The cruise ship – M/S Birka

Birka is one of the worlds most prominent cruise ships when it comes to comfort, technique and safety at sea. All cabins are above waterline, and unlike the other ferries operating the Baltic Sea there is no car deck on board, which allows our guests full focus on the cruise experience.

At the roof deck the sun always shines. Our recreation area on deck 10 is unique and is equipped with pool, jacuzzis and a sauna with panoramic view. Relax in one of our sun beds by the pool, take a dip or enjoy a cold drink in the bar while improving your sun tan under the artificial sun above. If you are looking for that special experience and really want to give your body a treat, visit our spa!

On board we offer exciting entertainment for all tastes. We have five restaurants and six bars – one of them is a whisky bar with almost 200 different whiskys. You can dance to a live music in our nightclub, party the night away at the disco or listen to soft piano music in the Yacht Club Bar. And of course you can buy tax free products ranging from liquour and make up to accessories and candy.

Have a 22 hour cruise with M/S Birka and experience the difference. The archipelago is closer than you think.
