MS Finlandia sails under the Finnish flag

Our ferry is the only vessel that travels between Tallinn and Helsinki under the Finnish flag, which is why we have made the ferry into a floating Finnish centre—we offer food originating from the untouched nature of Finland, the design of the ferry is influenced by all that is Finnish and entertainment is offered by well-known Finnish performers and entertainers.

Although a cabin isn't necessary for a 2.5-hour trip we suggest you book one if you are travelling with children or want to rest during the crossing—a cabin is a private and comfortable place where you can store your luggage and outwear, rest from the bustle of the ferry or just take a nap. You can choose a cabin with or without a window; all the cabins have a separate WC and shower as well as beds for two to four people.
