The tour guide provided us with an overview of Bruges and an excellent map. In Bruges, we did three different walking tours that we had found independently, covering approximately 8km. We enjoyed the medieval feel of Bruges and although it was overcast, it was great exploring weather.
We also had time to shop for chocolates - a definite must do!
Warnemunde is an adorable place, full of character and very easy to navigate. It was a glorious day, so we took a walk along the promenade and along the beach. There were a few naturists on the beach so any prudes would have to avert their gaze. We found that there was an excellent atmosphere in the town and some lovely outside cafes and restaurants with seafood offerings.
Two days were not enough to take everything in here. We took two of the ship's excursion packages and had a good taste of what was on offer. We visited Catherine's Palace and Gardens, had a Russian lunch and then were guided round the opulence of the city. On the second day, we visited Peterhof.
The ship's tours were good but we felt that there was too much time given over to shuffling the guests into tacky souvenir shops IMHO.
Immigration was very efficient and easy.
We didn't visit the Vasa museum. All of the tourists sites are within easy walking distance from ship. We saw the changing of the guards and the old town. It seemed to lack the character of some of the other ports of call.
