Azamara Journey Cruise Review by jjo96
- Sail Date: August 2017
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Club Deluxe Veranda Stateroom
Because we wanted to see as much as we could with as little hassle as possible, I found out that Azamara has a private tour section. We worked with Zsofia Sarkadi and she provided us with a 3 day tour. It was a fantastic experience.
The tour company that Azamara use was first rate. Our guide, Ludmilla Stepanov was as good as they come. She is an English teacher so language was no problem. During the tour, our driver would drop us near the entrance and when we finished that tour, he was always right there.
We visited all the places you read about, and a bonus was a canal tour. Again this tour was conducted in English by a young lady that studies English at the University.
If you would like to see St Petersburg, I highly recommend this way. It is slightly higher than the larger shore excursions, but so pleasant.
The Journey's best feature is their crew. They are very friendly, and after the first day, usually know your name and your preferences.
The small ship let us dock right near the town center at most of the stops, so you could just walk off and see the town.

As with most cruise ships, the shower was small, but you got used to it

HelsinkiSince we docked right in town, the churches were very close to tour, and the outdoor market was right in front of the ship.View All 840 Helsinki Cruise Port Reviews
At the Lutheran Church we found a noon organ recital on their wonderful pipe organ, and then as we wandered the streets, we found a bandstand with the local Rotary Club orchestra playing an afternoon concert.

When the ship was sailing, the local high school marching band came out for a send off. This was a very nice touch.

TallinnA short bus ride (provided) from the dock to the old town area. Once there, it is very interesting to climb to the top of the town and view the church there, then make your way through the shops and restaurants down the hill.View All 1,006 Tallinn Cruise Port Reviews
