You are in for a treat,we have done this trip twice and every stop was a memorable one Stockholm-vasa museum and main shopping area a must,helsinki take the trip round the city too much to see in too little time so this is a must.berlin-6 hour round trip by train but well worth it to see the sights,copenhagen-tivoli gardens -brilliant only st petersburg was a dissapointment as docked to far from the centre and you can only get off on a tour if booked with the cruise ship not really worth the bother,did not feel safe there either.we were lucky enough to sail thru the keil canal but as the jewel has replaced the dream it is to big to sail down the canal but other way should just be as good. estonia-stunning architecture have a great time.

In the luxury cruise world there are a few cruise lines you would I am sure, remember. The likes of Regent, Crystal, Viking, Hapag Lloyd, Seabourn, Oceania, and Silverseas.
