Estonia’s capital Tallinn was named a Top-Rated Baltic & Scandinavia Cruise Destination in Cruise Critic’s first-ever Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards. According to the Cruise Critic’s consumer feedback submitted on the Cruise Critic website over the past year the top 5 destinations of the Baltic Sea region are: 1. St. Petersburg; 2. Tallinn; 3. Stockholm; 4. Oslo; 5. Copenhagen.
According to Sirle Arro, Port of Tallinn’s Head of Marketing and Communication Department, the feedback of cruise passengers is the greatest acknowledgement for both, the city of Tallinn and the Port of Tallinn. „Tallinn’s marvellous Old Town, cozy cafes and design shops, great guides and friendly people, but also the port itself, make cruise tourists’ visit to Tallinn attractive. The positive feedback ensures us that recent investments into cruise facilities have been necessary,“ added Arro.
Visit to Tallinn was rated by 574 people, who gave an average rate of 4.4 from the maximum 5.
