The special cruises will be operated with Tallink Grupp’s vessel Silja Europa, except for the Riga-Visby cruise, which will be operated with the group’s Riga-Stockholm route vessel Isabelle.

Tickets for the 2020 special cruises will go on sale in the coming months. Information about the tickets going on sale will be published on the company’s websites and in the company’s social media channels.

Special cruises offer passengers a unique opportunity to visit destinations which don’t have regular route traffic from their location. Tallink Grupp has been providing special cruises annually since 2011.
