More decisions: Going Ashore

Our floating hotel, The Nautica, will be heading into several ports along the way.

At each location we will have a chance to visit some special sites.  Sometimes, we thought we will simply walk around an ancient village and soak up the ambience.

Here's a brief overview of what we've decided --

Bruges -- we have one walking around town thru Oceania

Amsterdam -- we just need to get to town, talk to concierge after we board

Stockhom -- talk to concierge, we were there last year!

Helsinki -- we have one walking tour thru Oceania

St Pete -- we have three things thru Oceania, two on the 14th and one on the 15th

Tallinn -- we have walking tour thru Oceania, but a discovery one where we do the work without the yak yak

Klaipeda -- we will talk to concierge while aboard ship

Gdansk -- we have not decided.  Maybe an Oceania and maybe a self-guided if we can get into town.  

We'll make other decisions after we board the ship.  Oceania makes available to us a concierge who will assist with shore excursions.

It's just Decisions! Decisions! Decisions! Our heads are spinning!

Becky and I begin another exciting summer by quickly selecting another far northern adventure for 2015.

We are taking the easier way this year by having others do the cooking, the driving and much of the planning. Oceania has taken us under their wing! They will provide the best of services, the luscious food, the great accommodations, and take us to see the sights as we visit each country. Could not ask for anything more than that.

We have begun the planning, paid our dues and now are focused on what to do and much should we spend....what have we not seen.....what is a must to long can we stay in port....Never ending sorting and discussing before DECISIONS! Decisions! Decisions!
