      Stockholm to Helsinki Ferry

      Stockholm 7 hours ago

      We are an active couple in our fifties so we like the shows and some dancing but wouldn't describe ourselves as 'party people'. We would like a niceish cabin without going over the top and a nice dinner setting with good food (obviously!) We have no objection to children but would probably like to dine in a more adult setting.
      I have done so much research on the two ferries that do this overnight trip. I think I'm over doing it. In the end i like the Silja Symphony boat better with its promenade but I like the dinner option better on the Viking cruise! :/
      What I like about the dinner option on Viking is the Food Garden option with a window view. This looks a bit more up market with round tables and table cloths. Also I like the idea of buffet for starters and dessert and ala carte for mains. The fact drinks are not included is fine. We are not big drinkers so are happy to purchase a couple of wines.
      The cabin selections on the Viking are more limited on the upper end. We don't want a suite but like a deluxe type room with sea view. On the Viking the options are the suite which is very expensive and next is the LXB Seaside Premium 12 square metres. Which would be ok.
      On the Silja the Deluxe seaside is 14sq and looks a bit more roomy and better appointed. There are limited photos.
      Don't even get me started on what dining time to choose! ha ha Some say early and be on deck for sunset and that best island views are 3 hours into cruise. I thought exiting the harbour would be good to see too. A 5 o'clock seating for dinner is as soon as you arrive and seems too rushed for us.
      I am presuming you can't request a room mid ship (in case of bad weather as I'm not a great sailor) or any room for that matter. Seems like that is pot luck. Unlike cruise ships where they charge more for same cabins midship and on preferred quiet floors.
      So any help/advice/opinion is very much welcomed.

    • Refilling my Swedish prepaid mobile phone when I am in Poland

      Stockholm Jan 13, 2016 at 7:50 AM

      How can I top up my Telenor prepaid mobile phone when I am in Poland? I cannot buy a Telenor prepaid voucher anywhere here, only In Sweden, where I will return in a few months from now. I also don't have a Swedish bank account, yet. And the Telenor website rejects valid credit cards, for some incomprehensible reason. I need kontantkort Telenor Rörligt 100 kronor. What are my options?
