European Cruises Anyone?
I've been dying to go on a cruise for the past years, ever since my cousin got a job on a trans-atlantic cruiser and he keeps telling me these great stories. Thing is, I've looked at the prices and I'd rather try out a closer-to-home cruise. Anyone that has any experience with European cruises? Any good destinations and companies that you've dealt with and were left satisfied that you got your money's worth?
The only ones you can get really cheap, seem to be the short ones between Sweden - Finland or Estonia.
Closest I came to a mediteraneea cruise was this spring, when I took a short trip to Venice and got there by boat :P You could hardly call that a boat ride, it was more like a taxi trip back and forth, but still, it whet my appetite for sea travel and sparked the salty sea dog spirit in me for some future waterbound adventures. Arrr.
The one in 2008 we went to Rome, Naples, Marmaris, Izmir, Istanbul, Athens, Katakolon and Florence.
Our cruise next year goes to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Gdansk and Oslo.
I've always get the feeling that I would want to see more of the places, so therefor I haven't booked any other cruises - yet.
Wow, that's a powerful trip. I've only been to Oslo of the places you're going to visit and it's an incredibly city, although I fount it atypical for a capital.
My parents also visited St. Petersburg recently and they said it was one of the most memorable towns they've seen in their lives.
Usually when I think of a cruise, I think sun, calm sea, exotic destinations, but now that you've mentioned your future trip, a fjord-cruise doesn't sound too bad either :)
If you stop also in Copenhagen,I can give you some tips what you shouldn't miss there and you can manage it in short time: Cristiana Town,Little Mermaid, Tivoli Garden

Enjoy your trip
