Despite multiple queries that assured us the ship diced with easy access to bus , or so. Had to make our own arrangements to get into town and find bus, then the hop on bus didn't take our voucher, but driver let us on anyway because it was raining. No way back to ship, so managed to find a Viking bus to return. Read Less

We took the ships shuttle to near the centre of town, walked around for a time, then got a local bus ticket that lasts 120 minutes for £2.67 each, taking tram 2 to the Church in the Rock (3 euro I think). We were greeted by an organ recital whilst at the Church in the Rock. We then continued on the tram, changing part way round to tram 3, to do a complete circular tour of Helsinki on the cheap. We ended our time having a fish lunch for 7 euros each at the open air market before getting the shuttle back to the ship. A cheap and cheerful day. Read Less

I have mixed up Helsinki and Stockholm and cant change it. Stockholm is stunning but you need much more time there. We walked the old city which took our available time. Shuttle bus was laid on which was required. Helsinki was nice, but a little flat feeling (on a Sunday Morning) after the beauty and madness of Russia. Read Less

Not nearly enough time in port. You would be able to see one or two things but not even enough time to take the hop on/hop off all the way around once. A real waste of time, a real shame because it is a beautiful city.

Charming with architecture and food market. You have to visit Ericksson's at the covered food market. They serve the best fish (salmon) soup we had in a very long time.

Again we were forced to take the shuttle bus but it was good in that you could get on and off the different sights and they didn’t charge for the children

-If you don't use the ship's hop-on/hop-off bus excursion, there are still plenty of others waiting right outside the ship. -It's a scenic but very long walk from the port to downtown (and back). -We got to the Temppeliaukio Church even before it opened, and there was a long line to buy entrance tickets. The little gift shop across the street, Anne's, also sells entrance wristbands at no additional charge. We got ours there, and were first in the pre-paid line to enter, along with tour groups. -The buses were supposed to run every 15-20 minutes, but it was more like either 5 or 30 minutes between them. -Made it to the National Museum a few minutes before it opened at 11, very nice exhibits. -Walked down Mannerheim to Stockmann's department store, we picked up some unique food in the gourmet supermarket in the basement. -Went to both cathedrals downtown and the bustling outdoor marketplace on the waterfront, and got the hop-on bus there back to the ship.

Easy bus ride or if you like walking it’s about 45 mins to the centre. Lovely town, plenty of history. Walk back to the shop along the coast and enjoy the views

Porvoo was nice but the time involved in going there, having an organized lunch etc. would have been better spent in Helsinki.
