Cruise ship encounters in the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Finland

The Cruise industry has become very popular and the market in Europe is growing. The most popular regions are the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. During our cruise in the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Finland, we encountered 15 different cruise companies. We didn’t expect that there would be so many in this region. The most famous ones were Aida, Celebrity, Costa, Holland America, MSC, Norwegian and P&O.

De Cruise sector is zeer populair geworden en de markt in Europa is aan het groeien. De meest populaire regio’s zijn de Middellandse zee en Noord Europa. Gedurende onze Cruise in de Baltische Zee en de Golf van Finland, kwamen we 15 verschillende Cruise maatschappijen tegen. We hadden niet verwacht dat het er zo veel gingen zijn. De meest beroemde maatschappijen waren Aida, Celebrity, Costa, Holland America, MSC, Norwegian en P&O..

  1. Er zitten prachtige cruise boten bij, reizende hotels! Maar Costa is dat niet die gekanteld zijn? Ik denk niet dat ze mij daar opkrijgen. Voor de rest lijkt het allemaal heel veilig en mooi te zijn.

  5. Quite a variety of shapes and sizes, each cruise ship appears unique. You have a wonderful collection of photos - the first on dusk looks beautiful. The P&O Acadia photo looks as if it's resting on the grass - nice work.

  7. A great series of pics. It sure is a booming industry. We have been on Holland America, which was quite nice but we are not rapt in cruising except on small boats and river cruises.

  12. that is one thing i've never wanted to do - being trapped on a floating city with all those people would drive me crazy, i think. i like my solitude and country space too much. :)

  13. What an amazing array of ships! Cruising is such a great bargain, it is no wonder it is so popular. Sometimes wonder how they can provide such great food and service that they do for the small amount.
