If you are in stockholm and you want to get to helsinki don't hesitate to take the Viking Line ship.
It is a big cruise ship and the travel lasts one night. In the ship you can find restaurants, supermarkets, shops, sauna, discos, pubs and there are also some shows and karaoke.
All the stuff you want to buy on board is tax free (and that's the reason why a lot of finnish and swedish guys often take this ship to buy alchoolic bevarages and sigarettes).
You can travel with a cabin (but unless you can spend a lot of money expect to have a really small one) or you can buy a ticket just for the passage and spend the whole night in the disco or just going around the ship.
There is also a sleeping room where you can lay on the floor and have a rest.
Everything is very luxurious and finally i think it is really a beautiful experience.

Prices vary widely depending on if you are a student or you travel in a group or if you hold an inter rail or scan-rail pass.
Also the price depends on the day of the week you want to leave (friday and saturdaty are the most expensive), on the period of the year and on what kind of cabin you want.
Viking line travels also beetween helsinki and tallinn
