Have recently returned from a Baltic cruise on the Grand Princess. It was a great cruise and visited many interesting ports. We did most of the ports on our own and would be glad to pass on whatever information we can to others scheduled for the same area.
We are going on the Ren6 next year to many spots in the Baltic - would love your tips on where to go, what to see. Our ports include Copenhagen, St. Petersburg, Tallin, Helsinki, Oslo, and ends up in Stockholm. Please e-mail me with your thoughts on where to go. Thanks in advance.
If you are interested in getting information about Tallinn and/or Estonia please write.
You can find some pictures about Tallinn on my webpage. There are listed some useful links too.

We are taking a Baltic cruise this summer on the R6. Would appreciate any info you can give on doing the port tours on our own. We figure we should take the cruise tours in St. Petersburg because of the visa needed and perhaps safety. However, in the other ports we enjoy doing on our own if we can. We speak only English and do not really want to have to exchange too much money in each country. Our ports are in France, Germany, Copenhagen, Tallinin, Helsinki, Oslo, and Stockholm.
Thanks for any info.
In case you are interested in seeing St. Petersburg with a private guide and save money compared to the ship excursions, please, consider my services.
I have worked as a tour guide for 8 years by now (including cruise ships) and know how little time for sightseeing (and how much for eating!) tourists get when touring St. Petersburg in a group. I provide personalized travel services for those travelers who prefer to travel independently and would like to get their tour custom-tailored to their needs. Apart from visiting the Hermitage and the Grand Palace of Petrodvorets, I can also get you tickets to the Mariinsky Theater. Visas are no problem either - I can send you all needed papers for getting them.
