A momentary distraction on the road to the pub. (Reply).

Vexingly, if I'd realised the ferry was overnight, I'd have booked the hotel from Tuesday too - we have the convention centre from 0730 or so, but for 15 hours and of course no-one is really expected to work all of that, so I could easily have arrived, dropped my gear somewhere, and done a decent gopher shift.
At the moment (assuming it hasn't changed, sigh; I think I must push the button in the next few days and if someone else emerges try and figure out how to change the booking) Viking is about 70 Euros cheaper than Silja. I looked briefly at the ferry from Travemünde but, hoho, it costs over 800 Euros.
It's kind of you to offer but I don't know how long I will be in Stockholm - essentially only long enough to provide a buffer against missing the ferry, since the journey basically will take c. 24 hours from St Pancras and I won't want to go to London during the morning rush hour if I can avoid it. If I go for the option that involves a 7h bus ride across Germany (yeah, but it's that or circa 4h in Copenhagen after midnight) I may be dead on my feet and wish to flump onto the ferry immediately.
When I've booked I'll post here again and then I'll know how long I've got. There are still some overnight non-sleeper trains; if I'm on one of those I may expect to be a bit more alive.
