A 24-hour cruise to Stockholm from Finland is possible to be made using either the Tallink Silja Galaxy or Tallink Silja Europa cruise ships.
These two ships both depart from Turku, about an hours drive / train ride from Helsinki, so that one of the ships depart during the morning hours, and the other on the evening, and the journey time for both is about a full day, 24 hours.
