Despite the weather being cold, light rain, windy, and foggy we had a GREAT time on this dinner cruise. All the staff was pleasant and helpful especially when they realized we couldn't speak or understand a word of Finnish. Our server walked us through the buffet line explaining all they different foods. It was our first traditional Finnish meal on... More

When I found out I could get an old steamboat to Moomin World there was no other option for me. I booked my place via email after some excellent customer service and advice from the staff. I was travelling from Helsinki by train that morning and was unsure of walking distance and the likes - get a taxi ;) The... More

I strongly recommend you to take an evening cruise with the steam boat S/S Ukkopekka (named after my grandmother's grandfather ;-) ) to the Loistokari island where you are served seafood and entertained by traditional Finnish music and pier dance. The cruise takes about 40 minutes on way and especially during summer high season advance booking is recommended. the total... More

This is a very fun day trip to Naantali from Turku. The boat is charming and the personnell are very happy and willing to help. However, the route is going besides the big oil harbours and not the beautiful archipelago so much as I had expected.

Went on a cruise from Turku to Naantali and it was amazing. Believe them when they warn the whisle is loud, keep for your ears ;) Boat not nice for those with reduced mobility, but staff is kind and helpful. Did combine it with the guided tour to Kultaranta (the president's summerpalace). Highly recommend. Time in Naantali well enough to... More

The interior is pretty and romantic. It's cold out on the deck, even on a relatively warm July day, and because of the strong wind it was difficult to hear the audio tour-type presentation coming from the speakers. Otherwise we (me and 2 French friends) enjoyed the ride. The lunch did not look particularly tasty though, but the personnel was... More

We had such a lovely evening trip to Loistokari with S/S Ukkopekka steamship in August 2015. We chose the Loistokari evening cruise that takes about 4 hours (19-23). First there is a boat trip to Loistokari island where you have time to taste some appetizers and enjoy the beautiful Finnish archipelago. When we got to the Loistokari there was amazing... More

When we read the write-up about the trip, neither of us realised that dinner would be on the island of Luostokari! We stopped there after an hour of sailing (Finnish tapas and drinks served on board) and were told about the barbeque buffet. We chose seats at long wooden trestle tables, and went to collect our food, which consisted of... More

For the fish lovers - must taste. The rest of dishes - acceptable. Definitely I recommend to visit while you are in Turku. Enjoy.

I've lived in Turku for 20 years with my Turku born husband but have never managed to take a s/s Ukko-Pekka cruise before. Well, it was about time to do so!
