Tallink’s vessel STAR, which operates on the Tallinn-Helsinki route, was recently renovated at the Klaipeda shipyard in Lithuania.

  • Innovative „EnergoProFin“ solution was fitted on the propellers: an additional screw with small rotors, which increases efficiency and reduces the energy loss resulting from the whirlpool by 2-5%, and which also reduce the underwater noise and vibration caused by the vessel.
  • Complete renovation of Snack Time cafe and Starbucks Café.
  • Sea Pub was updated with a brand new concept.
  • Children’s play area and shopping areas received a facelift.
  • New carpets on the stairs, in the corridors and in Business Lounge.
  • New toilets on whole ship.

During the renovation, arrangements were also made to stop using disposable plastic plates, cups and cutlery in all the restaurants.

STAR returned to the Tallinn-Helsinki route on Tuesday, 22 January.

BALTIC QUEEN and GALAXY are currently being modernised. This spring, two further vessels, VICTORIA I and ISABELLE will also be updated.
