Description

Copenhagen had its sights on greatness since the 11th century when it first became a settlement. The harbor provided endless opportunities for trade, warfare and travel with countless reconstructions as new rulers and sieges took place. This once small fishing village has since erupted into a home for over a million Danes and is often ranked towards the top of the most appealing cities to live in.

At the Amalienborg Palace you will see Copenhagen's version of the Buckingham Palace. Some may tell you it is 4 times better as it is made up of four identical buildings, all considered palaces within Amalienborg Palace itself. In the center of the complex is a famous statue of King Frederik V which has been standing since 1771. Just across the water you can spot the Copenhagen Opera house, one of the most expensive ever built.

On your way to the modern town center you will have an outside stop of the Rosenborg Castle. This was the summerhouse and creation of King Christian IV who stayed here while living in Copenhagen, it was also the site of his death. Christian IV was the longest-reigning monarch of Denmark who stood in power for 59 years. This castle's greatness matches the length of his reign!

As you pass through the highlights of the city center you will approach the impressive Christianborg Palace where you will have an inside visit. This palace is one of a kind as it is the only one in the world that houses all three of the governments supreme powers; Executive, Legislative and Judicial. A guided tour will bring you to some of the most impressive rooms on the property.

Your day will wrap up in Nyhavn which is best known as "The New Harbor". This area's past is filled with sailor stories and a walk along the waterfront offers numerous cafes and uniquely designed buildings. Here you will have free time to explore on your own.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
