The Estonian ferry line's Silja Serenade, usually serving the Helsinki-Stockholm link, will be plying between the two capitals from 26 June till 15 August, with departures every other day.
In addition to ferry tickets, Tallink will be offering customers travel packages to Riga, i.a., accommodation at the company's Tallink Hotel Riga and tickets to local attractions.
"As this summer and high season are very different from any previous years and we have had to completely rethink and redesign our services in a very short timescale, we have listened to what our customers have said to us about their travel and destination preferences this summer and I am pleased that we are able to offer people in the region some great new travel opportunities close to home," Paavo Nõgene, CEO, Tallink Grupp, said.
He added, "[…] Silja Serenade and her crew are looking forward to welcoming passengers on board and we are ready to ensure that, despite the recent challenging times, this summer does not have to pass without everyone having the opportunity to make some amazing travel memories in the comfort of our own Baltic Sea region."
"The Baltic States […] have been able to stop the spread of the unexpected visitor COVID-19 […] in our countries and therefore we are able to provide a safe destination for travellers," Nõgene underlined.
