It can be pretty variable. I was in the Baltics in july and it was wet windy and barely got above 15C. However this was jut a reflection of the awful summer we and North Europe are having this year. I have been in Scandinavia at other times and it has been bright and sunny and warm. The weather can be pretty similar to the UK. My advice would be go prpepared for anything! I usually go for the layer approach - rather than take really warm clothes, i take lighter weight clothes and then wraps and cardigans that i can add if it is not as warm as I hope for. Also take a rain coat and umbrella. BBC teletext or various websites give 5 day forecast for most European major cities, so you could also check this out the day before you go when you are doing your packingHope this helps and that you are more fortunate than I was with the weather.

They're quite right take something of everything particularly as you has no flight luggage weight to worry about. It is one of the benefits of sailing out of and into the U.K. Hope you enjoy it, Neil Dow.

La Spezia ? where.

By Nicola Milligan

Mediterranean cruises are calling into several ports depending on the size of the cruise ship. So Livorno is commonly know as the port to visit Florence and Pisa. This is a big industrial port so if you have been to both of those cities before not a lot for you to do.We are now finding some ships are calling into La Spezia as an alternative. However the journey can take over two hours each way, so what else is there to do in this area of Italy.I have been recommended by a regular customer a m...

Cuba

By Steve Fuller

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
