Silja and Tallink to Merge

Silja Line and Tallink Grupp AS are merging, forming an integrated company that will handle six million passengers a year and become the largest cruise operator on the Baltic Sea. The new company's ships, 21 in all, will continue to operate under their current flags on routes between Finland, Estonia, Germany, Latvia and Sweden. Silja Line cruise ships offer amenities like restaurants, live entertainment, casinos, spas and supervised children's activity centers. The company's sailings between Finland and Sweden will maintain the current timetables, prices and other existing conditions. SuperSeaCat operations between Helsinki and Tallinn will also operate the same way as before and all Silja Line contact information remains the same.
