This would be in September btw.

Berlin (Warnemunde)(Germany)

Tallinn (Estonia)

Are those cool cities to visit the first time going to Europe?

My interest would go more for the first cruise.    I have been in Europe a few times in October early December,  It was cold but not bad,  I was comfortable in a heavy weight fleece jacket from Columbia sporting good over a sweater.   they key is to dress in layers and to have something water proof in case it rains.

 

Last year I did late October to early November in Venice Italy and the weather there was better in Venice then we had when we landed in Seattle WA getting home.

 

If you under pack you can always buy a warmer jacket or sweater in Europe and come home with a nice new garment (European styles are better cuts and nicer styles then a lot of the stuff we get here in the US IMHO).   I always bring home clothing from European vacations.

I would definitely choose the first one. We’ve visited Tallinn, Helsinki and Stockholm a few times and would love to go back. Helsinki is my favourite city out of anywhere I’ve ever been.  I love the Finnish culture, food and history. Tallinn has changed so much in recent years, very modern now, since the coup in 1991, but the old town is still fascinating. Stockholm is also a good mix of history and modern, and so unlike anything here in our part of the world. The people are very proud of their history and enjoy telling stories of their past. 

 

The weather is usually very nice in September with mild to warm days and pleasantly cool evenings. Like JustMe suggested, having layers available to add or take off is always a good idea. Also be sure to have good walking shoes for the old cobblestone streets in the historic areas of Stockholm and Tallinn. 

 

Please let let us know which cruise you decide on.

I'll most definitely let you all know. I'm tempted to go for the first one because they have a studio cabin for $1999. Which I think is a good deal! And the other one doesn't have a studio room(just a inside room.) I will wait till we get back from this cruise (leaving in a week) to see if I like it. Which I'm 99.9999% sure I will. I have been on dolphin cruises in Florida and they toss you around on those things cause dolphins like waves.

 

And also the first one goes to Russia one of my bucket list places.

The way I see it that one is a win win no matter which one you cheese.

Either- it's a cruise. Gotta love it!!!
