I would like to thank the entire Tallink MyStar project team, the Rauma shipyard and all the partners who have been involved in making our dream a reality,” commented Tallink Group CEO Paavo Nõgene.

MyStar is scheduled to leave the Rauma shipyard on Friday 9 December 2022 and arrive at the port of Tallinn on Saturday 10 December 2022.
