September 2016 - Norwegian Star to Europe - Northern Europe
Our Baltic cruise was perfect! The weather was unusually warm and sunny the entire 9 days. Our 2 days is St. Petersburg were our favorites because we got to spend the most time there, although a 3rd day would have been even better. We didn't have enough time to truly explore Helsinki or Stockholm but thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The food on the ship was, of course, outstanding with plenty of variety. We love being able to eat any time we want without having to dress up. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, the stateroom small but ample and cleaned every day. (I wish I could bring Lobo home with me!) I definitely recommend this tour. We took local transportation most of the places without any difficulty with the exception of St. Petersburg, where we used a local travel agency instead of the more expensive cruise lines' tour. We thoroughly enjoy interacting with the locals, who usually speak excellent English and are very helpful. I was in a wheelchair and was able to travel with ease.
