Hi, Id like to travel from Stockholm to Helsinki in mid July and returning at the end of july (so id want a route rather than cruise). After researching on forums most people seem have had bargain deals (like 32euro each way!) and several websites claim the ferry is cheaper than flying. The cheapest I can find is Viking Line for 154euro return (where im sharing a cabin with strangers in C-class), wheras a flight with norweigian air is £55 return. I really like the idea of the ferry (especially the morning views and the buffets!) but the price of the flight is just too tempting.
Is there a certain length of time which I have to book in advance (eg 90 days before departure) to get the best deals? or is it a case of book as early as possible? The price quote is direct from the viking line website, is it better for me to phone a sales agent in my own country (UK)?
Any help would be great! :)
