Baltic cruises

5 posts in this topic

As there are shuttle buses into many of the Baltic cities, visited by P&O, is it neccessary to go on excursions or can you see the sights on your own? Feeling lazy and do not fancy early starts.

Hi  You cannot go ashore independently in St Petersburg, as well as the shore's excursions many independent operators advertise on the web.  In most other cities HOHO 's operate from the cruise terminals which will transport you around most of the "must see" sites.  Tallinn is best seen on foot, either walk from the cruise terminal or take the shuttle bus to the medieval walls.

Not been to Baltic for 4 years (on Azura) but unless things have changed we had free shuttles in all the ports (Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki), as already said, Tallinn is easily walkable from the terminal, and St Petersburg is best visited by ship's excursions, unless you know what you are doing.

If your ship stays overnight in st Petersburg look to see if they offer a two day option of a small group tour. We did this from P &O and there were around 12 of us in a mini bus with driver and guide. Early starts but we got to see all the main sites, first into the Hermitage in the morning avoiding the crowds. Couldn't fault it although it insnt the cheapest option, but far better than on a 52 seater coach with the crowds, same rule applies almost everywhere small group tours are excellent.
