"Perfect, for the West Harbour"
I chose Eckero Line because I knew the ship would arrive in the West Harbour of Helsinki, which was perfect for my onward trip on the St Peter Line to St Petersburg, as that was where my departure point in Helsinki was from. The ferry was similar to other ferries i'd used before by other operators between the cities. The price was also very competitive. The only negative was them demanding I had to be there 75 minutes before departure, which was clearly not the case. I'd say 30 minutes is a more reasonable time to state and one based on truth. I could have spent an 30-40 minutes doing better things in Tallinn or my hotel rather than waiting around and watching the ferry arrive in port, then unloading vehicles.

In Sept we sailed from Tallin to Helsinki - excellent very clean ship with all the facilities one could wish for. Our lunch was delicious and reasonably priced. On time both leaving and arriving with very good port facilities. We would certainly use this line again.
