Visby, Gotland in the Baltic Sea on a Baltic Cruise for Doris Visits

At one time the most important Hanseatic town, full of churches which all bar one stand as incredible ruins in the ‘Pearl of the Baltic’.  The Swedish cruise port is on the west coast of the Baltics largest island, Gotland, and as such is not a Euro area. Sweden is one of the three EU countries not to adopt the currency. From stone age dwellings to being a Viking trading post, it developed into the Baltics main Hanseatic centre between the 12th and 14th centuries with huge interest from German merchants. It is no surprise that there are over 200 warehouses and wealthy merchants stone dwellings from that time remain within its 3,040meter long medieval wall. The World Heritage site is the best-preserved fortified commercial settlement in northern Europe and you can walk the town and alleyways and finish by relaxing in the Botanical Gardens. With vibrant squares, German beer cellars and lively modern caf├ęs you can grab wi-fi in between visiting the many museums.

Essentials – cruise travel labels and our cruise crime novels – oh, and the seasickness bands.

The Port guides here on Doris Visits are a great way to remember your cruise and share with your friends. The crime novels are a whole new experience. You may not have been to the ports in the novels, you certainly won’t have been to the parts of the ship they use. All the cruise crime novels will make you feel like you are in the adventure and on the ship – dodge the bullets and stay out of the romance. Ship and cruise accurate, the novels are a great way for new cruisers to discover a ship too. Please share the Amazon link. .CRUISE SHIP HEIST

QUESTION: If I travel and I am more than 24 weeks pregnant am I technically un-insured and liable for all the bills?

ANSWER: Check with your insurance company and lawyer before you travel, but it appears all the companies say no travel.

 Enjoy Cruising, and please share our great Port films on our Doris Visits Youtube Channel
