Baltic Cruises from Stockholm to Helsinki & St Petersburg
If you are looking for something a little different in your next cruise, you should be considering cruises from Stockholm. Stockholm, the capitol of Sweden, is a very beautiful and refined city in Northern Europe, built on 14 islands, linked by no less than 57 bridges. As you can imagine, cruising out of the port of Stockholm is breathtakingly beautiful, and a very fitting start to your cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki and other Baltic ports. If you are interested in seeing a little glimpse of Russia, you can cruise from Stockholm to St. Peterburg, the Venice of the North.
Cruise Lines offering cruises from Stockholm
Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Crystal Cruises offer a choice of Baltic cruises from Stockholm. They have fairly similar itineraries, and your choice will depend mainly on how much you can afford to spend on your cruise and whether you have 7 or 10 nights available. Royal Caribbean are a lot more affordable, but Crystal Cruises offer total pampered all-suite luxury and are fully inclusive of all drinks, so you need to bear that in mind when making your decision.
