Megastar is modern and developed passenger car ferry in the Baltic Sea. Megastar, which was completed in January 2017 at the Meyer Turku shipyard, uses liquefied natural gas, or LNG, as its fuel, and its advanced hull design results in significant fuel savings when the ship operates. Megastar replaced Superstar, which previously operated on the Helsinki-Tallinn route.

Baltic Queen is the latest of the new buildings commissioned by Tallink in the early 2000s. It was built at the Aker Finnyards shipyard in Rauma. Mea Mehtonen christened the ship on May 12, 2008.
