Finnlines Plc, Press release, Helsinki, 29 November 2023

Christmas on M/S Finnsirius, which is the latest arrival in the Finnlines fleet, is made of Christmas menus at the buffet restaurant and at the à la carte restaurant and live music. Christmas spirit and entertainment can be enjoyed until Epiphany. Finnsirius debuted on the Finnlines route between mainland Finland, Åland and Sweden in September.

What is Christmas without delicious flavours? On Finnsirius, the dining concept is based on local, seasonal ingredients, produced in a sustainable manner. At the buffet restaurant, Cargo, Christmas delicacies are served at lunch time and the à la carte restaurant, Micke’s, has a special Christmas menu. Ship’s other restaurants and bars also serve Christmassy specialties, like a variety of mulled wines and pastries. Season’s delicacies are served between 1 December 2023 and 6 January 2024.

”Finnsirius has got off to a flying start and we are delighted to produce a first-class experience at Christmas-themed tables in the Baltic Sea,” says Marco Palmu, Head of Passenger Services at Finnlines.

Christmas spirit and entertainment

During the holiday season, Finnsirius will be filled with musical splendour when live performers enter the stage. First in line is the duo Kruuvaus on 26–28 December. On 28–30 December troubadour Tuomas Lehto entertains passengers. Around New Year, on 30 December – 1 January, another duo, Emma Balbatsu and Tuomas Lehto, turn the cruise into an unforgettable experience.

At Christmas time, there will be some special cruises. Would you be interested in spending a day in Sweden or attending a guided caste tour? More information on the travel operators’, Matkapojat and Launokorpi, web pages or at 

Finnsirius departs from Naantali in the morning, calls the Port of Långnäs in Åland during the day and arrives to Kapellskär in the evening. Passengers have an opportunity to choose among a variety of restaurants, in total seven restaurants and bars. The ship offers indoor and outdoor activities for  young and older children. Sailor’s Shop has tax free prices, allowing passengers can pick up bargains. The sea voyage is serene and inspiring in Stellar Lounge, which has panoramic windows. It is also a quiet place to work. Passengers can also enjoy the sea view in the covered terrace or in the luxurious spa, in its outdoor jacuzzi, yoga studio and gym. 

Early in 2024 the sister vessel, Finncanopus, will replace the current smaller Star-class vessel on the route and she will depart from Naantali in the evening.

Christmas is also visible on Finnlines’ passenger routes between Finland and Germany and Sweden and Germany. Christmas treats are available in the buffet restaurant, bar and shop. The traditional Christmas cruise between Finland and Germany will be arranged in co-operation with Kristina Cruises.
