Royal Caribbean ~ Jewel of the Seas ~ Baltic Cruise ~ July 13-25, 2006 Itinerary: Harwich-Oslo-Copenhagen-Stockholm-Helsinki-St. Petersburg-Tallinn-Harwich

If you are reading this to compare Royal Caribbean's Baltic Sea cruise to that offered by another cruise line then I first commend you. I second advise you up front to book a cruise line that departs and ends at Copenhagen or some other Baltic Sea port and not one that departs or ends at Harwich, England.

I offer two reasons. The first is that London is at least two and a half-hours driving time away from Harwich (pronounced "Ha-wick"). In our case (and judging from the complaints from other weary travelers), we waited almost an additional hour at Heathrow for more passengers to arrive before our bus was determined to be full enough to depart for Harwich. What awaits you upon arrival in Harwich is a slow queue line to check-in. Four hours may not seem like much time, but after a long flight it is.
