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.
