Baltic - how time changes work AND seasickness

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am looking at Brilliance of the Seas and Vision of the Seas for late August/early September. Both cruises start in Copenhagen, a day at sea, Tallinn, St Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, day at sea, return to Copenhagen.
Between Copenhagen and St Petersburg there appears to be three hour time change.
Does anyone have experience with this? Do the ships operate on real time, or ship's time? Coming from LA, moving ahead three more hours sounds deadly to try to get a 7 a.m. tour in St Petersburg.
Also, have not seen much about chances of stormy seas/seasickness in Baltic area. I have been fine in Alaska, Mexican Riviera and Caribbean, except for a few times there were storms. (But i take meclezine prophylactically, use sea bands, eat ginger, etc. since i am very prone to seasickness.) What's the conventional wisdom about the Baltic?
Thanks so much for any input on either topic!
