12 Night Scandinavia & Russia (Harwich Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 26, 2006
Ship: Jewel of the Seas

We saved for several years for this cruise and it was totally worth it. The Jewel of the Seas is a lovely ship. It is laid out a little differently than the other Royal Caribbean ships we have been on. All of the ports of call were execellent. Was a little disappoint with St. Petersburg, Russia. They like the travelers money, but the tour guides seemed a little "put out" that we were there. Not a friendly City at all. But the rest was really AWESOME!

The Provoo Highlights was great! It is the oldest town in Finland. Great with quaint shops and streets.

Don't take a tour. Take the shuttle into the old town. This port best seen by walking on your own. What a wonderful country. They are very proud of what they have accomplished since 1991 after Russia gave them their freedon.
Don't Miss: MUST WALK AROUND THE TOWN ON YOUR OWN - Absoulutely wonderful!
