We went to the Baltic last year on Adonia. The big advantage of a small ship was that we went through the Kiel Canal both ways and in St Petersburg we moored on the river not far from the Hermitage whereas larger ships have to go to the new cruise terminal which is well outside the city.
That sounds good - St Peterburg is the big attraction for me but I think it would be interesting to go through the Kiel Canal - was having a look on googlemaps at it. the cruise I am looking at goes through one way only (on the way back).
