Baltic Cruise Vacation 2013 Home Page.

Welcome to the home page for my Baltic cruise of May 2013, this time round trip from Southampton, England to Southampton, England. This cruise took place between April 30th and May 15th. The ports of call on this trip were Kristiansand, Norway; Copenhagen, Denmark; Warnemunde, Germany; Tallinn, Estonia; St Peterburg, Russia (for two days); Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden returning to Southampton.

Here is a map showing this cruise:

This site is designed a bit differently than most of the previous ones. During these more recent trips I have been creating emails with fairly large Microsoft Word documents attached to them describing the cruise and sending them to selected people as the trip progresses. The pages of this site are based on the origional Microsoft Word documents created for and attached to those emails. These documents have been converted into the web pages that follow. Those of you that received the emails will likely recognize them. As a result of this there probably are a few less pictures than I might have used if I had created the web pages from scratch. I think that these pages will still provide a very adaquate feel of the trip as I experienced it even though there may be a few less pictures.

Below is a calendar that lists the progression of the trip day by day with links to the appropriate section of the appropriate document/page that talks about that day.

As is usual I wish to thank the various people that provided any services to me before, during and after this trip. This includes British Airways, Cunard's staff in Southampton and on the Queen Elizabeth throughout the cruise and all of the shore excursion people in all of the ports of call. Again special thanks to Colleen Renton of Goliger's Travel in Brantford for her always valuable assistance in planning this and every trip I do!!!
