Quite a wide ranging question. All except St Petersburg can be explored independently. Unless you speak Russian, either a ship's tour or Alla or Denrus etc would be best. Stockholm - depends where you are berthed, but could be walkable. Old town worth a visit but Vasa Museum a must. You can get lunch here without breaking the bank. Helsinki - nice city. Lovely shops including Stockmann's (Finland's Macey's). Can take a round trip on a tram. Tallin - beautiful, try to get to the old town early before the crowds. Poland good for shopping particularly glass ware. Warnemunde - not keen myself, but nice beach if the weather's good. Copenhagen - busy but worth the effort. Walkable into town along the harbour side. Harbour cruise is pleasent and informative. Bishop's Palace worth a visit. Tivoli Gardens a bit of a rip off, but you should probably go anyway. Little mermaid usually covered in Japanese tourists. Have a good holiday.

Are there any taxi's at the ports or do you have to walk if you don't go on the ships organised trips.

Normally a queue of taxis just outside the dock gates. Most cruise lines arrange a shuttle bus into town, but these days they charge anything from £2 upwards.

By Cordelia Nixon

Whilst not everyone can or wish to afford cruise lines like: Silverseas, Regent, Seabourne, Crystal Cruises, there are many of you that do. So this blog is for you! 1st Ask What Is Luxury?For me it is “a state of GREAT comfort, elegance and high quality over necessity” often considerably more in cost than “mainstream” whether the product is Chocolate, Cars, Hotels (Like the Burj in Dubai) lingerie, perfume or as in our case Cruise Ships.To some (those who have never cr...
