Aug 27, 2018 - DAY 11 - Warnemunde

Day 11 - Warnemunde, Germany After sailing westwards keeping fairly close to the Finnish and Swedish coastlines yesterday, we headed south overnight, and at 7am this morning we docked in Warnemunde in north Germany. Most of today's excursions and recommended visits ignored Warnemunde, concentrating instead on more historic and picturesque places such as Rostock and Lubeck. We hadn't booked any of these, so at 10.30am we met up with Ros and Graham (who yesterday booked their next cruise!) and headed off to explore the delights of Warnemunde...

Our Big Trip

May 25, 2018 - Friday

Dear all, Well we left Warnemundi last night and sailing up to Tallin today, arriving early tomorrow morning. Our room is between the two lifeboats, second row down below the blue bit. The blue bit is a glass sea walk out over the ship, looking down into the sea below. Will try for some photos of it. The weather has turned cold today. There is quite an icy wind blowing. Have done some washing and got it hanging on our verandah but think it will be frozen stiff and not dry well. Paul has returned from his talk on the port so we are off for...

Our Big Trip

Aug 9, 2016 - Warnemunde, Germany

We docked in Warnemunde, Germany at 6:00 AM. Of the 11 tours available onboard 7 of them required a total time of 11.75 hours to go to Berlin and return. We decided to do our own tour to Schwerin to see the Schwerin Castle. Mark and Deb had checked out the train schedules and the train station was an easy walk from the Ship. We managed to get there and back without any problems. Some of the official tours, however, were not so lucky. All the Berlin tours were scheduled to start at 6:00 or so but there was a problem getting Immigration...

Cruise of the Baltic

May 30, 2016 - Berlin in Four Hours

Monday May 30 We arrived at a railway station (Ostbahnhof) in Berlin and were given a bus tour which we, or at least Heather, was not expecting. As an introduction to the tour, our guide (Jens) explained that when the Berlin Wall was in place, the total distance it travelled around the city was 155 kilometres. Our trip started in old East Berlin. With exception of several display sites, the wall was torn down in 1989. Throughout the city, the route of the wall (where it is not still presented) is indicated in the sidewalks or streets by a...

May 15, 2013 - taboo

When we say we want to see the world, that’s hardly an exaggeration, and when there’s a place that we are forbidden to see, we want to go there even more. Cuba is still on that list, but we have finally caught a glimpse of what used to be East Germany. We have vivid memories from 1979, when we took the train through the GDR (East Germany) to Berlin, stopping along the way for a frightening passport examination from the officials from the East. We wandered around East Berlin on foot, amazed and appalled by the fact that so little had been...
