Almost all ferries have cabins onboard available for purchase. Some routes (often overnight) require a cabin, which is included in your ticket. You can always upgrade your cabin for extra money. The cheapest cabins are usually in the bottom of the ship near the engines. We suggest trying to avoid these at all costs, especially during the winter when there are rough seas.

On Baltic Sea ferries, there are generally a lot of activities to choose from. There are many restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping. On larger ships you can also find night clubs, spas and theaters.
