“With the arrival of the MyStar ship, a completely new era will begin on the Tallinn- Helsinki route. The world has changed a lot since the construction of MyStar began in the spring of 2020. 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. The ship’s maiden voyage will be made on Tuesday, December 13, 2022, from Tallinn to Helsinki. MyStar will switch to operating on Megastar’s schedule and Megastar will switch to operating on Star’s schedule.
