You need a good camera for taking photos of palaces inside and out, church's that are dark but may not allow flash, anti glare for museums, with glass covered items.

1) congrats you will enjoy it, do many photo opportunities for you. 2) I don't think I need to ask, But I look forward to seeing your fantastic photos from it. Words of advice, try to get a verandah there are sights from 6 am to 11 pm, and no people in front of you, also book private tours in advance you will save a lot. Sent from my iPad using DISBoards

PS If not seen before I have a link below to my cruise photos, navigators, and a blog from my Alaska cruise.

I was thinking about getting one for the Baltic trip for close ups from ship to shore. I do not know if my 70-200 will be enough even with the teleconverter it only goes out to 280mm, so that is why I am thinking about the 100-400mm canon lens, but wonder if I will use it a lot on this trip.

I saw you wanted to consider a new camera and misread it sorry.

Well going in and out of Stockholm is very pretty past many islands , Denmark if we go under the bridge it's nice, but a lot of the Baltic and sea days there isn't anything to view, ie St Petes harbour is out of town in a commercial port and you can't see anything bar other ships.

That is exactly what I needed to know, thanks so much for your input, the way the cruise path looked it was close to the shore line like the Alaskan cruise we took, but if all you can see is the sea all the time there would be no use for the new lens. Thanks for your help, that lens cost some money. I am sorry for the misunderstanding, it was just the lens I was looking at for my Canon 60D. Each lens that I have has is own purpose 70-200 lens, soccer and far away close ups, 24-70mm lens, close up portrait pics, 50mm close up portrait pics 10-22 catch the whole wide picture.

No it's not like Alaska your out a sea a lot you see the odd old container ship, the water is actually very dirty in places, entering and leaving Stockholm is a good bit, but do not buy a camera just for that,

We better not keep posting on this as the thread is mainly for photos!
