A great surprise! Transport from Warnemunde to Rostock is very easy, and the town is a delightful medieval walk round in the back streets. Look for the shanty choir at Warnemunde behind the lighthouse.
Magical! Took the hop on hop off bus which allowed us a chance to look in the city and see something of the city outskirts. The market is very interesting. We got a great walking tour out of Lonely Planet. The cathedral is beautiful inside but you can't take photos. Note that they do sell postcards of interior views in the cathedral but I never saw one anywhere outside. Maybe you'll post me one if you go :)
Absolutely superb! Our guide, Nadia, was the best we've ever had anywhere. Not only full of info about the tour destinations, but also happy to talk candidly about daily life in St Petersburg. Our heads were buzzing after two intensive days but we will never forget this experience. GO with Alla!
Again thoroughly enjoyed our limited time in Stockholm. Gamla Stan is a fascinating area, well worth a visit. Again got a good walking tour out of Lonely Planet - Stockholm. Very good and cheap bus service into the city takes about 15 mins. You can get tickets at the info desk inside the terminal. Again the ship's destination crew won't tell you this.
