Hello,

here are some photos of my summerholidays in Helsinki. It was an offer by Finnlines, Travemünde-Helsinki & retour including 3 nights in Seurahuone Hotel in Helsinki for a reasonable price.

The Finnlines ships were: "Finnstar", "Finnmaid". We had very good Scandinavian buffet, although the ships cabins could be a bit cleaner, we had a pleasant time onboard.

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos, if you have questions, please ask. I can recommend Helsinki in summer, and in winter, too  Grin In winter it is even better, because you do not have to fear to feel too hot, but we were lucky, temperature was not above 20°C.

The original report is written in German and has some additional informations, which I am not able to put so nicely together in English, but I will do some basics.

Interesting ships were especially:
"Suokki", ferry to Suomenlinna. Built 1952 !
"Princess Maria" ex. "Finlandia", I still know it and been onboard, when it was "Queen of Scandinavia".
Also very happy to see: "Princess Anastasia", that was ex. "Pride of Bilbao", whow I remember two trips trough Biskaya from Portsmouth to Bilbao and that one was also, ex "Olympia" - so two old Finnish ferries are back home  Grin

And, with thanks to Ms. Pia Broumand and Mr. Tapio Tammento (1st officer) onboard Finnish icebreaker "Urho" we were able to visit the ship, get many informations and take many photos. BUT: This will go to an extra report  Smiley

Please enjoy,

Cornelia

Thank you Niels, it is always nice to get a feedback rather than people reading it and not saying anything about it :-) If this is for anyone here an inspiration to take a similar holiday, the report has done, what it was supposed to do.

Perhaps next time, something with alot of "winterwonderland" - stay tuned  Grin

Very nice photos - good to hear you enjoyed your trip.

I went to Helsinki 20 years ago but it easily remains my favourite capital city

Excellent photos, thanks for sharing. Really enjoyed them. The only thing that could improve them would have been captions. But one can't have everything! Thanks again! Grin
