Baltic vs. Greek Isle Cruise
I know this is a personal choice but

If YOU had the choice of taking a Baltic or a Greek Isle Cruise, which would you take and why?

Re: Baltic vs. Greek Isle Cruise
Wow, what a choice. !!!!!!! I've cruised the Greek Islands 4 times but never the Baltic. I love the Greek Islands because they are so incredibly beautiful and romantic and full of history. Santorini is my favorite to such a degree that this year that I won a bid on to spend 4 days there as well as 4 days in Venice. Maybe you can find a cruise that does a little bit of both. which ever you choose, you will probably have a cruise of a life time. good luck

Re: Baltic vs. Greek Isle Cruise
Yes, there's no diffinitive answer to a question like that.

I have taken cruises which made some stops in Greece, but have never done a true Greek Islands cruise so I don't think I am in a position to judge. We have, however, done a Baltic Cruise. Maybe it was the ship, the friends made before hand on a message board, the friend that cruised with us, but I consider this to be the best cruise we ever took. Seeing St. Petersburg was an experience of a lifetime. We were lucky because our cruise stayed in St. P. for three days.

What's nice about this problem is that there is no wrong answer.

Happy Cruising,

Re: Baltic vs. Greek Isle Cruise
I have always wanted to cruise the Greek islands, but so far have not. We are taking a Baltic cruise this summer that I am really looking forward to. We decided on the Baltic for this year anyway because we felt it was safer. I hope things change soon so that we can feel safe anywhere.

Re: Baltic vs. Greek Isle Cruise
Really depends on what you are interested in. The Greek Isles are designed for cruising and you can get a good idea of what they are like even if you are only in for a day. Their written history predates that of the Baltics, so there is a lot to see.
I haven't done a Baltic cruise, but I have been to FInland and Russia. I think that you get more of a feel for the culture when you do those countries by land.
