Aug 1, Baltic cruise on Caribbean Princess

Any suggestions for excursions? What about tours other than with the cruiseline?

Did the Baltic cruise last year on Celebrity. We used ALLA tours in St. Petersburg and Berlin. They were great to deal with and very professional in all aspects. To be fair, there are a number of companies that receive excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, including ALLA and SPB.
It's a great cruise; we enjoyed all the different countries, white nights etc. Hope you do too.

What ports are you visiting?
We loved our two days with Red October in St Petersburg.

The places Abram suggested are easily self doable.

You can take a cab to the VASA which may be very close to the dock depending on which dock your ship uses. behind the VASA is a water taxi which takes you to Gamla Stan. Very easy.

Your dock in Tallinn drops you right at the old town
