Think it is 'Jewel of the Seas' and if she is leaving from Harwich then she goes to the Baltic and no where near the Nile..... The trainstation is right next to the port - literally a few yards to walk.

Yes, the train actually takes you right into the port; you just have to cross the road to the check in place. Check in and embarking there is very efficient, at least that is what we found when we went with Thomsons on 4th August to Norway. Sorry can't help you about the weather where you are going, but hope you are reassured about the train. Have a nice trip. Regards Eileen Button Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk .

It is very close/ Get off the train and cross the yard and you are in the check in area. There are plenty of trolleys and assistance. Ehen you get off the train the ship if no more tnan 50 yards away from you. Have a great holiday assume you are going on the Jewel of the Seas ship to where! We were on the ship in June a great ship one of our favorite RCL ships .

Thank you Eileen, I made a mistake, the ship is of course the Jewel of the Seas, you obvious saw the mistake and realised it was to the Baltics Did you do a lot of ports yourself or did you do the organised trips ? We are not going to Russia - Norway,Denmark Holland,France, Germany, Brussells, Ireland ! We have already booked for Paris Is this the one you did? Thanks for taking time to repl.

Yes there's a station right in the port itself near the cruise terminal.

We went on the Jewel Baltic cruise...Oslo,Stockholm,Copenhagen,Helsinki,Tallin,St.Petersburg a few weeks ago.weather was typical UK summer,some days wet,some days dry but generally warm.The ship is extremely good....you will love it.As other contributors have said,the station is within yards of the dock and everything is most efficient.Did a very similar cruise last year on the Constellation in September,weather was excellent,even walking the glacier trip from Geiranger only needed light clothing.It will be broadly the same weather as here...who knows ?

The train stops right alongside the port ocean terminal buildings. At that time in September the weather will be very warm so you will only need summer clothes and perhaps a light jacket or cardigan for evenings and night time on deck. Past experience trained us to always take a wet weather cagoule with us in case of an unexpected shower but it can also come in handy if you are in a chilly wind on deck at times.

Harwich must be the easiest port of departure in the uk straight off the train into the departure lounge. we have just returned off the "jewel" .. august 29th 2007.. the weather was similar to the uk rain @ showers and sun... wear what you would in u.

My USA Trip Part 2 Bellingham

By Collette Apak

After an extremely long day travelling and full of lovely seafood from our meal we arrived in the city of Bellingham. The place certainly didn’t feel like a city and had a very New England feel to it. It’s made up of different suburbs, the most notable one being Fairhaven with it’s old world charm.Our hotel for the night was the beautiful Bellwether Hotel. We each had our own huge suite decorated in traditional style complete with everything you could want during your stay i...

MUSICAS PORTS OF CALL.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Last time I told you all about the ship so this week we will talk about the reason we actually chose this cruise, it’s itinerary. I have been to Venice a few times now but the sail away never loses it’s excitement for me. When standing on deck I still get goose bumps as this massive ship glides slowly past all the major sights of this charming city. So close you can see into windows and see the faces of the lovers sailing on the romantic Gondola rides. It is unbelievable at how c...
