Have you thought about a cruise visit to the Baltics, territories that gained independence from the Russian Empire in the wake of World War I: primarily the contiguous trio of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (from north to south). One of our clients offered this very interesting diary of a summer trip and we thought you might enjoy reading it.
Saturday afternoon – after a refreshing walk thru the city and a swim at the hotel, time to depart for the ship – what a interesting drive thru the city: 5-story apartments, little outdoor cafés, tons of little shops and within 20 minutes we are at the Pier. The embarkation was perhaps the easiest we have ever encountered. A little tent under the sun with give Regent employees earnestly waiting to check us in. Ten stairs to the ship and we are onboard a most stunning vessel. Our cabin is impressive from the marble tub to the 200 square foot deck overlooking the harbor. Of course the ship offers lunch but we decide to wait for 6 p.m. cocktails and then dinner. Beef Wellington, lobster – almost anything you could ask for, including an extensive spa menu.
