We're thinking of doing a cruise to Scandinavia as we fancy going to all of the capital cities and a cruise seems to be the easiest way of doing it in one go. We know absolutely nothing about cruises, so any advice would be much appreciated.
My first question is about excursions.
This is probably a stupid question, but i assume you can still get ashore at each port without booking the ship's excursions? We prefer to explore on our own and wouldn't want to have to go with a large group on a set itinerary.
