    Just like Shipmaven said.
    But you never know with our weather. We have our good summers and we have our bad ones.
    We have had few years ago two summers in row with perfect weather between May and September with almost no rain, just sun day after day which I like. Then we have had some really lousy summers almost throughout the whole summer so it is a little bit of gambling when talking of the weather.
    If I could choose a cruise anytime during our summer months I would choose a cruise that take place between mid July and mid August.

    Thnx Christoffer - that is perfect timing because that is when we want to come to that area. We are looking at itineraries, and are doing this in either 2010 or 2011...haven't decided yet. 2011 is our 30th wedding anniversary...so maybe then, but I am impatient and want to do it 2010!! :lol

    Corky,
    We went on the Scandinavia & Russia w/Oslo Roundtrip Copenhagen 10 Days cruise Aug 08 and we had wonderful weather. Loved every minute, and if you have any questions, just PM me. We were on the Crown Princess:thumb, it was fantastic!

    Great itineraries! How about one in 2010 and one in 2011? We're thinking similar itineraries for mid-July/mid-August 2011.

    We did the Baltic Cruise July 14th-22nd and the weather was great. Keep in mind that the sun almost never sets when you are that far north in the baltic. We saw many of the people sunbathing during this time of year. We had no rain and very calm seas.

    Cindy - I will PM you once we get it banged out. It will be awhile though as we are just in the planning stages and need to spend more time picking the Best one! :thumb Thanks so much for your offer.

    Thnx, Nieciez!

    Lisa63 - let's stay in touch for the 2011 time frame, maybe we'll end up on the same ship. I think for 2010 my DH wants to go Land Based somewhere, like Costa Rica... but, we've just this weekend decided we are going to Europe for a cruise...so we have to pow-wow some more about it.
