In July (2011), Ann/Court, Angie/Mel, and David and I met in Dover, England to begin a 14-day cruise through 10 countries in Northern Europe. We were busy bees during those 14 days since there was only one "sea day" on the entire trip. We visited 11 ports, 10 of which were one-day stops. Oceania, our cruise company, considered St. Petersburg the highlight of the trip and scheduled 3 days/2 nights there. In total, we sailed 1815 nautical miles.
