4.0 out of 5 stars Fodors European POrts of Call
This book met my expectations but as usual with Fodors it is written from an American point of view so many hints and tips are not relevant for the European audience. Some good info and maps.

We used this book on a Baltic cruise. While the descriptions of each port were adequate, the provided maps were not. In fairness to the author, it is difficult to forecast exactly where a particular cruise ship is going to moor. What you can do and how you get to the places that matter depend so much on how close you are to the town centre. Good quality maps alongside...

4.0 out of 5 stars European Ports, 13 July 2010

Very wide ranging. The information on each port is concise but very useful.

I've just used it for several Baltic ports. The best tip was that at St Petersburg it is possible to go ashore without a visa if you have prebooked a trip through an approved Russian agency. We did that online and came off much better than other passengers. The most disappointing feature was that for Warnemunde the whole entry is about Berlin. As we had been there before we wanted to explore Warnemunde and Rostock but there was nothing about them.

By itself this book is not really enough to arrange your own shore excursions but it provides a good starting point and with a little additional research you can have a good time in these ports.

What you can do and how you get to the places that matter depend so much on how close you are to the town centre. Good quality maps alongside your cruise providers trips would be greatly helpful. Having said that, the book was useful to have along.
