First cruise ship in Tallinn with only Chinese passengers on Board

MSC Orchestra cruise ship docks in Tallinn today (June 15). It’s the first cruise ship sailing on the Baltic Sea with only Chinese passengers on board. The ships sails to Tallinn from St. Petersburg and leaving to Warenmunde after 8-hour stop in the capital of Estonia.

More than 1500 cruise passengers from China are heading to the streets of Tallinn. Cruise trip is a good way to get to know a destination briefly and can inspire visitors to come back for longer period. Visit Tallinn has maps in Chinese that carry information of all the major sights and museums. Maps are free and available at the Tourist Information Centre (Niguliste 2) in the Old Town. 
The research is showing that Chinese tourists are interested in visiting sights and shopping. More trips to far-away destinations and repeated trips to Europe take place.
