Viking Line - Meal option

Hi guys,

Me and a friend are trying to book the Viking line transit between the Helsinki - Tallinn for next September.

I need to ask whether is it worth it to book the meal option online as well since the transit time is only 2hours. The website is saying that it will cost more onboard. (Buffett bistro option is Euros 24 per person online). Or else buy something onboard that day.

Also does the Viking Line still leaves to Tallinn leave Helsinki from the south harbour?

Thanks for your help

Viking Line sails from Katajanokka, which is an easy walk from downtown Helsinki. In addition to the buffet, the Viking ferry also has a cafeteria where you can get a bite. I wouldn't bother booking in advance, it only saves a couple of euros and it's more interesting to eat in Tallinn.

I don't know if this still happens but when I went to book a Viking line crossing a few years ago in English, I got diverted to a travel agent in Manchester who were charging shed loads more than Viking line. So I telephoned Viking line got the cheaper price and paid on departure.
