I know this is a popular question and I did look at the top questions about Helsinki but still need some advice, please.
My friend and I are traveling on a Sunday at the beginning of June.
We were going to take Viking being that it was close to the city center but they don't offer a lot of sailing on Sunday's (we would like a morning ferry being that we only have one day & night in Tallinn). The two other ferries with more frequent sailings are Eckerö Line and Tallink. I know they are far from the city centre but are they easily reachable via taxi? We're not considering the Linda Line because we don't want to risk our ferry being cancelled.
Any recommendations on either Eckerö or Tallink?
I was also wondering if anything has changed since JohntheFinn's very helpful post on each ferry?
Also, can we wait until that Saturday when we arrive in Helsinki to purchase our tickets or should we purchase ahead of time? I read on TA that the weekends are more crowded so I wasn't sure if waiting was recommended.
