Cruises to the Baltic Sea

Once sailed by explorers of the Viking Age, the Baltic is home to a myriad of cultures, languages and storied pasts. The northernmost region of Europe encompasses the Scandinavian countries such as Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. Most Baltic cruises overnight in glorious St. Petersburg, Russia; stops in historic Tallinn, Estonia, and Warenmude, Germany - gateway to Berlin - are also possible. The breathtaking Norwegian fjords represent a world all in its own.

I chose the cruise due to the itinerary, what I didn't factor in was the disasterous on and off loading of passengers at port. I've never been on a cruise, that had so few crew involved in the going ashore process. On good days, we were able to ... Read more
