    We are doing an 8 day Baltic cruise this summer. Are there and ports of call where we will need to "tender" to the shore or is the ship able to port directly at all stops.

    Hi there, Carolyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to hEAR you are headed to the Baltic with Captain Mickey this summer!  My family and I went on a Northern European itinerary two years ago and it was incredible!  We absolutely loved it and saw so many sites that I never thought I would get to see!  And being able to see so much and only unpack my suitcase once was especially nice!

    It appEARs that the Northern European voyages for Summer 2019 are seven-nights long and Summer 2020 has an 8-night itinerary.  Either way, the adventure will be MAGICal and oh so memorable!  None of the ports that you will be visiting require tendering and in fact one of the best things about the Northern European itineraries is that the city or town is right there when you disembark, which is so nice because it doesn’t require a long travel to the sights you want to see!  If I can offer up some suggestions – be sure to visit the Old Town of Tallinn within the walls.  It was such a lovely place to be and since vehicles are not permitted within the walls of the town, it was quiet and quaint and just wonderful.  In fact, if I could visit anywhere again, it would be to go back to Estonia!  Oh, and the desserts throughout the town were fantastic too!  Definitely try anything chocolate you can get your hands on…. you won’t be disappointed!  I hope you get one of the few sunny days in St. Petersburg (we did not!), but it didn’t stop us from doing it all that day!  It was by far our busiest and most exhausting day, but it was worth it!

    Wishing you the best of adventures; please come back with any other planning questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
