One of the highlights of the cruise and booked with TJ Travel which as I covered above was exceptional. Boris our tour guide was fabulous and for those thinking they don't want to take the 90 mins to Berlin from the ship, it goes by quickly, you have a stop plus you see the German countryside. We would not have missed this for the world and Berlin is an extraordinary city that is worth a visit by itself. Read Less

Berlin on your own - shuttle bus, but no aircon on the way back in 35 degree heat. That is just bad luck. We encountered scammers so mind your bags. Walked around the major sites. If had more time I would check out the palaces outside the ... Read More
Berlin on your own - shuttle bus, but no aircon on the way back in 35 degree heat. That is just bad luck. We encountered scammers so mind your bags. Walked around the major sites. If had more time I would check out the palaces outside the city. I felt Berlin had lots of history, but personally have enjoyed other cities more. Read Less

We did our own thing in Warnemunde where they were having a Tall Ship Festival. It was a lovely little town and the Tall Ships were beautiful.

Warnemunde is a lovely seaside town. The ship docked 5 min walk to canal lined with restaurants and cafes. This was a nice quiet day after previous days of city sightseeing. The beach is broad and sandy and we spent the day wandering along the promenade and reading our books on the beach. Being the Baltic, the sea was a bit cold for a swim, and there was a strong breeze, but some hardy Germans did venture in! The beach has loads of beach shelters/deck chairs which you can hire for the day. Read Less

This port is actually 3 hours (by train) north of Berlin. So if you want to see Berlin, it is a minimum of 6 hours travel by train and can be a very long day. We opted out and plan to do a road trip of Germany in the future. We took a quick train ride to Rostock. Buying the train ticket was the most challenging part of the day. But with patience, it got done. It was nice not to be in a city (knowing many city ports were coming up) and just meander through a town. We walked to the main square and spent time in St. Mary's church, a 13th century church, worth the train ride alone. Although we did not opt to do so as our travel partners were tiring, there is time and we would have loved to grab a beer at one of the cafes in the square and just enjoy our time in Germany. We made up for it. We took the train back to Warnemunde (where the ship actually comes to port), a seaside village. Our travel partners returned to the ship and we strolled through the, busy/crowded, seaside/beach community, but it was nice. We climbed the lighthouse for a great view of the area, strolled the beach barefoot, and hit a cafe for a German beer, German Reisling and bratwurst before returning the ship. A lovely day and not chaotic. Read Less

Rostock (Germany) - Surprisingly peaceful and clean. We enjoyed our day here especially the shops and harbour.

Finland a clean and simple city, catch a shuttle bus and explore - 2 or 3 hours will take in most of the major sites

We took the S-bahn to Rostock hoping to see the Stasi museum, but it was closed. It was still a short, enjoyable visit. We enjoyed the ocean resort town of Warnemunde more, though.

Everyone talks about Berlin and Rostock. If its a beautiful day, bring your bathing suit and enjoy the gorgeous town of Warnemunde. Totally underrated. Beautiful beach, tons of shopping and restaurants! We took the train to Rostock but when we got back to Warnemunde, decide we wouldn't have minded spending the entire day there. Read Less

Warnemunde: It was a cool and rainy day. We walked to the train station (10 minutes) and bought a regional day ticket (€37 for 4 people). We took the train to Rostock and our initial plan was to tour downtown Rostock and then visit the castle in Schwerin. Due to construction on the rail line, we opted for plan B and headed on another train to Wismar, a Unesco Heritage site, well preserved and restored. We view exhibits at the tourist office, and stopped for coffee and cake at Café 28 near the market square. We strolled through the streets and viewed the old buildings then headed back to the train. The weather did not clear up for the evening, so we did not return to town for an evening stroll as we had hoped. Read Less

IMO, useless for a Baltic Cruise. Can be used for a quiet day, as there is so much to do before and after this stop. Rostock is a nice city, the cathedral is worth a visit.

We didn't go to Berlin as the journey time was several hours, instead we visited the small town of Waramunde where the ship berthed and also took a train to Rostock (dont forget to validate your tickets on the platform if you do use the train) which is a pleasant enough town with lots of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. We travelled back on a boat which was very pleasant. Read Less

We were at the port of Warrenmunde . It is a lovely walk in to the town. There are a few quaint shops, the most beautiful beach. We took a ride on one of the boat trips there. Very nice.

Nice to get to go off on our own and experience the city. We had spent 2 days by ourselves before the cruise. Highly recommend Berlin...the food atmosphere and people were great. Such a helpful place.
