11 Night Scandinavia & Russia (Copenhagen Roundtrip) Sail Date: May 13, 2011 Ship: Emerald Princess Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Large Group Reviewed: 6 years ago
As always the crew and all of the staff were great and very helpfull. We had a great cabin attendant who anticipated all of our needs. Probably on of the best we have had and we have traveled on multiple cruises on multiple cruise line. My only complaint would be the times we ate the buffett, the variety was getting a little limited.
A very nice city, but we had a very short stop and it was Sunday. All business were closed we used the hop on an hop off buss. We were told everything was closed. But we discovered a large open air market not one mentioned. Our only problem we never had time to visit it. 5 to 6 hours in port is just not enough time
2 days in port and pleanty of time to get a good feel of the city, Don't miss the Hermitage and the Spilt Blood Church. Also the trip and visit in Peterhof was good. We took the optional cultural of the Russian Folk Show, this was a great program. We had an excellent tour guide one of the top 2 we have ever had
We traveled to Scherwin and visited Rostock. A beautifull area with rolling hills and farms, castle and Scherwin were interesting and good comparison for how things have changed since the fall of the Wall
We loved Tallin, We had a good tour of the city and its main highlights. I would recommend to anyone to tour the city on your own. Port is easy walking distance, the people are welcoming. With what free time we had we ate in the old town and were able to shop both in the old town and the open air by the market
Don't Miss: Tour on your own. Do your shopping here, it has the best shopping and the lowest prices of the whole trip
Visit the viking museum and the living village. We took a trip of the Harbor beautiful sightseeing, but I would recommend that you skip it it takes too long and you see the same areas when you leave. I
Pros: The people and atmoshere was very welcoming, with great sights in all countries
Cons: No real cons other then the high cost of everything in the countries visited except Estonia
