European Cruise Tips
The prime Northern Europe and Baltic cruising season was once limited to July and August, but many voyages now begin in May and run through September, with a select few being offered year round. Temperatures may be a bit cooler towards the beginning and end of the cruising season, but you'll avoid thick summer crowds and higher prices. The month of June is one of the best times to visit Russia, as St. Petersburg celebrates "White Nights", or near-endless daylight.
Currency can be an issue on a cruise through Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea, as you could be dealing with the British pound, the Danish kroner, the Russian ruble, the Norwegian krone, and the euro. To avoid the hassle of constantly exchanging currency, use a pre-loaded debit card or a credit card without international fees instead. Bring sensible shoes and thick socks, as cobblestoned streets are common throughout Europe. Finally, bring layers for the weather, as the temperatures can be highly varied even in the prime summer months.
