August 2015 - Norwegian Star to Europe - Northern Europe
The ports of call were, for the most part, quite interesting. St. Petersburg was definitely the best port and we booked a 2 day shore excursion to make the most of our time. If you have the chance, ride the subway in St. Petersburg. It's beautiful! Most people we spoke with did not go to Berlin, choosing to stay in Warnemunde or travel to Rostock for the Schwerin (?) Palace. Stockholm, Helsinki, and Tallinn are easy to do on your own with either a HOHO bus or public transportation. The Star is a beautiful ship with lots of activities, as well as quiet places. Try O'Sheehans for breakfast or a late night snack.
