Questions about Tallink ferry to Tallinn


Im looking to book on Baltic Queen from Tallinn - Stockholm. I have a few questions:

1. Ive travelled on both Silja ships to/from Helsinki, is the Baltic Queen similar/better/not as good?

2. If 2 people travelling together, book a shared cabin (and arrive early enough) will they be guaranteed to be in the same shared cabin? How early would we have to arrive to have a good chance at this?

3. Is the evening/breakfast buffet worth it? On Silja I liked breakfast buffet but not evening buffet

Thank you!

Baltic Queen was launched just a few years ago, so furnishings are better than the Silja ships.

The booking system tells if you can get a cabin on your own; chances are good, as long as you stay off conferences and other special events.

If you book together at the same time you will be in the same cabin. Thats what you want isnt it?

As for the buffets they are fairly similar. If youre lucky there will be something extra special. The price is good considering that drink is included, but I have grown tired of it myself and prefer the a la carte restaurants.

Realise this is an old post but in case of people doing research,me had the Buffet dinner and breakfast and both were awesome. Particularly dinner...on ours we had dishes like Brazilian feijoada, smoked salmon, sushi, potato rosti's, baked fish. I would estimate about 20 different cold dishes and about 10 hot meals. Deserts not as great but still good for overnight cruise. If I went again I would definitely do both buffets. Quality was surprisingly good. Restaurant did not feel crowded and there were multiple serving stations so no waiting.
