Tallinn

Saga Sapphire blog - Captains' blogs

3rd September, 2015

We arrived this morning at 8.00am in the city of Tallinn, capital of Estonia, with its medieval buildings and winding cobbled streets. The weather was overcast and foggy to begin with but would turn into a beautiful day later on. Guests met Kayleigh in the Britannia Lounge, ready for more exciting excursions. The morning tours went on tours around the Old Town. The first two groups set off on walking tours around the Old Town of Tallinn, viewing its 13th century Gothic Domed Church, its Town Hall Square and its 15th century pharmacy. The second excursion went on a panoramic tour seeing all the main sights in and around Tallinn city centre. The final morning excursions also visited the Old Town, before heading to Saue Manor, dating back to the 18th century.

In the afternoon, several groups of guests went on an excursion visiting the Patarei prison-museum, followed by the Seaplane Harbour, one of the most unique maritime museums in Europe. All aboard time today was 7.30pm, as we set sail for Gdansk, an approximate distance of 401 nautical miles away. In the Drawing Room Team Trivia was hosted this evening by Cruise Staff Host Jay, and in the Britannia Lounge, tying in with the theme of the cruise, The Explosive Singers and Dancers took guests back to the days of Big Band and Swing, with their show ‘Let’s Swing’, featuring songs from The Rat Pack, Glenn Miller and many more. In the Drawing Room, due to unprecedented public demand, Perry Grant got everyone singing along once again, as he gave guests ‘The Perry Grant Experience’.
