Wonderful time in the Baltic on the Sun

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Copenhagen
My wife and I have had 10 other cruises. When this Baltic cruise came up so inexpensive I jumped at it. We flew into Copenhagen one day early and took a segway tour with Seamus of CPH-tours. The city is beautiful and the tour will be something we will never forget. We stayed at the Scandic Palace Hotel. It is centrally located and every nice with a free buffet. Embarkation was a snap and luggage was at our room within an hour. Can't say enough about the friendliness of the crew. From the captain, Jaime CD and our room steward, Rey the were all great. The ship was very beautiful with glass elevators in the centrum. It was a small ship with a big heart. We ate in the MD and buffet only and the food was every good. The entertainment was very good. Our balcony room had more storage than we needed. We attended the art auction, always good information and very interesting.
The ports was excellent. We use SPB-tours for all all our tours. They were excellent. I highly More recommend them. Berlin, with it's 3 hour bus ride in, was still wonderful to see (the wall, gov. buildings and churches). Tallinn is the oldest city with old town with feudal walls. St. Petersburg (Hermitage, Peterhof, Catherine's Palace, Church on the Spilled Blood, etc.) was not to be missed. We had never seen anything quite as wonderful. Helsinki was a short tour, but nice. Stockholm has a beautiful port with a 3 hr. sail in.
We walked off for a 10:30AM flight. Made it in plenty of times for our long trip home. Less
