Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by hughson (31 Dec 07 14:44)

So many cruises going in that area and as many different companies. Price and quality comes into it and I suggest you read the "Cruise Lines sections to get an idea of which you would like. Weather ...if you reckon on it being similar to an English summer you will probably get the general picture right and the sea conditions should be ok but you must be prepared for the possibility of storms...there were some this year but next year, who knows...other may be more specific but that's my 5p worth....Nei.

I was on a baltic cruise at the end of July this year and unfortunately the weather was like our summer here, cold and wet most days. That said the sea conditions were very calm. Two years ago i was in Copenhagen in August and it was warm and sunny most of the time with the very occasional heavy shower. I think you just have to be prepared for anything weather wise. It's certainly not the destination if sunshine and heat are going to be important to you. The scenery is great and there are many fascinating ports of call so I recommend you follow Neil's advice above about finding the cruise right for you.

The ships were always old and small, but customers loved them none the less. Well, that’s changed con...

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
