The answer is probably, yes, but to get the most out of DIY I would recommend that you don't rely on just getting there and saying "What shall we do" but start doing your homework looking at your destinations and what they have to offer, printing off a map or two from the net and even finding out about tram, train and bus times and frequencies. The more information you have the more prepared you are and the easier it is. ... Neil.

Unless you apply for a Russian Visa you will have to go on an organized excursion in St Pertersberg or you won't be allowed to disembark from the ship. As for the other ports, if you just want to see the major city centre sites I would advise using the hop-on hop-off buses which come down to the cruise terminals, these can be paid for in dollars or euros and sometimes sterling, and unlike the ship's excursion you can adjust the time at the various attractions to suit your tastes. In Copanhagen a boat trip from New Haven is a good way to see the city. Again in Helsinki boat trips are available from habour next to the market square. If you visit Tallin, I would advise taking the shuttle bus to the city centre and explore this wonderful city by foot. Please note in Tallin some of the bars accept euros, some don't; ask the waiters before ordering if you are like me and don't have any local currency. Knitwear is usually less expensive in Estonia than the "old" European Baltic states.

In St Petersburg if you go with a russian registered tour company you do not need a visa either. I recommend alla-tour, but otheres are denrus, redoctober or anastasia.

Yes it is quite easy to do your own tours in all ports apart from St Petersburg. Most of the others are in easy walking distance of the local town or have shuttle buses near where you leave the ship.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year….. Well I think it is. It is so true what they say, Christmas is so much fun when you have children around. My little boy Finley is 2 and a half now and really starting to understand ‘Mr Christmas’ as he calls him. He is fascinated by Christmas trees with all the lights and decorations, it takes ages to pass a shop that has anything remotely Christmassy in it.We have been waiting for a while now for an operation date for Finley ...
