    How to Prepare for a Fun-Packed Short Baltic Cruises

    Short Baltic cruises are the ideal way to take a break from the stresses of everyday life. What better way to indulge in such much-needed pampering than aboard a luxury liner? Baltic cruises offer some of the best opportunities to see some of the most amazing sights in popular destinations and along the way. Short Baltic cruises from Helsinki to St Petersburg, Stockholm,Tallinn, or Stockholm are hard to beat. But the details you know before your first cruise could mean the difference between a good time and a great one!

    What to Pack for the Short Baltic Cruises

    • Clothes for Hot and Cold Weather – You never know what the temperature is going to be or the sudden changes that damp weather might bring. Pack for warm and cool weather but include a good waterproof windbreaker.
    • Bring Your Best Walking Shoes – No matter which stops you make, you will have to do some walking. If you feel the need to invest in a new pair before the cruise, make sure you break them in before you go.
    • Formal and Modest Clothing – You may be required to dress for dinner or want to make a visit to a restaurant that requires formal dress. Some tours include visits to must-see churches where long sleeves and pants are required.
    • Convert Your Money – Find out which of your stops are in countries that haven’t made the conversion to Euros. You will probably want to convert some of your money into a variety of currencies.
    • Pack Your Swimsuit – If you plan to go swimming on the cruise liner or at the beach, this is one essential you don’t want to leave behind.
    • Sunglasses – They don’t have to be your designer glasses but they should be effective at blocking out UV rays. Polarized sunglasses are a good choice. They reduce the glare off the water.
    • Hat or Cap
    • Binoculars
    • Camera with Extra Batteries

    MS Princess Anastasia

    M/S Princess Anastasia

    “We always call a ship a “she” and not without a reason.

    For she displays a well-shaped knee regardless of the season.

    She scorns the man whose heart is faint and doesn’t show him pity.

    And like a girl she deeds the paint to keep her looking pretty.


    Be firm with her and she’ll behave when skies are dark above you.

    And let her take a water wave – praise her, and she’ll love you.

    That’s why a ship must have a mate; she needs a good provider.

    A good strong arm to keep her straight, to comfort her and guide her.


    Yes ships are ladylike indeed, for take them altogether

    the ones that show a lot of speed can’t stand the roughest weather.”
