Copenhagen
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Loved it. Booked Hop on Hop Off bus, easy access from the cruise port. A very reasonable and easy way to get an overview of the city and stop and get off as you wish. Nice port.

Berlin
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
No disrespect to the Warenmundians, but we dock there to get to Berlin, so can't say much about that city. Berlin is a 3 hour train to and fro. We used Hop on and Hop Off again....as said previously, the way to see a city in our opinion. Berlin has a lot of history and, surprisingly still to this day, a lot of emotion connected to it. Neither my wife nor I loved Berlin but are glad we went.

A gem! We've been to Split and to Dubrovnik in Croatia and thought they were charming. Tallinn out charms them all. Nice walk to town from ship, maybe 10 minutes. The walled city is just too enticing to imagine. Small streets, very clean, like Monte Carlo. Lots of crafts and small cafes like Italy or Greece. And then all that history. This is a town not to be missed. BTW, nor is the synagogue.

Another easy port, a quick bus ride from ship to center of town. And a charming town it is...well, city. Great down town shopping center, kind of Parisian in its look. A wonderful waterfront with cafes and gift kiosks and a great view. Couldn't for the life of me understand any Finnish except "Moi" means hello and "moi moi" means goodbye. Great street music too, btw. A nice city to visit.

Well, what can you say about THE tourist stop? It is crowded with tour ships, busses, cars, humanity. And it is impossible without a guide, not to mention if you don't use a tour service you have to purchase your own expensive visa...thanks Russia...you don't make enough on tourists? The Hermitage, the churches, the rivers....there is no way to write about this stop in a paragraph any more than I could write about New York, Rome or Paris in a paragraph. It just seems that much more so because it is....well.....Russia. By the way: Tourist be warned, like the other cities mentioned PICK POCKETS galore.

Stockholm
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
The only drawback to Stockholm is that HAL chooses to dock at Nynashamn and not sailing through the archipelago if Stockholm. It is like sailing into Venice with a blindfold on. So much beauty missed. And another mindless train ride of an hour to get where you are supposed to be in the first place. To be honest they should call the port Nynashamn in the brochures and offer side trips to Stockholm, it would be more truthful. Stockholm is another great city with nice architecture, museums, a synagogue, parks. Another not to be missed port.
