I know its early, but all of the major cruise lines are already selling their cruises for the Baltics for 2007.

Perhaps if we all posted who was going, what ship and what sailing, we can find others on our same cruise (who may not use the roll calls).

We were on Star Princess last August for the Baltic cruise out of Copenhagen. You may be interested in the review I did of this which can be found at

www.cruise.critic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=12469 (http://www.cruise.critic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=12469)

Another review, which also has some great photos, has been written by sunprincess who was on the same sailing and was a member of our Roll Call.

Am sure you will thoroughly enjoy this trip but be warned it is a very hectic itinerary - you will probably need a holiday afterwards to recover.

Good Luck with your plans.

Good idea. I thought it was a little early to start a roll call.

We are on the Star Princess sailing out of Copenhagen on 8/10. On the cruise we will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

Our first cruise was actually with Royal Caribbean on our 25th anniversary on the Mediterranean. That was supposed to be our vacation for a lifetime, but I guess this one now will be.

We have since sailed on Royal Caribbean on a Western Caribbean route and are sailing to Bermuda this summer on Norwegian. This will be our first cruise on Princess and our first time in all the ports.

Sorry you were unable to open my review. Have I think found the reason why - I inserted a dot (.) after www.cruise (http://www.cruise) which should not have been there. If you would like to try again the link should be

www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?Entry (http://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?Entry) ID=12469

Did you also find the review written by sunprincess along with the superb photos?

Good Luck with the planning of what will be a trip of a lifetime.

We are off to the Rockies for a Land Tour followed by an Alaskan cruise on Dawn Princess in two weeks - the scenery will be somewhat different to the Baltics but we are very excited to be going on this trip.

My family will be on RCI's Jewel of the Seas next June 30, 2007. I have 2 teen DD's who will each be taking a friend so we will be a party of 6. This will be our first visit to the Baltic area. I have been scouring this board for recommendations for independent tour companies. I can't believe how much wonderful information can be found here. This is a special group of people.

I'll go post in that roll call. I had considered starting one, but thought it was much too early.

We are also going on a Bermuda cruise this summer (on the Norwegian Crown). I had started a roll call for that cruise, and have had only one person reply. But, I did learn a lot from her as she has been to Bermuda several times.

For those who booked 2007 Baltic cruise on HAL prior to the end of May:

Check the HAL website for the latest pricing info. We found that the discount had increased by 5% or so. We contacted our TA, who confirmed the new price with HAL, saving us several hundred dollars. I don't know if all Baltic cruises were similarly affected, but it is certainly worth checking.

July 31st, 2006, 09:53 PM
iscreamer....this is the last sailing of the 2007 season for the Star Princess...doing the Baltics/Oslo. Then the ship moves on to do something else.
I do think there are a couple of other ships sailing in the Baltics in Aug/Sept. '07 but we are only interested in Princess.

If you decide on the Star .... join our roll call. J.

Just confirmed dates with my husband last night and he prefers I go when the kids are out of school so now I guess Sept is out. It's been so hard to make a decission and having the Star be the only Sept sail made it easier. Now I'm back to square one. Everybody should have this problem ;).

I'm still trying to decide I want to do the Baltic Cruise out of Dover with NCL on May 5,2007. My transatlantic cruise on the Dream actually arrives in Dover on the 3rd. NCL web site has the cruise for the 5th with 2 night pre-cruise listed at less than just the cruise without the pre-night and I can't figure that out. Timing is perfect but after 18 nights on the Dream do I want another 12? I was planning on touring England with a bus tour but the Baltic cruise sounds wonderfull. I am so undecided I think I may flip a coin.:rolleyes:

I am also seriously considering this Baltic cruise after the transatlantic and am thinking the same thing about so long on one ship since I have never sailed on NCL. How about you? Have you sailed them before? It would be such a convenience. And then I could splurge and come back on the QM2 and wouldn't have to fly at all. Let me know your feelings about NCL and other lines you have sailed.

We are doing the July 14th sailing of the Constellation. This is a charter (Atlantis Events) and sold out within about two weeks to their past travelers. Already booked our air using frequent flyer miles (got the flights & dates we wanted!). Now we are working on pre & post hotel stays in Copenhagen and Stockholm. After that, it is on to planning our tours in St. Peterburg.

I'll need a vacation after all the planning this is over!!!!:p

Seriously, we are very excited about this trip - all destinations we have never been to before. We were on the Infinity this past June so if the Connie is as good is that, we'll be in heaven!:D

I'm surprised no one else on this thread is on this cruise because it's already out of balcony cabins. We are really excited about doing all of these ports in a smaller ship. Isn't the port research fun for this cruise!?!

Hi. My husband and I are taking our 15 year old son and 13 year old daughter (who turns 14 in Corfu!) on HAL Rotterdam's 39 day cruise from 10th August - 18th September. We are travelling from Australia with a week of extra travelling either side of the cruise. It is an exciting adventure that we just can't wait for. Our children were the only children on board Coral Princess Panama Canal in September 2005 so we are keen to hear of any other families with teens who will be on our cruise.

Great to find someone on my cruise!
Sorry its taken me a over 2 months now to get back to you from your posting!

You're in Rochester huh? The law firm I work for has headquarters there!

Anyhow, airfare from Los Angeles is looking horrible. I am doing it on my own, but have yet to book anything yet. I am holding out hope that it will drop a little.

I am staying in CPH 1 night pre-cruise and 1 night post-cruise. I've gotten the pre-cruise hotel through Priceline. It's the Copenhagen Marriott. Still working on the post cruise.

I booked Alla tours in St Pete. Still haven't decided on the other ports. Will probably do most of them on my own!

Wife and I are sailing on the OPERA, departing from Copenhagen on 12 May 07. Any recommendations as to where to stay the night before? We'd like a hotel that's close to the pier/port. Never been to Copenhagen before, so any advice/recommendations would be welcome.

Crystal 7219 from Stockholm to Copenhagen July 29. Anyone on this cruise?

The wife and I are sailing on the Veendam on June 23, 2007. The HAL website shows this cruise almost completely sold out, with only one category of cabins still available. In spite of this, there are only 8 of us registered on the roll call. I am thinking the boat is going to full of "nearly dead" people yet to discover the Internet.

Dorel,

I agree with you. My husband and I are on the Celebrity Century August 2nd and all the suites are sold out and most of the other categories are also sold out. We have heard from 6 other people in our Roll Call. Maybe they are related to the Internet-challenged on your cruise.

There must be something about the Baltic cruise. I am having the same problem - little response - to the roll call for the Crystal 7219 Baltic cruise. There are only eight of us so far and I know it is almost sold out in all categories.

Steve!

Great to find someone on my cruise!
Sorry its taken me a over 2 months now to get back to you from your posting!

You're in Rochester huh? The law firm I work for has headquarters there!

Anyhow, airfare from Los Angeles is looking horrible. I am doing it on my own, but have yet to book anything yet. I am holding out hope that it will drop a little.

I am staying in CPH 1 night pre-cruise and 1 night post-cruise. I've gotten the pre-cruise hotel through Priceline. It's the Copenhagen Marriott. Still working on the post cruise.

I booked Alla tours in St Pete. Still haven't decided on the other ports. Will probably do most of them on my own!

We have a group booked on this same cruise. We bought our airfare AGES ago on orbitz...they have changed our flights about 3 times since then...probably because the rates are so much higher. We cannot fly in UNTIL the day the cruise is leaving...fingers crossed that we get there in time.

So far, we arrive at 7:30am - any ideas on what to do until we can board? There will be 4 of us.

Welcome to the Rotterdam cruise of the Baltics! And congratulations on your upcoming marriage. Hope you have a fantastic honeymoon aboard.

Do go over the the Roll Call Board>Holland America>Rotterdam>Best of the Baltics on May 30th. We have a great roll call started there---with about 20-30 CC's signed on.

Hope to meet you on board!

In spite of this, there are only 8 of us registered on the roll call. I am thinking the boat is going to full of "nearly dead" people yet to discover the Internet.

All of a sudden, according to the HAL website, the cruise is no longer sold out. Cabins are again available in practically all categories. I am beginning to suspect that periodically pretending that all the cabins are sold out is just a marketing ploy by HAL. So it is possible that there are only 8 of us signed up for this cruise.

I'll be on the NCL Dream on Saturday 5th (2 days to go!). It's our first cruise and is in fact our honeymoon, having got married last Saturday.

Most cruises seem to offer a few freebies for honeymooners, but NCL seems to charge, bit miffed at that!

First cruise for us, so we've been a bit naive and booked ship excursions for all destinations apart from Copenhagen which we know quite well anyway.

Hi, Napunani!!

Hoping you check in on the boards before leaving for the cruise. Do switch over to the ROLL CALL Board and follow the links---Holland America---Rotterdam---Best of the Baltics, May 30. We'd love for you to sign in there so everyone can get to "meet" you! We really do want to meet you and hope you will come to our "Meet and Greet" on the first sea day (May 31st, first morning out) from 10:00 to 11:00 in the Explorers Lounge on the Upper Promenade Deck by the Art Gallery.

We have a great bunch of CC posters (about 30-35) who are active on the board and all looking forward to meeting each other on the 31st.

Hi Jane
We're on this sailing too! I haven't found much mention of it and have opened a thread in the Roll Call part of this site, so far with one reply. I'm busy looking into the private shore excursions in St Petersburg. See you in August!

Nope, this year - booked it January 2006!

It's getting close now, we're thinking of taking ship excursions in St Petersburg - we really need to get on and sort it out soon.

Where are you travelling from?

I'm a primary school teacher and I'm busy writing 29 reports - due in tomorrow so in the end I just went on line and booked the first couple of ship tours that took my fancy.
Day 1 - walking tour with tram ride.
Day 2 - river tour.
I've always been of the mindset that one doesn't need to see everything on a ticklist when visiting a new place - this is just a flavour. I also like to leave the idea in my mind that there's something else to see so I might returnone day.

Hi Jane,
My husband and I and another couple will also be on the Jewel on August 17th. Do you know anyone who would want to put together a private tour in St. Petersburg. We were thinking of taking the Denrus Value Tour but would still prefer a group of 8-10. We are already four. I am new to this site and hope that I know how to retrieve your message. My "E" is clwnstn2@comcast.net if you wish to write me directly. We have been on many cruises but I am really excited about this one. We will be staying in the Kensington area of London prior to our trip. Can you recommend any good restaurants? We visited London many years ago but our friends have not been there. We loved it.

Sorry to have overlooked your reply and not answered...I am an English Jane too (second name though). My husband and myself will be travelling from the Bath area, and plan to stay overnight near Harwich at a B&B where we can leave the car for the duration (£2 per night). Look forward to meeting up in August
