The beer place at Viking Line’s other (and slightly newer) HEL-STO liner, m/s Mariella. Used to be pretty identic to Captain’s Corner @ the other ferry, but a year or so ago they decided to dump a biggish Spanish sparkling-wine themed bar/gambling- place in the restaurant area and combine this [formerly] cozy, dark english, place with the disco. Ambiance has dropped since dramatically, as it’s now haunted by loud music, teens and others just wanting the lappare&shotti (pee’n’shit) specials.

The beer manu is pretty static, changing only about once a year, but they do get occasional batches of nice fresh Stallhagen brews (it’s a Ålandic company, and tey stoip by Marienhamn each trip). But even though the selection isn’t that wide, it’s surprisingly well designed. There’s some good abbeys, IPAs, quality wheats. Not really too rare ones, but good examples of each style. And, in Finnish standards, cheap. E.g., right now a brewdog hardcore will set you back about €4.5 served at the bar, and they sell their beers take-away cheaper than I’ve seen anywhere (<2€ bottle).

Goudanband. That’s all you need to know. Not just that, but because they’re at sea they’re allowed to sell it to you closed, to take away. Buy one more than you need and give it to me to thank me for this advice ;-)

A decent pub found in the most unusual place - a cruise ship sailing between Helsinki and Stockholm (where the tax-free shops only sell cheap lagers). Selection is quite small, but much - as it’s tax-free - cheaper than in other pubs in Helsinki or Stockholm. If you’re at M/S Mariella, this is the only decent place to spend time at - while watching the direct sea view. At 04/2006 they served, for example, Huvila Blonde (draught, 5.30€/0.5l), Chimay Blue (3,80€/0.33l), Goudenband (4,80€/0.375l), Westmalle Dubbel (3.80€/0.33l), Traquair House Ale (3.80€/0.33l), Anchor Steam, as well as several weizens and lagers. Smoke is in better control than in the Captain’s Corner (at M/S Gabriella). They gave a tall lager glass for the Goudenband, so the staff is still learning... The Belgians were not ice-cold, which was nice.
