We took the Viking line to Tallinn as the schedule was conducive for our time frame. These are big boats with loads of people boarding and apparently they are known for their good food, family friendly activities and good value. It took us a while to discover that the real fun was in the lounge in the aft of the... More

It was easy to buy tickets online, retrieve the tickets, and then board the ship. I think the most difficult part of this was trying to find a place to sit on the ship without a reserved cabin or sitting in a restaurant or in front of a slot machine.

Did the trip to Tallin, apparently if you buy tickets last minute they can be had cheaper 2 hour ride, all sorts of nonsence on boards, shopping, eating , activities for kids. Locals seemed to get into a mad panic to get lunch as soon as it left dock, Im not sure if its a discount time or what but... More

Decided to go to Estonia from Finland on the Viking line, and I need to say, it was a calm trip, the staff was polite and gave you clear information, what I loved the most was the adorable kids club they had for the kids and part of the entertainment so you won`t get bored. Overall I enjoyed it and... More

Even though we had an ok Viking buffet Christmas dinner it was not close to quality what used to be served 6-8 years back when I traveled in Christmas time too. Breakfast at Viking buffet had very old bread that has dried up and difficult to even bite through but it was ok otherwise. I would highly would recommend to... More

We bought our tickets online and got a great price. The crossing to Tallin was uneventful. Board the ship early if you want a good seat or place to camp out for the journey.

Christmas buffet was really average though it was highly adverised. Ship was clearly overbooked and really crowded, people were sitting on the floor. Maybe cause there is not enough benches or sofas. I think i'll choose another carrier next Time. This ship is not comfy at all. You'd think it's older than it really is. Dark and messy. Crew is... More

We did a day trip over to Helsinki from Tallinn using Viking line and we were very impressed with the crossing and service. The ticket prices were very good value and there were a lot of amenities for all guests. The crossing was very smooth and not choppy at all which I was expecting at this time of year. The... More
