Checked in really easily at the port with the self service. Straight onto boat. Definitely recommend. Got return tickets so on the way back just needed to scan that through the barriers and again on to the boat no issues. Tram line at the port in Helsinki easy to use. Would recommend getting a day pass to explore and get back to the port for return.

The ferry was super easy to find and very comfortable. I couldn’t work checking in on the app but we arrived and used the self check in kiosk which printed out tickets in second - just have to hand the email from the actual ferry company not get you’re guide. You can charge you phone while you wait and then straight onto the ferry. Super easy and well worth a trip!

We got the 7:30am ferry over to Helsinki. It was an early start but definitely worth it to make the most of the day in Finland. Online check in was really easy (I just downloaded the ferry app). Finding terminal D was easy enough too and check in on the self kiosk was so simple. I wasn’t sure how smoothly it was going to run but it was perfect. Ferry itself had loads to do on board and it was a smooth journey. On the other side there was a tram line right at the terminal. We got the 19:30 ferry back which honestly in the winter was the best time. I think 22:30 would have been very cold and late. The ferry left from the same place it dropped you off, so was easy to find your way back. We already had our tickets from the first check in. Really recommend this to see more of the world, Helsinki had a lot to offer and the ferry couldn’t have been easier to get on and off.
