MS Saimaa Margareta has been named as a tribute to Saimaa and a Finnish woman. Saimaa has a colorful history from the Ice Age to modern times. The creation of the watershed, the Saimaa ringed seal, the time path from the Stone Age settlement to the present day with its battles and defense lines, the opening of the waterway, and mapping to the present day all form a whole, the understanding of which creates the foundation for the spirit of Saimaa. On themed and scheduled cruises, we tell the story of Saimaa, tying it to the route and, if desired, fitting it also to charter cruises.
MS Saimaa Margareta operates from Lappeenranta’s passenger harbor, right next to the harbor square, in front of the flag line (Satamatie 1, Lappeenranta).
