Easy unplanned trip to Tallinn, a bargain offer of 2€/person return ticket. Starting from Helsinki at 10.30 and returning after 19, just enough time to go for lunch in Tallinn and walk around a bit.

Easy, stress free experience. The ride was rocky causing nausea but that's to be expected and standing on the deck helped a lot

Yes, it is simple and easy. Go to viking line web site and select the best combination. Automatic Check-in booths are in the teminal, downstairs - takes 2 minutes to check in. Tallinn is beautiful!
