Subject: Re: Baltic cruise
Hi Lucy:

We are leaving for a Baltic cruise with the Silversea cruise line, in a few weeks. You might want to check out their credentials from experienced cruisers on various cruise boards. This is our first cruise, but from all the research I've done, Silverseas seems to fit your criteria for excellent food, service and shore excursions. (Also - absolutely no tipping) The ships are smaller and the ratio of passengers to crew is lower than on other lines.

We will be cruising for two weeks, visiting Stockholm, Helsinki, Tallinn, Copenhagen and St. Petersburg.
