Cabin: Interior Stateroom

As we were going to be in Copenhagen we thought we should do something from there.

3 days in Copenhagen was great and the HOHO(Hop on hop off Bus) was great to get around. The 3 day pass seemed a bit dear but when you consider we got 2 free beers at Carlsberg Brewery and on our last day you could take your bags on the HOHO and when you got off at the mermaid(forget her name) they transported you to your ship for free.

As to the MSC Opera we had a good time on board.The ship was clean and tidy and so was our internal cabin. Mudaffar our cabin attendant was polite, funny and cleaned our cabin well.There was enough room in the cabin because we we always on deck somewhere.Dining was good and our waiter/wine steward Jean-Paul made sure everything was alright.Entertainment was good generally but sometimes did not suit us. Regarding port and shore excursions you needed to deal with Kathy as she was informative , polite and very knowledgeable.

Copenhagen

Basically did some homework and walked off the ship and explored to our hearts content. Sometimes walking,sometimes Hop On Hop Off and sometimes bartered for a taxi. In St Petersburg organised from Home beforehand

Riga

Walked everywhere. Good for doing things at your pace

Tallinn

Walked again . Fascinating place

Helsinki

Again we did some homework and took the HOHO(Hop on hop off) and explored at our leisure

Stockholm

Hired a Taxi between 6 and went to Summer Palace and the into town

Gdansk (Warsaw)

Hired a bus for 6 at Gdynia Port and went to Gdansk. One of the better tours although all were great. An interesting place

Rostock (Warnemunde)

HOHO to Rostock - really great
