Cruising the Baltic

The Oceania cruise on the Baltic had only one day at sea. We were in port for the remaining days: Copenhagen, Warnemunde, Gdansk, Tallin, St. Petersburg (3 days), Helsinki and Stockholm. Every day we got off the ship, enjoyed a full day of sight-seeing returned to the ship, dined well, had a few laughs and slept soundly while we glided on painlessly to the next port.  To see certain parts of the world, in my opinion and at our age, cruising is the best way to go.  We chose the last Baltic cruise of the season (that I could find) to avoid the crowds and luckily we had splendid weather.
In port, Tallin Estonia

    And those were some beautiful photos.

  2. I would love to go on this cruise. It looks and sounds fantastic. Such an interesting area.
    Maybe next year.
