Cooke - Answered a Question by FISHER (27 Jan 09 13:00)

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.

Royal Princess

By Emily Watts

 Last week I was lucky enough to experience Royal Princess which was also my first time on a Princess ship. It was everything I expected and more. as soon as we got on board I was impressed with the decor and the grandness, it really is a beautiful ship. Our cabin was located on Baja deck B215 which had a balcony and for two sharing it is very spacious. Princess prides themselves on the beds and it was probably one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept on. After embarkation, we...

Last week I sailed on the newly rejuvenated Independence of the Seas. As I’ve mentioned before she’s always been one of my favourite ships, but it’s been a few years since I was last onboard so I was keen to see the changesI was onboard for 2 mini cruises back to back so I’ll be splitting my review over a couple of blogsDay 1Arrived at the port at 12:00 and as a platinum member, I had priority check-in, so thankfully I skipped the huge queue and was onboard within 30 m...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...
