Currently, we are the only operator of passenger services with daily departures between Estonia and Sweden. We operate two different routes Tallinn-Stockholm and Paldiski-Kapellskär between Estonia and Sweden.
Following a positive start and development on the Paldiski-Kapellskär route since 1998, we started operating the Tallinn-Stockholm route in January 2001. On the Tallinn-Stockholm route (directed through Mariehamn, Åland, to obtain the tax-free status for onboard shop sales), we currently operate two cruise ferries, Victoria I and Baltic Queen, with one daily departure by each cruise ferry in the afternoon from each port. The duration of the voyage, including a short stop at Mariehamn, Åland, is approximately 16 hours and the ferry arrives at its destination the following morning. The main product is a mini-cruise with two nights onboard the vessel and a day at the destination, although one-way trips combined with a hotel package or a private car trip around the Baltic region are becoming increasingly popular. Ro-ro cargo is transported on the car and cargo decks of both Victoria I and Baltic Queen.
We entered the Estonia-Sweden market in 1998 by commencing regular traffic on the Paldiski-Kapellskär route, where we currently operate one cargo vessel Regal Star.
