Before long it's time to leave Tallinn and head back to Helsinki and home. I would have loved to stay longer as Tallinn always has a special place in my heart. Luckily it's so convenient and easy to hop to a cruise liner and come here. My preferred choice is Tallink (which we used also on this trip) because of the convenience of choosing your times: they offer departures almost every other hour and you can pick the one which is most convenient to you. There are also other companies such as Viking Line and Eckerö Line who also offers day cruises but their departure times usually are too close to arrival times to my liking. If you are headed to Tallinn just to pop to the shop at the harbour, then these two might be better. During summer months there is also Linda Line which offers catamaran travel to Tallinn. It's faster and quite smooth, and definitely something to try. I used to use them a lot during the time we lived in Estonia and I worked at Helsinki Airport.
