you need to check out the posts on "the other cruising" website, Horatio.

I did a cruise in Russia last spring on the Volga river and really enjoyed that because it allowed us to see more of the whole country instead of just Moscow and St. Petersburg. There were only 3 Americans on the ship, so you need to be ready to "be agreeable" with the Russians, Germans, as well as Brits and Aussies. Our Russian tour guides were all great, and most were young and beautiful if that helps !

The river cruises along the Danube, Rhine, etc. are much more expensive so I have never been interested in them. I don't like museums and dead churches as much as places where people are living in the present and see a bright future.

Lightbulb Seeking other half of cruise fare to offset Baltic trip

Hello,

River cruises are ridiculously over-priced for a single traveler, not bad if traveling with a companion, friend or room mate. This is what I seek!
Is there anyone out there who is interested to make a 7 day river cruise beginning from Copenhagen, returning to Stockholm, visa-verse. I prefer Estonia, Finland, Russia...Not England, this time
To make a new acquaintance is wonderful, a friend, marvelous. But, it is not necessary that we be best of friends or even hang out if this is your preference. You may have your privacy as well, your freedom to enjoy, should you desire spending all or part of your cruise apart other than our financial arrangement for accommodations.
I am easy to get along with, I do not snore, & have only 1.5 bad habits, I eat healthy and avoid smoke!
My desired trip time is May of 2014. If this is of particular interest to you, or to someone you may know, who is looking to cut the cost of traveling solo, please reply as soon as possible - Time is money

Bonn Voyage!

MedicineWoman

looks like a possible "fit" for Helen and MedicineWoman, good luck.

You mentioned Estonia, Finland and Russia on the way between Stockholm and Copenhagen, MW ................. , that sounds like a Baltic ocean cruise instead of a river cruise ? Unless they have a "protected, inland waterway in northern Europe like the USA has around the mid and south Atlantic and Gulf coasts?

I'm not interested in this myself, just enjoy the chat about traveling.
