Help! Baltic or Mediterranean Cruise in July with 21 month old?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I were all set to take RCCL Vision of the Seas 7 night Baltic cruise next July (Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Riga, Gdansk and Visby) with our baby, who will be 21 months old at the time. We can only travel in July and we thought that we only had about a week to be away. As it turns out, we have more time than we thought, so we can expand our cruise options to 10-11 night cruises. However, we are still limited to those that sail during the month of July. I see that Disney Cruise Line is offering a Mediterranean cruise that goes to Barcelona, Malta, Tunis (Tunisia), Rome, Naples and La Spezia (Italy), Corsica and Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France. Now we are really torn and hoping for some opinions and advice that can help us make up our minds.
As much as I love the idea of visiting the Baltic states (which we've never been to) I am concerned that the Baltic cruise might be more museum/indoor oriented, which obviously will not be great when we are toting our 21 month old along. For example, I'm pretty sure that we would be skipping a stop in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
I love the idea that Mediterranean cruise seems to be more outdoor sightseeing oriented (i.e. touring the ruins in various ports, beaches, hydrofoil to Capri, etc.), but I am worried that it will be brutally hot in July. Also, I don't think that our 21 month old will really be able to appreciate the Disney aspect of the cruise and, as crazy as this may sound, I am worried that it might be completely overwhelming to be on a boat that will have so many kids!
Any advice that you could offer to help us make up our minds would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks!
