We did a Baltic Cruise with Celebrity in May and did a trip from the port Rostock to Berlin which is a 3 hour train journey the ship hired the train which was full of people going on different trips,on arrival in Berlin we then boarded the waiting coaches for the different tours,we then all met up at a certain time at the train station for our journey back to the ship,it was a long day 12 hours altogether but worth it Regards Iren.

This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board.
