On the island, you can go on a train ride (for an extra fee of EEK 50) or enjoy the beautiful forests and sandy beaches.

I recently returned from an 11 days cruise on the Vision of the Seas. This cruise embarked in Stockholm, Sweden ....we toured Helsinki, Finland, St. Petersburg, Russia (3 days), Tallinn, Estonia, Visby, Sweden, Port of Rostock for Berlin, Germany, and Copenhagen, Denmark. Overall, this was a nice cruise. The ship is scheduled for a month in dry dock next month for refurbishing. While it was clean and service generally good, the ship is due for a fix up. My understanding is the bath rooms, linens, TV's, carpet, etc are all being replaced and a specialty restaurant is being added.
As far as the ports, they were all very good and the tours offered by the cruise line were good. Spending three full days in St. Petersburg allowed us to see much more. Security was very tight, requiring us to go through passport checks daily to reach our tours, and again upon return from the tours to get back to ship. The Hermitage was amazing and being on an early tour with cruise line allowed us early entry. A must!! Catherine's Palace was a "must see"....
I very much liked Tallinn, Estonia and Visby, Sweden. Much smaller villages with medieval touches, charming scenery. We had great weather for our entire time. Berlin was a 2.5 hour coach ride from the port where we docked so it made for a 12 hour tour day. It was worth the time to see and tour sites in Berlin. My sense is I would not return to this area, so I wanted to see as much as I could.
Copenhagen was a disappointment for me, but I did not take an organized tour. It was such a large city and so much road construction that had I to do it over, I would have booked a tour. We did a hop on/ hop off city bus tour which was OK. Don't bother to see the "mermaid" statue... it's way overrated.

We (young couple) took the Tallink 40hour cruise from Stockholm to Tallinn recently and really enjoyed the experience. I had heard that it was just for people who wanted to get super drunk for two days and not pleasant at all. However, I would say that you can do what ever you feel like on this cruise, even if that's get super drunk or just relax on your own!
The ship was great, we had an amazing meal in The Baltic Queen the first night and a meal so bad we had to send it back in The Grill House the second night. We actually ended up leaving and going back to the Baltic Queen where we were really happy with the service and food.
There is great shopping, a sauna, relax area, a children's area and of course bars and a nightclub, with lots of other entertainment. There was not enough time to do it all! And in the middle there was the beautiful city of Tallinn (but that's for another review) to visit. The rooms are fine, nice shower, comfortable (but tiny!) beds and a huge round window. Great experience all round. Would definitely tell a friend about them!
