I am scheduled to go on the Holland America Amsterdam, July 5th Scandinavia-Russia cruise. I would love information relating to the ship's tours...comments, recommendations, advice. They are ALL extremely costly.Therefore, we want to be selective.
You will love this cruise!! In St. Petersburg, visit the Peterhof and Catherine's Palce and the Hermitage (full day and 1/2 day) tours. We did two full days and it was a bit much. In Helsinki, the tour of the architects' homes was interesting and different if you like this kind of thing. The Vigeland Park in Oslo was great but crowded.
Weather was perfect-sunny and warm but not hot.
