Default starboard or portside for Baltic cruise?

We are planning a Crown Princess Baltic cruise for next summer and would like to know which side has best viewing for balcony ( ports etc.) or if it does not matter at all . thanks for any input! Lydia

Hi Lydia,

We have been to various Baltic ports on several occaisions, and have to say that it's a bit of pot luck really.

In Oslo we've moored both port & starboard - one view is the fort, the other is the Fjord.

In Russia we've only moored out in the main dock where there is nothing much to see. We've always moored portside to the dock, and there will be a small band for arrival & sailaway.

In Tallin we've only ever moored out by the ferry terminals, here you should moor up starboard side, but again not much to see from the ship.

Helsinki sees you in another industrial dock, as does Hamburg.

Travemunde is another 'in the distance' port, you will probably turn around & moor up to the port side. Again this is in a ferry area, so starboard is of more interest.

Copenhagen - usually portside in, a few shops to look at, or from a starboard balcony you can watch the harbour movements.

There's many other ports, but those were the most likely ports of call. If you are planning on going elsewhere, please list the ports & I'll try & recall them.

You'll have a great time, (once you get away from the docks ;o)
