Stockholm is picturesque, plenty to see, around noon the military band on horseback travelled around the centre and back to the palace, lovely sight.

Loved Helsinki, had shuttle bus into the city, lots to see, we took a harbour trip that lasted 1.5 hours and was very informative.

St. Petersburg
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
St Petersburg is as expected, grey tennement buildings everywhere looked very dingy, though it didn't help as it rained the whole 2 days we were there. The palaces are worth a visit and also The Hermitage museum, such splendor!! We took trips with P&0 and were very pleased we did, Individual visas cost £125 each and the city is so vast it would have been daunting going solo, also unsafe, there are many pickpockets around, I had a guy try to get in my handbag, luckily I realized what was happening and he only got away with my umberella, there are also plenty of beggars around the tourist sites.

Brugge (Bruges)
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Brugge is about 8 miles from where the ship berths in Zebrugger, we were advised to catch a train for about 8 euros return, the shuttle bus dropped us at the station, the queue at the ticket office was huge, so after waiting 30mins we missed the train, and they only run hourly, we caught a bus just around the corner for 4 euros return, it dropped us off in the square in Brugge and we had a wonderful day walking around the old buildings, a ride on a horse drawn carriage was memorable, 36 euros for over 30 mins, with a guided tour. Lots to do in Brugge well worth the effort in getting there
