Q: I bought a breakfast voucher but missed breakfast. Can I use the voucher somewhere else?
A: Yes. You can use the breakfast voucher for food in most of the cafes and restaurants on board.
If your purchase is more than 11e and you use the voucher, you need to pay the rest yourself. You can even use the voucher for a night snack if you realize during the night that you are definitely not making the breakfast, but some food would do good "right now".
Q: Is there any other (cheaper) options for food than the buffet dinners?
A: Yes. On board you can find several restaurants and cafes that serve food in variable prices. Most, but not all of the menus you can find from Silja's restaurant list.
For example, cheap options for food can be a sushi set for 10.50 €, salad for around 8.50 € from Sushi & co, a steaming hot bowl of Salmon soup for around 10.50 € or a (veggie) burger for around 14/16 € from Cafe Mundo. If you feel like Italian, restaurant Tavolata offers meals from around €19 and above (cheaper smaller plates, starters etc).
You of course have the option to visit nearest supermarket and restaurants when the cruise ship is in harbour during the day. The cruise ship has refrigerator units that work on a 2 € fee per visit, so you can bring in your own stuff to supplement / replace some of the meals. And the tax free shop sells snacks and tax free beverages free of tax.
Q: Is the tap water drinkable?
A: The tap water is drinkable in Finland, Sweden and on board the cruise ship.
Q: I have not received my confirmation email. What to do?
A: First check your spam folder. If the mail is not there, send us an email, we will fix it.
Q: I have to cancel my ticket
A: If you find out that you can't make it to Solmukohta after all, please inform us as soon as possible. We handle cancellations on a case by case until the 1st of February 2016.
After 1st of February, we can not refund tickets in any circumstances.
If you find out that you cannot make it after the 1st of February 2016, let us know anyway, as maritime law requires us to list which of our participants are on board.
Q: Do I get a confirmation email when I have paid?
A: When we have received you payment, we will either:
We check made payments few times a week. Please remember that international bank transfers take a few days to appear on our bank account.
If you think that your name should be on the participant list, or you should have received an email, contact us.
