have a look to this website:
depending when you arrives in Helsinki you find the berth here:
Cruise ship calendar Helsinki.
Here you find the Codes
Looks like you will the call West Harbour.
And here you find a Map
. Looks like it is inconvenient outside the city center around the market square.
But you see that there is route 15 (Bus) available. Here you find the map of this route 15.
Looks very unpleasant. You need to change to the subway. The information of Public Transport in Helsinki you find at HKL.
The best is to buy a one day pass which costs 6 EUR.
Poor girl. We were lucky to berth directly in front of the Market Square when we called Helsinki this summer.
Have a nice trip.
But anyway: Helsinki is a beautiful city. Instead of HOHO-Bus: you can just use tram route 3 which goes like an "8" (double loop) or to use sightseeing from the waterfront. All boats leaving from Market Square.
