Try your luck at the casino, take a seat at the bar and marvel at all the entertainment on board. Sleep it off in a comfortable cabin and de-stress during a beauty treatment. And all this with a beautiful sea view on the Baltic Sea.

  1. There is only on thing I could complain about with this Viking Line Ferries, we experienced lengthy delays and frequent technical issues. This did leave us quite dissatisfied with the service, however we would come back and give them the benefit of the doubt as it was the sight of summer.
