The plan for renewing the passenger spaces has been made by Partner Ship Design architects, specialised on cruise vessels. Aker Finnyards has in the recent years made conversions of Silja´s other vessels, too: Wasa Queen, Silja Europa, Silja Festival. The conversion work is estimated to six weeks. GTS Finnjet will start sailing on route Rostock-Tallinn-StPetersburg in June 2004.
