021 Cruising the Baltic with Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian Cruise Lines Getaway

The Chapel at Peterhof outside of St Petersburg Russia (Summer palace of Peter the Great)

Sailing past islands outside of Stockholm

Join Christy and I as we discuss her recent adults only trip to Walt Disney World. She and her husband stayed at the Swan hotel, were lucky to be at Epcot for Epcot’s 35th Celebration, and spent a fun day at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival.

We then turn our talk to my recent 9 day cruise through the Baltic aboard the Norwegian Getaway.  It was an amazing cruise, where we visited Germany, Talinn Estonia, St Petersburg Russia, Helsinki Finland, and Stockholm Sweden.  The cruise departed and returned to Copenhagen Denmark.  I share thoughts about our dining experiences, entertainment options, and the balcony cabin which we booked.  It truly was an amazing cruise.  If you have any questions about Norwegian Cruise Line, or sailing the Baltic…feel free to contact me on:
