Le Havre
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
The port city itself doesn't offer much. This port is mainly a jumping off point to visit Paris or other French cities.

City Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
A standard tour around the city. I was surprised by how close the ship comes into the city center. I was also impressed by the variety of architecture in the buildings of Rotterdam. Since it was devastated by WW2, the city has been rebuilt and displays many interesting architectural styles.

One of the highlights was on departure from the pier. A men's vocal group was assembled dockside and sang for us as the ship pulled away.

The approach to the port takes several hours up the fjord and is worth watching.

If you are going to Berlin, I found the Princess tour a great way to go since they have a private train to get you there and back.

Not a big city, but the old town is quite nice to walk around.

St. Petersburg
Private Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We chose a small group private tour to avoid the large crowds on the cruise line buses. St Petersburg is the highlight of the Baltic cruise.
