Viking Line starts six-hour day cruises from Helsinki

M/S Mariella and M/S Gabriella will have extra daily departures from Helsinki to Tallinn between 16 June and 12 August. While increasing its capacity on the highly popular Tallinn route, Viking Line is also offering Picnic cruises from Helsinki to give customers the chance to enjoy a perfect summer day at sea. A Picnic cruise is a six-hour summer outing that is guaranteed to succeed regardless of the weather because of the abundant selection of foods designed to delight any palate!  

Kiddie Picnic cruises offer entertainment for families with children

The additional summer cruises onboard M/S Mariella and M/S Gabriella are specifically intended for families and passengers travelling with children. The onboard conference facilities are transformed into Ville Viking’s Adventure Islands, and the entire cruise programme is drawn up with our youngest passengers in mind.

During a Kiddie Picnic cruise, children can learn new things in the exciting Baltic Sea Lab, take part in hobby-horse races, see glow-in-the-dark puppets dancing in the thrilling ‘Ghosts onboard’ musical show and practice magical tricks in the Magician School. There is also always time for a daily nap, since a cabin can also be booked for the duration of the Kiddie Picnic cruise. Parents will have plenty of opportunities for affordable shopping and culinary experiences. In summer 2018, the new children’s buffet will be available with a high-quality menu designed by the Swedish Junior Culinary Team.

“A Kiddie Picnic is an excellent way for grandparents to spend a day with their grandchildren during the holiday season while the children’s parents are still working. Ville Viking’s Adventure Island offers games, a playroom and supervised entertainment for the youngest members of the family. Starting a day cruise from central Helsinki is easy as you can park your car conveniently on board the ship during the journey,” explains Jaakko Ahti, Product Manager at Viking Line.

A convenient Pre-order will save you time and trouble

Pre-ordering offers a convenient way to transfer your beverage purchases from the ship. Make a Pre-order online through Viking Line’s website. The onboard staff will deliver your purchases to your vehicle on the car deck. Those travelling without a car will have their Pre-ordered purchases loaded on carts that can be rolled out from the ship.
