Copenhagen
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

It is very easy to do a walking tour on your own in Copenhagen. Maps are available at the port and it's a very friendly port. The Little Mermaid is very close to the ship. If you'd like to visit a cafe, they're very happy to take Euros.

Berlin
Rostock Walking Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We didn't want to do the full-day Berlin tour, so we opted for local tours. We traveled first to Warnemunde (what a nice seaside resort) and then took the train to Rostock. We did a walking tour and had lunch. The schnitzel was excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very entertaining.

Helsinki
Old Town Porvoo Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Going to Porvoo gave us a better appreciation of Finland than we would have had if we had stayed right in Helsinki. The countryside is very different.




Temppeliaukio Church (The Rock Church) Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We stopped to see Temppeliaukio as part of the end of our excursion. It is a really unique church.

St. Petersburg
Catherine Palace Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Definitely a must see, especially the Amber Room. It's amazing to look at the photos of how this palace was so badly damaged during WWII and the restoration.




Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood Rating: 5+ out of 5+

This church is what you expect to see in Russia.




City Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Good overview of the city.




Hermitage Museum Rating: 5+ out of 5+

Our guide had a great knowledge of the history of the Hermitage and the artwork.




Neva River Cruise Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

The river cruise gives a really good overview of St. Petersburg.




Peter & Paul Fortress Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Only complaint here is that it was crowded. It was hard to get a good view of the interior. However, we had an exellent concert from an a capella group in a chapel.




Peterhof Palace Rating: 5+ out of 5+

Wow. This was my favorite part of the tour. The fountains are unbelievable.

Tallinn
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We absolutely loved Tallinn. It's very easy to do a walking tour on your own. We had lunch in the town square - local beer and Baltic herring. Very enjoyable.

Amsterdam
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Amsterdam is very unique, very quirky. We opted for a canal tour to give us an overview of the city. Afterward, opted for beer and Dutch cheese at a cafe.
