"Highlight for High School Choir"
Reviewed 16 July 2014 by Judith
Our recent 2 week tour to Europe began with a trip from Stockholm to Tallinn on the Baltic Queen and was a definite highlight for the students. A chance to recover from the international flight with a good night's rest, fun and entertainment as well as outstanding buffet meals gave us excellent value for money as well as a memorable and fun trip. Fantastic!

"Rethink all the costs"
Reviewed 02 July 2014 by Massimo
It would be good to include a light meal for people who book a cabin. Moreover, we should be able to pay for what we want at the self service restaurant and not 31€ and be able to eat when we want. Not everyone can afford to spend that much money. For a family with 4 people, it’s €31 x 4 = €124... The journey costs €205, it’s a lot in time of crisis...

The earliest mention of Stockholm in writing dates from 1252, when it was an important post in the iron trade from the mines in Bergslagen. The first part of the name — stock — means log, while the last part — holm — means islet or small island. The full origin of the name is disputed. The city is said to have been founded by Birger Jarl in order to protect Sweden from invasion from the sea by foreign navies and to stop pillage of the cities such as Sigtuna on Lake Mälaren. The first building at Stockholm was a fortification for the purpose of controlling the traffic between the Baltic Sea and Mälaren. Under the leadership of Magnus Ladulås Stockholm developed into an important trade city in the following decades, advanced through relations with Lübeck of the Hansa league. In 1270 Stockholm appears in historical documents as a city and in 1289 it was described as the most populated city in the Swedish region.
Tallinn is the capital city and main seaport of Estonia. It is located on Estonia's north coast to the Baltic Sea. It has been shaped by nearly a millennium of outside influence. Its name, derived from taani linnus , meaning "Danish Fort", is a reminder of the fact that the city was founded by the Danes at the beginning of the thirteenth century, and since that time political control has nearly always been in the hands of foreigners - Germans, Swedes and Russians. The Germans have undoubtedly had the most lasting influence on the city; Tallinn was one of the leading cities of the Hanseatic League, the German-dominated association of Baltic trading cities, and for centuries it was known to the outside world by its German name, Reval. Even when Estonia was ruled by the kings of Sweden or the tsars of Russia, the city's public life was controlled by the German nobility, and its commerce run by German merchants.
