After our first day at sea, the first port of call on our Baltic cruise was Oslo, the capital of Norway.

Now you might remember that I’ve been to Norway before with work (you can read more about that trip in this post) and although we flew out to Oslo we didn’t actually visit the city centre.

I was excited to visit Oslo even though a few of my old colleges who lived there said it wasn’t that interesting, and that I should visit somewhere like Bergen instead. Well, I guess I’ll just have to book a Fjord cruise next time. 😉

It’s time for a brand new Travel Diary series!

This new series is going to be all about the Baltic cruise I have just returned from. I’ll be writing blog posts for each port of call but I wanted to kick off this series with a post about the cruise ship we stayed on, our itinerary and a little bit about going on a cruise from the UK, which was a whole new experience for us.

This week Tyrone and I finally booked our summer holiday!

We are going on a Baltic Cruise!

We’ll be going to Norway (Oslo), Sweden (Stockholm and Gothenburg), Finland (Helsinki), Russia (St Petersburg), Estonia (Tallinn), Gemany (possibly going on an excursion to Berlin) and Denmark (Copenhagen). I’m so excited I haven’t stopped smiling since I booked it!
