Scandinavian Cruise 2014

I am back from my cruise! It was amazing, loved the Scandinavian countries.
Our itinerary was:
May 20-24 th, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Board the cruise ship May 24th cruise until May 31st. 7 days.
We saw Stockholm Sweden, Tallinn Estonia, St. Petersburg Russia, Helsinki Finland.

Royal Caribbean, Legend of the Seas Ship.

This was a smaller ship, perfect for first time cruisers, for us now being 4th time cruisers we need a bigger ship, we get bored on the smaller ones now! But I highly recommend start out small so it is not overwhelming. Work your way up to the big ships!

This was a wonderful trip, Copenhagen was fabulous, you walk every where, shopping, food.
We stayed at The First Hotel Mayfair (The Clarion Mayfair when we booked it)
Wonderful place in walking distance to all the attractions. They fed us a wonderful buffet breakfast each morning.
Had a bar area and seating areas to relax after a long day of sightseeing, I highly recommend this hotel!

I will post for a couple days to show what we saw each day....but here are some pictures to start you off with:
Our hotel, bikes are the preferred transportation mode in Copenhagen they are everywhere!

Tivioli Gardens, must see when in Copenhagen!

Beautiful architecture everywhere!

The Viking Lounge on the ship!

A ship in Tivoli Gardens.

Ten days of traveling, I am exhausted but Happy I got to see some of the most beautiful countries in the world!
