Marina Baltic Odyssey 9/3/13-9/13/13
Destination: Baltic Sea
We contracted with Baltic Travel Tours for a tour of Gdansk and Sopot. The fee was well worth the expense, which was very reasonable. We had an entire day with a tour guide and driver in a minivan. Our charming tour More guide Anna was very knowledgeable, spoke English very well and was flexible as to what we wanted to see. Tallinn is very doable on your own. Rick Steves has printable walking guide that worked out very well. Onto St. Petersburg~SPB Travel took very good care of us for three days. Alexandre was our tour guide and we were very fortunate to have been assigned to him (or visa versa!). We covered all the highlights of St. Petersburg. It's an exhausting three days due to the history, trying to absorb all the information and there is a two-hour time change between Poland and Russia. SPB was very responsive when I contacted them to book our tours. They were also very efficient emailing our necessary documents and answering my concerns and questions. I would highly recommend them without reservation as I would Baltic Travel Tours. Helsinki is also doable on your own, as is Stockholm. English is spoken everywhere and there is so much information on the Internet, it is easy to plan your own walking tours. One “must see” in Stockholm is the Vasa Museum. Fascinating!
We were very happy with the Marina as we were last year on the Riviera. There is not one detail that the crew is not happy to help you with. The casino provided evening entertainment. We did not go to the shows after dinner (not our thing) but did enjoy Mio the Magician who performed at different venues throughout the ship. Less
Our cabin was at the Conceirge level. The queen size bed was very comfortable. We also had a small couch, a deck with two chairs and a small table. The bathroom included a tub and free standing shower. The storage in the cabin was more than adequate, a large closet and plenty of drawers.
