We went on a Baltic cruise about 4 years ago, and you should be covered by the ships visa in Russia, so as long as you go on their tours you will be covered. But should you wish to do your own thing you would need to apply for a visa prior to your visit.

We went on a fab Baltic cruise last September-you will love it! The cruise co will try to scaremonger you into thinking that you have to book trips with them to even get off the ship or that you will have to arrange your own Visa at great expense and hassle-rubbish! As long as your ship is in dock for 72 hours or less then you can travel with a Russian Tour company without need of a visa.You have to prove that you are booked by showing a printout of an email confirmation or a ticket. We used Alla Tours and saved $200 on the ships tours yet went to all the same places.You only pay at the end of the tour so theres no worry about being scammed-I am very suspicious and really looked into it a lot before booking! Other tours are Den Russ and Red October I think. Google them for details.Make sure you have plenty of room on your media card for photos though-there is so much to see!Have a great time.
