Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Ocean View

One of our best cruises ever. Everyone must take this itinerary.

We combined with 7 night standard Baltic back to back.

Only 52 people on back to back. meet at 9 for new room cards

Cabin Review

Ocean View

large window, some slight distoration when viewing outside.

bed excellent, room has some dated furniture, but all functional.

TV could be upgraded, but need to wait for next drydock likely.

lots of storage space. we travel light, so no problem

always recommend to take lots of strong magnets to hold up stuff. Walls are all steel.

clothpins also useful to take along with your own alarm clock or use smartphone.

lots of towels when required, ice available.

mini frig also available.

no shampoo/conditioner bottles, just dispenser (better for environment anyways)

Port Reviews

Copenhagen

always come into town early

Suggest one arrives early or stay after cruise in Copenhagen.

Lots to see and do. easy to walk city, you can also do hop on hop off.

Easy to take Metro from airport into Central, but need to drag bags a bit, depending on where you stayed. We stayed at AC hotel Bella Sky, very modern, close to Metro, near airport. Tivoli gardens a must visit, don't need to go on rides, can buy just entrance ticket. Carlsberg brewery has free tour, but was closed for construction. we walked around to various gardens. several Palaces close by. Rosenborg, Amalienborg and Chrisianborg. Little Mermaid, too touristy. harbour tour is highly recommended. Walk up the round tower for sure. Easy ramps. Stroget is Europe's longest pedestrian shopping street. Very interesting, lots of high end shops, plus LEGO store. We took the bus/train into central station, another nice way to arrive

had lunch by Nyhavn, people watch, boats, nice atmosphere

Honningsvag (North Cape)

used Blue Puffin tours, guide Monica, also owner, from Poland originally

highly recommended. fishing village, drive through area no forest, see lots of reindeer.

see lobsters up close, to NordKapp, northenmost point of Europe, very windy, interesting history, had free time.

excellent tour
