About St Petersburg
In short, it's a city with a beating heart, a vibrant history and an integral future in modern Russia. Very different in character from Moscow, the city is known for being modern, progressive and cool, featuring great shopping and nightlife to complement the wide range of historic sites. Today, it makes a great entry port into exploring Russia further, with St Peter Line offering sailings to St Peter Line from Helsinki in Finland.
Owing to Peter the Great's passion for boats and sailing, the city is perfectly served for ferry services, and recent visa regulation relaxations have made it even more attractive for tourists. One site definitely worth seeing is the Winter Palace - legend has it that Russian citizens walking past the front of the Winter Palace during the reign of the Peter the Great were in constant danger of being pulled from the street in order to be subjects for the enthusiastic though somewhat over confident Tsar's amateur dentistry experiments. Visitors to the capital will be relieved to discover that this is no longer a danger they face.

Checking in at Helsinki was a breeze and the crossing smooth. Although the website said we would not arrive at the normal terminal because of the G20, this was not the case.

My wife and I took the overnight ferry to St. Petersburg and it was great!! The food was great, the room was adequate and the scenery was spectacular. We would do it again in a minute. In fact, we are planning our next trip already and we have only been home for 3 days. I would recommend the ferry trip to anyone.

Make sure you have Euros or food voucher. BEFORE getting onboard if coming from Russia. Otherwise you CANNOT EAT OR DRINK FOR 15 HOURS!!! The room is tiny and spartan, which is not a huge issue but the bedding was not soft or comfortable - considering the price better bedding would be expected. In the all you can eat buffet the food is fine, but the staff continually try to clear your stuff away and are visibly annoyed if you get up to get another included glass of wine or a bit more food and don't leave... This is unacceptable as you pay for all you can eat and drink and there are fixed times for sessions lasting an hour and a half. Why should I be made to feel uncomfortable and that I should be leaving from about 20 minutes into my hour and a half seating? There is immense pressure to get you out as quick as possible, despite the excessively high price tag for average food. There is a distinct lack of efficiency in disembarkation. They like everyone up on the side where the lifts are...????!!!!??? So every 5 seconds the lifts open and people try and cram into the queue and queue jump... This is just idiotic. Queuing on the other side of the room would eliminate this. We weren't even on the right side for exit so this was just a failure to think things through. The whole thing masquerades as a cruise with facilities, but the staff make you feel like cattle. There is a cinema... No films... ! It served its purpose and st petersburg is amazing. But this ferry is horribly overpriced and the staff need a severe talking to about their attitude Oh and go on Princess Maria if you can... It's newer nicer and cleaner. Anastasia is old and grubby It's a good way to get to Russia without a visa but nothing more
