Arrange a unique event
Do you want to have a party sipping chilled champagne on a warm summer evening and sitting down to a candlelight dinner on deck as the stars appear – all just a stone’s throw from downtown Helsinki.
Nikolai II has space for up to 90 people standing and sitting. You can either use kitchen or the Barbecue Grill for preparing food. The ship has two large fridges where you can cool your drinks. You can even order your own catering and bring your own alcohol on board. We provide an extraordinary location and authentic Finnish experience.
If you have special requests, please let us know and we can help you!
Our cabins are cozy and comfortable – a genuine pre-WWI experience.
Our historic ship has seven fully restored cabins with 15 bunks in total. The cabins are clean, cozy and has everything one needs. Nikolai II is suitable for travellers with an adventurous spirit and for people who want an experience out of the ordinary – something real and rustic, where you can roll out of bed and onto the quayside for fresh bread and locally roasted coffee.
The ship has a traditional wood-fired Finnish sauna which you can reserve for your own private use. Home comforts include free WiFi and a shared kitchen. On our sun decks you can enjoy the lively vibe of the city and watch the ships go by in the harbour from up on high.
We do not recommend the accommodation for people with disabilities or children with buggies because of the unusual angles and proportions of the boat. The cabins are compact and there are steep steps on board. Please also note that the ship might move slightly depending on the weather conditions, although it’s moored in a sheltered and calm harbour. You can ask our crew for further information about the boat when you’re booking.
