It usually leaves for cruises between Tallinn and Helsinki.

Soon, it will instead provide on-site accommodation and food services to approximately 1,500 guests.

Silja Europa has been chartered through the specialist company Landry & Kling Global Cruise Services with a full service and technical crew from Tallink Grupp for the duration of the charter.

All Silja Europa cabins are en suite, air conditioned and equipped with storage space. They also have underfloor heating in the bathroom, radios and telephones for internal calls.

The ship also offers restaurants, a Technogym, a sauna, massages, hairdressing appointments, a beauty salon, clubs and duty-free shopping areas.

In 2020, maintenance was carried out on the ship to make it more environmentally friendly. It is also equipped with shore power systems.

Paavo Nõgene, CEO of Tallink Grupp, said: “Our team helped the organizing team for the G7 summit in Cornwall achieve an excellent result in June this year, two of our ships and our technical crew are performing well in Mediterranean at the moment and I am sure we will challenge ourselves at COP26 in Scotland as well.

“The charter arrangements give a boost to our business in these difficult times where the number of passengers is still not increasing fast enough and we will continue to work to identify further short and long term opportunities for our vessels. . “
