REFLECTIONS and SUGGESTIONS [8-15-05]
Baltic Sea tour - The Star Princess, preceeded by Princess' land tour. Land: July 18 to 24. Cruise: July 24 to Aug. 3, 2005 Land itinerary: Budapest-Vienna-Prague. Cruise: Copenhagen-Stockholm-Helsinki-St. Petersburg-Tallin-Gdansk-Berlin- Copenhagen.
1. Preliminaries: For my wife and me, ages 58 and 69 respectively (very active persons), this was our 4th Princess cruise. Many persons submit helpful reviews of the Princess ships and commentaries about the places. I'll try to limit my remarks mostly to advice-related matters.
