Genealogy cruises are becoming as popular as conferences and for good reasons: these ARE genealogy conferences with excellent tours, sightseeing and food thrown in. The folks who produce Legacy Family Tree have been in the genealogy cruise business for years. Now they are expanding their horizons and are planning a cruise of the Baltic capitals. Here is the announcement:
Join us on a fun and educational 12 day European genealogy cruise of the Baltic Capitals on the luxurious Norwegian Cruise Lines Jewel Ship. You will meet and learn from genealogy experts. You can enjoy the cruise even if you aren't a Legacy Family Tree user.
The Itinerary - Jul 16-28, 2008
The 5th Annual Legacy Genealogy Cruise will leave London, England and will sail to Copenhagen, Denmark; Berlin, Germany; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; Tallinn, Estonia; Stockholm, Sweden; and back to London.
Discover the lands of kings and tsars all the way up to the Vikings. An area rich in folklore and fairy tales, you'll be transported back to the time of the original oceangoing explorers. Naturally, there are ancient cities, castles, museums and cobblestone streets at every turn. But, to the trained eye, that patisserie on the corner is to die for. And the boutiques down the street are waiting to be discovered.
Enjoy exclusive Freestyle Cruising; it's about dining your way. Norwegian has as many as 13 restaurants on board. So take your pick, you could dine in a different restaurant every night of your cruise. Just let your palate be your guide.
On the days we are at sea attend the Legacy Family Tree genealogy classes and learn the real secrets to becoming an expert with Legacy and improving the way you do your research. Go home with the knowledge and tools you need to be more successful than you ever thought possible. You will be learning directly from the experts.

Norwegian Jewel is like a giant, floating luxury resort with swimming pools, hot tubs, a health spa, casino, plus tons of other things to you can choose from to customize your vacation. And since we herald your indecisiveness, check out our 12 different restaurants, 24-hour room service or one of the 11 bars and lounges. You make the rules, ensuring you cruise the Baltic like a king.
