Imperial Treasures Cruisetour#1
Destination: Baltic Sea
Once we boarded the ship for Scandinavia and Russia, of course, the weather changed; we knew it would be cooler with rain. Then of course big bus loads on the shore excursions. Unfortunately on our More first excursion to Oslo, the guide did not provide any "headset" for us to hear her with and when you have massive tourists around you it is difficult to hear anything; way too crowded at the viking ship museum.
I have to say I was pretty impressed with the food on the ship. It was very good. We did first seating traditional dining, all meals were presented well and tasted very good.
This was a very port intensive trip, and I'm in good shape at 62, and I was glad to get home after 3 weeks! We love the history and culture, however, towards the end of the trip all of the churches, museums, castles as well as the Scandinavian countries started to look alike.
Favorite places: Budapest is amazing! Finland was beautiful as well - take the shore excursion to Porvoo (old town).
We enjoyed the land tour so much that perhaps next time we will skip the cruise and take a Globus tour. Less
Cutters and Canners vs Prime
Fair Itinerary, Wrong Ship
Nice but nothing particularly ...
