Onboard with children

A ship quiz and lounging on sun deck

The cruise itself is already an adventure for a child: different decks and corridors on the ship to explore. We welcome people of all ages to cruise on the Finnish m/s Finlandia and enjoy a sea voyage.
In the summer of 2020, children can enjoy a fun ship quiz aimed at them. The quiz starts after midsummer. Get more information about the ship quiz and answer sheets from e.g. the information desk at m/s Finlandia.

One highlight of a sea voyage is of course a visit to the ship's outer deck: Bar Laituri is a sheltered place even in windy weather and a excellent place to watch passing ships, the scenery and sea or the city skyline. At Bar Laituri you can enjoy refreshments and ice cream while lounging in the sun.

A Colouring booklet for young diners and a soda bracelet

When hunger takes you by surprise, it’s time to dine at Buffet Eckerö onboard. Children can feast on for example French fries and meatballs. They also get a colouring booklet and crayons to enjoy during the trip.

The ship’s restaurants also sell soda bracelets for children for 5 €/person. With the bracelet you get unlimitedly soda at the ships restaurants.

Children’s play area near the Cafeteria

Young children love to play in the ship’s play area, which is located on deck 8 next to the Cafeteria. The play area has soft blocks, games and a small children’s slide among other things. The location near the Cafeteria makes it easy to fetch a snack while playing. Through the windows you can watch the ships out at sea. There is no ball pool at m/s Finlandia.

Also children feast at Buffet Eckerö

The whole family can enjoy Scandinavian tastes at Buffet Eckerö. The menus according to season have delicacies for all ages and the dessert table is the highlight of the trip to many younger passengers. During school holidays there is a Children's table including among others spaghetti Bolognese, chicken nuggets, sausages, French fries and meatballs. We also have a generous buffet breakfast to keep you going for the day. Remember that up to 80 percent of our food is self-made – we serve food made in the ships own kitchen.

Soda bracelet

A boat trip is a feast in everyday life, a time to celebrate with a soda bracelet. With the bracelet you get unlimitedly soda at the ships restaurants. 

Magician and playworker onboard

During school autumn leave, winter leave and summer leave there is special activities for both younger and a bit older children. For younger children the Conference centre is usually one big playroom and there is also a playworker and a magician on board. Special activities and programme are planned for holidays, see these pages for details. During summer the whole family thrives also on m/s Finlandias sun deck, where it’s nice to watch the ships crossing on Gulf of Finland and sun bathe.

Favourite artists onboard

There is live music every day on m/s Finlandia. Every week Finnish pop, hip hop, rock and schlager stars enter the stage at Bar Nosturi and Pub Telakka.
