We will be on the above mentioned cruise in August. Is there anyone out there that has just returned from this cruise? I'm wondering which nights are the formal nights? Any tips about must see/must do in the various ports? Do you dock within walking distance to town? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Had that itinerary years ago on another ship.
Don't miss the Hermitage in St Petersburg, ditto the Winter Palace. tour Stockholm, Helsinki, and Oslo. If you do Copenhagen, go to the Tivoli and eat at one of the restaurants there. If you go to Amsterdam, Don't miss the van Gogh Museum, the ricks Museum and Ann Frank's house. And the red light district.
As for the Crown Princess, it is a wonderful ship! Say hi to Juvie in the Crooners lounge for us and have a 'Blue Eyes.'
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.

I was on the Star last september on the same cruise you will have a great time. Take a lot of layers as the weather changed so fast. Russia and Estonia where my fave ports.
