> visiting Taillin and taking the ferry to Helsinki.

I did it the other way, based in Helsinki and took the medium ferry to Tallinn. (There were several options, ranging from expensive and very fast to cheaper and slower). Tallinn has a bit different flavor than Helsinki, in part because it was behind the iron curtain for so long. Estonia and Finland share the same unusual and uncommon language.

If you are in the Baltic area consider the overnight ferries. They are an experience in themselves (great scenery, dinner, sauna, and nightclubs on the boat) and your cost includes a night's lodging. Routes include Oslo-Copenhagen and Helsinki-Stockholm.

Yes, we took an overnighter from Venice to Corfu and it was much the same experience (dining, nightclub etc). We booked ahead of time, did you need to do this as well?
