All seven vessels of Finnish shipper Viking Line will return to passenger service by Thursday, July 2, while the number of departures between Tallinn and Helsinki will be higher than in previous high seasons.
Viking Line has announced that its MS Mariella and MS Cinderella will return to service on July 2. MS Mariella will sail the Helsinki-Tallinn route from July 2 until August 9, supplementing the normal service of MS Viking XPRS between Helsinki and Tallinn with four additional daily departures. This means that this summer, Viking Line will have more departures on the Helsinki-Tallinn route than ever before, the company said in a press release.
MS Cinderella will return to sail the Stockholm-Mariehamn route as well as special cruises from Stockholm to Visby (Gotland, Sweden - ed.).
As of July 2, MS Amorella and MS Viking Grace will sail the Turku-Aland-Stockholm route, MS Gabriella the Helsinki-Aland route, and MS Rosella the Mariehamn-Kapellskar route. MS Cinderella will sail the Stockholm-Mariehamn route as well as special cruises between Stockholm and Visby during August and September.
Kaj Takolander, vice president of sales and marketing for Viking Line, said: "It is such a joy to see people returning to our ships. Our passengers have expressed their satisfaction with our range of timetable options. Holidays in the surrounding countries remain very popular and we believe that this will be a busy summer."
All Viking Line ships are continuing to ensure passenger safety in accordance with systematic and strict standards. The number of passengers on all cruises is currently more limited and thorough measures are being carried out as a means of safeguarding hygiene aboard all vessels, the company said.
