Tallink invests €16m in refurbishing Silja Europa ({{commentsTotal}})


Listed Estonian shipping company Tallink Grupp is investing more than 16 million euros to refurbish its passenger ferry Silja Europa, which will be returning to its Tallinn-Helsinki route on Dec. 12.

One of the most extensive and expensive works has involved a complete facelift of a total of 1,016 cabins across all classes, ranging from standard cabins to suites. Aprocos was responsible for the ship's new interior design.

Alongside its cabins, corridors, lobbies and public restrooms, most of the Silja Europa's restaurants and bars will receive a total makeover as well. The ship will also get a new café, Coffee&Co, which had previously only been found on ferries serving the Helsinki-Stockholm route.

In spring 2016, the Silja Europa's shops, nightclub and showbar were renovated and a new restaurant, Tavolata, and fast food restaurant, Fast Lane, were launched.

The ship will be returning to the Tallinn-Helsinki route on Dec. 12, departing from Tallinn at 12:30 p.m. and from Helsinki at 6:30 p.m. daily.

Built in Germany in 1993, the Finnish-Swedish ice class 1A Super Silja Europa is 202 meters (663 feet) long, 33 meters (108 feet) wide and has a maximum passenger capacity exceeding 3,000. The vessel's maximum speed is 21.5 knots and its auto deck can accommodate 932 lane meters of vehicles.
