Port and Shore Excursions
We stayed here 2 nights prior to cruise at the best western Hotel City. Beautiful city, very walkable. Did the canal cruise, and Sandemans walking tour. Both worth doing. Had dinner second night in Tivoli at Groftens, very good. Danced to the big band at Tivoli after dinner, free concert.
Copenhagen is a wonderful city. I'd love to go back and spend more time.
We took the bus from the ship to the Church of the Rock. Worth a look.
Took the tram from the Church toured around the city.
Stopped at Market Square to see the various craft stalls, sampled some food, shopped a bit, took tram back to ship.
I give Warnemunde a 5 because of our fabulous Friends of Dave Tour. 10 of us toured Warnemunde with Dave, then took the train to Wismer for another tour and fabulous lunch. Dave's tour was Highlight number one of our Baltic Cruise. He is entertaining, informative, and you leave the tour, a Friend of Dave.
I booked TJ Travel's All St Petersburg Highlights 2 day tour. This was highlight number two on our Baltic Cruise. Everything was handled perfectly before hand online with TJ Travel. All documents ready for arrival. 12 of us joined Alex for two day tours that included a hydrofoil trip to Peterhof, guided tours of the gardens, 2 sit down Russian lunchs, Catherine's Palace, Church of Spilled Blood, St Issac's Cathedral, Peter and Paul Fortress, a Neva River cruise with champagne, early entrance to the Hermitage, a city tour by bus, and Yusupov Palace. We were also give about a half hour for shopping on our second day. A port I will never forget with a tour company that was outstanding.
Our final port. A beautiful city with a wonderful cruise into it through an archipelago. Worth getting up for, sitting on the balcony sipping coffee.
Took the Royal Sightseeing Hop-on Hop-Off BOAT, docked right near the ship. Spotless, beautiful new boats, with beverage service and an exceptionally clean restroom. Two stops at Old Town, one at Sulssen, the other the Royal Palace. Next stop at Nybroviken, then the Vasa museum, then Skeppsholm, then Djurgarden Island where there is an amusement park with rides, then back to cruise berth 167, right near the ship.
We stopped in Old town at the first stop, wandered the old town, saw the changing of the guards at the Palace, then caught the boat to the Vasa Museum. We were at the Vasa a couple of hours, had a tour led in English, and saw and English short film. very interesting, I think a must see.
Loved this port, very beautiful, very expensive, (didn't like that).
What a beautiful Medieval Town. Wonderful walking city with beautiful views when you reach the top. A good town square with reasonable priced craft stalls. Can walk to town from cruise terminal.
