Azamara Journey - Northern European Cruise - Baltic Sea
Destination: Baltic Sea
All the ports of call were spectacular. Stockholm and St. Petersburg were my favorite. We had three whole days in St. Petersburg so were able to see most of the sights we wanted to see, even Peterhof Palace south of St. Petersburg. We chose the cruise ship's package of tours which had us doing something each day in port. We loved it. While I'm not a huge fan of big 'bus tours' everything was taken care for us and every tour guide we had was amazing. And we did have time to strike out on our own so we weren't herded around the entire time. In St. Petersburg we had the same tour guide for all three days so we really got to know her and the history of St. Petersburg and Russia in general. Some of my favorite places: You must visit the VASSA ship in Stockholm. We did this on our own on a free afternoon we had. Very easy to get to and back to the ship. We ended up staying there for three hours. That ship is so amazing. Berlin - seeing some of the Nazi buildings still standing and the Brandenburg Gate. St. Petersburg - Peterhof Palace and gardens one of the most spectacular palaces second only to Versailles. Cruising up and down the Volga river seeing the wonderful buildings and famous sights. Tallin - walking around the walled city. There were many more but those stick out in my memory the most. If you are thinking of taking this cruise - do it! You will not regret it in the least. Less

Good, but not as good as I was...
Another disappointing Azamara ...
Beautiful British Isles
