The voyages from Sweden to Finland and the Baltic States are quite long, with sailing times of around 17 hours, and are operated overnight. These routes are usually sailed once a day. The shortest connection of Tallink & Silja Line is the route from Helsinki to Tallinn, which is served with six to seven trips per day; with a travel time of only two hours, this route is even suitable for a day trip.
The regular connections can also be booked in combination as a so-called mini-cruise, for example on the route between Stockholm and Helsinki. The departure is in the late afternoon in Stockholm, the next day is mostly available for a shore excursion in Helsinki, before it goes back to Stockholm the following night.
Tallink & Silja Line currently operates a fleet of twelve ships. The ships used on the long-haul routes offer an exceptionally high level of comfort. For example, the “Silja Symphony”, which was modernised a few years ago, has a 142-metre-long glass-roofed promenade. All ships offer gastronomy with several a la carte restaurants as well as pubs and bars. Some of them even offer shows and discos; the interior thus resembles a cruise ship more than a ferry. All Tallink Silja Line ships have cabins that can be booked in different comfort classes, from simple inside cabins to luxurious suites.
