With its eight ro-pax vessels, operating between six ports in three countries, Finnlines has upheld its position as an important provider of passenger services in the Baltic Sea.
Finnlines operates daily all the year round between Helsinki and Travemünde. There are two daily departures on the route Naantali–Långnäs–Kapellskär from both directions and as many as three departures between Malmö and Travemünde.
Finnlines combines cargo and passenger traffic in an eco-efficient way and the high utilisation rate on routes and vessels guarantees the possibility to travel in a sustainable and responsible way. Finnlines transports fresh and other crucial goods to the consumers efficiently and reliably while providing safe and convenient services for passengers travelling by sea.
Travel on the upturn
The number of passengers on Finnlines’ vessels increased after two quiet years of corona. The number of passengers on Finnlines’ routes totalled 648,000 in 2022, an increase of 13 per cent compared with the previous year. The growth in individual passenger figures has been very positive and the number of passengers is close to the pre-pandemic years. The strongest growth was on the Finland–Sweden route, up 91 per cent, followed by the Finland–Germany route by 73 per cent. Crossings between Germany and Sweden increased by 10 per cent.
Superstars as from September 2023
Finnlines is finetuning the service concept for the Superstar passenger-cargo vessels, now under construction as scheduled. All details must be completed by the autumn of 2023 when the first Superstar, Finnsirius, makes its debut on the Naantali–Långnäs–Kapellskär line.
An enjoyable sea voyage
In 2023, Finnlines is launching a new cruise experience. The new Superstar-class vessels, Finnsirius and Finncanopus, will represent sustainable and responsible travel with modern facilities and digitalised services. They will showcase new concepts like a relaxing spa and yoga studio, delicious
theme restaurants, and a splendid duty-free shop. The new Superstars may be characterised by nouns such as tranquillity, quality, and digitalisation.
The new concept focuses on enjoyment. Travellers may choose between five restaurants ranging from a bistro to a traditional buffet and an easy-going a la carte. Placing orders in restaurants is possible electronically since all the services have been brought to the new digital era.
The Superstar-class vessels will have a wide range of cabin categories to cater to a large spectrum of customers. Travellers will have many wonderful options from a luxurious Sea View Suite with its own bathtub to a spacious Family Suite accommodating up to six people, to highlight a few.
The panoramic windows featured in the public areas give travellers the opportunity to take in the breathtaking archipelago scenery throughout their voyage. The best viewpoint onboard is from our Stellar Business lounge, where most of our conference guests spend their day. On the covered outdoor deck all passengers may breathe in fresh northern sea air all year round.
The Superstar-class vessels also cater strongly to children and pets. Children can dive into a ball pit inside the kids’ area or adventure in the outdoor deck play area. Pets will be treated like Stars in the ”Woff” bistro area, where the four-legged passengers are welcome to dine.
The new vessels are equipped with the most advanced technology available. The focus onboard has been on digitalisation, contributing to the goal of a paperless vessel. Onboard customers can access services digitally and even enter their cabin without a traditional key card. The new cargo-passenger vessels will set the bar for the ultimate sustainable travel experience.
