Renewed Star Vessels: Easy-Going and Smooth

To celebrate Finnlines’ 70th anniversary and to serve our customers better, we have renewed our Hansalink Star Class vessels with a mixture of ageless maritime, serene scandinavian modern style and an industrial cargo look.

As we all know customer feedback gives us valuable insight. We based our decision to proceed with our Star Class vessel facelifts on an analysis of our passengers’ feedback and satisfaction surveys. From the results it was clear that the expectations of our customers have grown. The public areas on deck 11 and Reception on deck 7 received significant makeovers in order to offer value-added service to all our passengers.

To emphasise the relationship to our owner, Naples based Grimaldi Group, Italian gastronomy and hospitality has been implemented into the new concept. Some important public areas have received Italian names such as the “Strada” and the outer deck “Terrazzo”.

Mare Balticum & Hansa Cabinet

The sea journey allows time to enjoy food, drink and good company! The bright colours combined with an industrial cargo look create an inviting and enjoyable atmosphere for family gatherings as well as peaceful dinners.

 A part of the buffet restaurant, the Hansa Cabinet, can be separated into a meeting and conference area.

Pop Up bar: Bar Corallo

Bar Corallo now serves as a real drink bar at the heart of the Mare Balticum buffet restaurant and offers wines and aperitifs or digestives.

Bar & Bistro Navigare

On the other hand, the Bistro offers a different world, an industrial look and feel of cool cargo. Live music can be enjoyed during high season in selected departures. Swinging on the sea – what a jazzy idea!

Star Café

In the Star Café, the trends of the world can be enjoyed to the fullest! Menus have been redesigned to offer variety while the all time favourite Scandinavian treats like the salmon toast can still be found on the menu, too.

The Star Café serves also those enjoying the fresh sea breezes of the Terrazzo.

Vista Lounge  & Panorama corridor

The Vista Lounge is a space dedicated to easy lounging – for effortlessly watching the waves, the seagulls, the scenery – or just enjoying the voyage with a travel mate or a book.

Kids’ playroom & Teens’ Lounge

Happy kids mean a better journey – for all! Bearing this in mind, the kids’ playroom and the Teens’ lounge have had a makeover.

The area has a new colourful interior and a ball pit for the kids while there’s graffiti full of young spirit for the teens.

The teens are welcome to chill out, chat with friends, play games, take selfies and purely enjoy the journey in a place of their own.


In order to be able to enjoy the relaxing sea breeze in almost every weather,  wind separators were installed and a sheltered area created. New chairs and tables add on comfort.

Massage & Sauna area

The massage point is now practically located next to the sauna. Sauna and Massage offer pure relaxation in restful atmosphere, all day long!

Gymstick Gym

Training with a view! The large windows facing the Baltic Sea give an extra edge to the training. More privacy was created by separating the Gymstic Gym into two areas with treadmills, a state of the art rowing machine and weights.

Sailor’s Shop

Tax free with an enhanced variety of products in our shop selection lure into searching for great bargains! The shopping area has been extended in order to provide an enjoyable shopping spree!
