You're not specifically asking about it, but the post-Switzerland Europe part of your itinerary looks very rushed to me. Between travel days, you'll barely have time to catch your breath, let along to see all the sights most of these places have to offer. I'd strongly consider extending your trip if you want to see all these places, or taking some tough decision and cutting half the destinations, in order to get a better appreciation of the remainder.

Good advice, unfortunately the jack in a box stops post Switzerland is the result of being on a cruise where stops are short and sweet. Most of these places we have visited before and it was a cheap way of working out way back towards Helsinki where out RTW airfare with FinnAir has to transit through.
Fifty five days is about the time limit for us and with two cruises & a conference we will be busy.
The RTW was the cheapest way to get to our conference & back but does make lots of flights.
The million dollar question is can we avoid covid with all this jumping around.
Luckily we have a whole 2 days in Amsterdam where my son has just moved for 6 mts work , so we have a “local “ tour guide
Especially looking forward to this early in our trip.

Ah, I had missed that these are all port cities! Never mind me, then. :)

No worries, always up for some advice.
I’ve travelled yearly overseas for over 40!years to well over 100 countries and have never blogged. Do thought I’d give it a go this time snd came upon this site randomly.
FinnAir have just revamped their A350 and A330 with interesting single shell seats in Business which has created much comment .
I’m looking forward to reviewing them. Our outgoing flights fro SYD and Incoming from SIN are on my fav plane the A380 which also has been upgraded including the bus/first Bar area which is fun to frequent.
It’s a tragedy this plane is no longer been made especially for us Aussies who have lots of long flights
