club music and the latest hits.

Onboard Shopping

The Promenade on Silja Serenade is a lively shopping street in the middle of the Baltic Sea! Visit the trendy designer shops and purchase world-famous brands at low tax-free prices. Specialist shops include Silja Tax Free for spirits, wines, beer, cigarettes, sweets and food; Silja Perfumes offers the best-known quality brands in perfumes, cosmetics and skin-care; the Fashion shop on the Promenade specialises in accessories for men and women; the Deco shop offers a range of beautiful home necessities and gifts while in the Bon Vivant wine shop you can select from the most fabulous vintage wines. If jewellery, handbags or watches is what you are after then head to the luxury boutique on deck 7.

Additional Onboard Facilities

Roulette, Black Jack, poker games, one-armed bandits, dice games and more are on offer at the Silja Serenade's Casino. It really is a games oasis sparkling with the excitement of playing and the triumph of winning.

In the Bellamare Sauna & Wellbeing centre (deck 5) adults have the choice of numerous treatments. While in the Sunflower Oasis spa you’ll find a hair salon, sun beds and in the summer an bar will be open next to the spar area.

Travelling with children

In Silja Land, the children’s playroom on the Promenade, you’ll find all kinds of fun activities from a ball pool to games, drawing material and toys. The playroom is supervised by professional assistants. The Sunflower Oasis spa with its whirlpools and water slides is a true paradise for water-loving youngsters so remember to pack the swimming stuff!

  • "A wonderful introduction to cruising"

    We thoroughly enjoyed our trip from Stockholm to Helsinki from the moment we realised how simple it was to board, and our personal greeting and directions to our cabin - not half as daunting as we suspected. Our cabin was spacious and comfortable, the choice of restaurants would suit all budgets, service was friendly and helpful, and our breakfast was indeed "special" and memorable. Everything ran to schedule with no delays. We had a truly nice time, and best of all - did not suffer from mal de mer, thanks to the smooth sailing of the ship.

  • "FERRY PORT LISTING"

    After arriving in Helsinki, I realized the directions for the terminals for the both the ferry to Estonia and Stockholm were not provided. I found the Estonia ferry which was listed as Tallink Silja but Stockholm was at another terminal call Silja in another location. So in the future can you include the ferry location for both.

  • "Excellent time on Silja"

    We took our children to Silja Line for one night, Stockholm to Helsinki. This was their first time on a ferry and they absolutely loved it! Facilities are excellent and there are so many activities/facilities for kids that as a family, it's a fabulous experience. Food was delicious (we had a buffet and even had a sea view!), it's clean and everything works as it should. Cabin was slightly on a small side but we expected that. Not a problem as we weren't there to spend time in the cabin! That said, it had all the basic facilities we could need and shower was brilliant. Definitely recommend to everyone.

  • "A Hotel Afloat"

    The check-in at Helsinki was painless. The cabin was incorrect but was changed without too much trouble. The journey overnight was peaceful. The evening meal was excellent as was the breakfast prior to arriving in Stockholm. The terminal in Helsinki was centrally located, although the terminal in Stockholm was well out of town. It was an excellent way to travel between the two cities.
