Ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki or to Tallinn: how to choose?

Jump to last reply

We’ll be taking a ferry from Stockholm to either Helsinki or Tallinn, then returning home (to US) by air from the other city. Here’s our question: Should we go first to Helsinki or to Tallinn?

Helsinki first
Pros: Easier to book from the US since it’s an 800 phone number and can book in English.
Con: This would take us into Helsinki in mid-week, and hotels are more expensive weekday than weekend. Am I right in thinking this, or under a misconception?

Tallinn first
Pros: Tallinn in midweek would eliminate the hectic weekend party scene, which we’ve been told happens. City would be more peaceful.
Cons: Harder to book from US on-line (language barrier), but possible to call if language is not a problem?

Do both offer senior discounts? And, what is considered senior? 60? 65?

We’re inching closer to purchasing our tickets for the trip and having been waiting for flight prices to drop (which they have not), and need to think about which city to return from, for the open jaw.

Our city order is Copenhagen (4 nights), Stockholm (2 nights), ferry (1 night), then either Helsinki (3 nights), and Tallinn (3 nights), or reverse the last two cities.

Any thoughts, opinions, or anything else we need to consider? Do I have my facts straight about hotels prices and the booking language issues for the ferries?
Thanks. Kathy
