Klaipeda is the third largest city in Lithuania and being the only port city, it has been invaded by various cultures like the Curonians, Germans and the Livonians in the past. This has lead to Klaipeda being influenced by all these cultures and developing into an intriguingly ethnic and multicultural city.
Klaipeda is a relatively small city and most of its population constitute of the working class people. There are very few sightseeing places in Klaipeda but what little there is will definitely be a rewarding experience. Some of the places of interest would be the St. Mary's and St. John's churches, the drama theatre built in 1857 and Mazvydas Sculpture Park with over 180 quirky art works to mention a few.
You can find great bargains and souvenirs in the old parts of the town and in the markets on theatre square.
Kiel Ferry Port is located at the head of Kiel Fjord on the bay of Kiel in the southeast corner of Baltic Sea and is one of the most varied ports on the Baltic Sea. Its favourable geographic position, deep-water harbour facilities and its direct connection to the inland waterway, rail and road network makes the Kiel port equally attractive for cargo handling and passengers.
With more than 50 scheduled ferry sailings per week, Kiel Ferry Port has a dense network of scheduled traffic to virtually every port destination in the Baltic region. Thanks to the forward-looking port policy and constant investment, Kiel ferry port has become a hub of international importance. You can book all Kiel ferries via AFerry.

10 Jul 2018A freight vessel taking passengers as an afterthought
This is a useful route to avoid the long drive through Poland and Eastern Germany but it is essentially a freight line. For example be prepared to shunt and back you vehicle into incredibly tight spaces and little space to get out of the vehicle, impossible if you are overweight! Be prepared to hump your overnight kit up, if you are on the lowest deck, 6 flights of steep stairs as there are no lifts on board. (Disabled and older passengers take note.) Staff can be unhelpful and on one occasion to the point of rudeness - maybe a language problem? (German, Lithuanian and Russian main languages on board.) Food on board is basic. The vessel is a cargo ship and not a passenger ferry and as such tends to have move movement. On the positive side our cabin was comfortable and we were able to watch World Cup football live on the lounge T.V. If you are traveling to or from Hamburg via Kiel be aware that as of early July about 35 km of the 100km motorway is presently being dug up!

The journey was ok, only travelling instructions to the terminal in Klaipeda were very poor and we went to the wrong terminal. There the person in check desk could not give instructions how to find the right terminal in English, only in German. But finally we found the right terminal in last minute.

09 Oct 2012Trip was excellent except for lack of communications.
Our complaint is related to the total lack of communications in English. All announcements we made in Lithuanian and a few also in German. When I tried to determine how we would embark the reception person could not explain any of the process in English and seemed annoyed that I should ask. She didn't attempt to refer me to a person who was able to give any instructions. Fortunately the bar tender was very helpful and explained the process. If there was an emergency on board I don't know how we would have know the expected process. There was an instruction sign on the cabin door with some information. The cabins were comfortable and all the facilties all worked. It seemed that the boat was recently renovated as all the fixtures looked new. We were the only customers in the sit-down restaurant during the dinner hours. The food and service was excellent and the price reasonable. It was only slightly more expensive than the self service area and the food was much better. The buffet breakfast was adequate.

28 May 2012A journey of mixed experiences
Although I'm technically only rating the trip from Kiel to Klaipeda, we did travel round trip, so this applies to the totality of our experience. The ship was nicer than we expected - quite new and well-appointed. The food was awful, and extremely overpriced. We went hungry rather than eat it. Allegedly there was a restaurant with much nicer (and one suspects even more expensive) fare, but it never opened, and no one ever seemed to know if it ever did. Staff varied considerably in customer service. A barman (young fellow - sorry I don't remember his name) was excellent. Shore personnel at Klaipeda were outstanding, especially the woman who ran the office. Purser over was fine - back not so good. Cabin was affordable on the way over - unaffordable on the way back - nearly double the price. It was "the season". How sailing with empty cabins that could have been sold helps the ferry line escapes me, but policies are policies, I guess. So we endured the reclining seats, with half-drunk noisy partiers going until after two in the morning, and the staff refused to do anything about it. In short, a convenient way to travel, but definitely not cruise line quality.
