Brugge (Bruges)
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Landed at Zeebrugge in Belgium and took return train to Brugge which was cheap and easy. Walked around canals, churches etc lovely spot. It's an easy place to see without booking a tour. Great chocolate!

Booked coach from ship into Berlin where we just did 'our own thing' and blown away by memories as you can well imagine. It was lovely to see how many (even though there were thousands) stood beside Berliner Mauer (The Wall) and were respectful to those who lost their lives at the hands of others. As you can imagine it's full of history - Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz etc.

Very busy but a must to see.

Paid for the shuttle bus into Helsinki - only 15mins. Not quite what I'd expected but still nice to visit. Markets great - bought a few second-hand bits and pieces to take home, there were lots to choose from. Fairly busy, with lovely parks and gardens but still had a relaxed atmosphere.

Unbelievable wealth for the wealthy. Two days in Russia is definitely not enough. We booked a two day tour (due to visa problems from our neck of the woods) but well worth the money. Again the history is too much to take in for a short visit but our tour guide was a walking/talking history book and her English was fantastic. I'd like to go back. Older buildings in pale green/blue/yellow/pink.

A wonderland of the past standing beside the modern. Shopping was a little expensive when I transferred it into our currency but best not to do that while on holiday anyway. Some streets reminded me a little of Corfu and again the buildings are the same muted colours of pale blue, green, yellow and pink.

Slight drizzle on arrival but that didn't stop us from paying for yet another shuttle into town - 10mins. Passing so close to the many tiny island that make up this part of the world was amazing. You could almost reach out and touch the trees as we passed. Narrow cobblestone streets with lots of restaurants and shops. We didn't take a tour and just did our 'own thing' again and were completely happy with what we saw.

Paid for a tour that took in the Carlsberg Brewery then off to a typical Scandinavian cold buffet style lunch and worth paying for the tour. Again our guide was full of information and great English.
