Crown Princess Cruise Review by mlanders
- Sail Date: July 2013
- Destination: Baltic Sea
We used Smiths airport taxi for transportation to and from Heathrow, and would recommend them highly. http://www.smithsforairports.com/index.html.
They were always early and very friendly.
We used TJ travel for four city tours, Tallinn, St. Petersburg (2days), Helsinki, and Stockholm. Had a private bus for each city and great guides they were very informative and willing to answer all questions. We went to the folk show in St Pete which was nice, and great to see the theater.
Did our own tours in Belgium, Copenhagen, and Oslo. I would recommend having a shuttle service for Zeebrug to Bruges or Brussels is you stop there. They don't have a lot of taxi service at the port and ship charges 15Euro to get to train depot. Taxi charges 50Euro from port to Bruges for an 8 person van, just meet up with others to share a van and gets cost down.
All the old cities have lots of cobblestone streets so a good pair of walking shoes is a must. You must be ready to be very busy on the trip since there were only 4 sea days.
