Subject: Scandinavia, Baltic and St. Petersburg tour
Hello Ziners,

I need your help. I have been considering a Grand Circle Travel's cruise to Scandinavia, Baltic, and St. Petersburg this August. The info about this cruise is at

The ship is Holland America's Noordam. This morning I found out, from a ship review page off quite a few negative reviews about this ship being too old, noisy, brown water, toilet overflow etc.

Does any one know of a better alternative tour to similar destinations, either by land or by sea? St. Petersburg is a must, two out of the three Scandinavia capitals (Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo) will be fine. Norwegian Fjord is not a must, it can wait till next trip.

We are looking for a guided tour package. My husband wants a low- stress vacation this time, and me too.

Thanks. Mei-Ching Massachusetts
