But now first to the tickets to Waren(Müritz):
If you want to go to Berlin by train, but your trains leave BEFORE 9 AM in Warnemünde AND ROSTOCK HBF (Hauptbahnhof = Central Station), you need a ticket to cover the time BEFORE 9 AM.
The first stop after 9 am on the way to Berlin is Waren(Müritz) - departure 9.34 am. You do not need to leave your Berlin-bound train, just stay and if the conductor asks again: show them your next ticket:
Your Länderticket Brandenburg-Berlin (Day Pass for the States of Brandenburg and Berlin) became valid AFTER 9 am.
So you need a full fare ticket to Waren(Müritz).
The best way to buy is the Internet:
So can do it three monthes ahead of your day of travel until 10 minutes before scheduled departure.
You only need single journey, as on your return the Länderticket Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is valid - only if your travellling alone to Berlin it's cheaper in this schedule constellation to buy a return journey.
To avoid problems with special German letters:
ä, ö, ü = ae, oe, ue
ß = ss
So your place of origin is Warnemuende.
Your destination is Waren(Mueritz).
Your date of travel: DD.MM.YYYY (!!!)
Your expected time of travel: HH:MM (24-hours-style, best 45 minutes after ship's arrival in Warnemünde)

For other destinations you will get seperate instructions.
And here is the way described how you find the train station from your cruise terminal:
You can buy the tickets for Waren(Müritz) in the station building but due to limited opening hours and language skills let me explain you how to operate the ticket machines which you find after you get up the stairs and reached the station area. The Ländertickets are available here as well, but the price here is higher than in the ticket machines.
UPDATE: August 2009
Both machines have been upgraded to the newest generation which accepts cash and German Bankcards for destinations like Rostock and Bad Doberan and international credit cards for all other destinations as well:
So the new function is the acceptance of Euro-Change and Euro-Bills (max. amount vary to your individual total amount).

Then you should get the German screen like this.

Touch the international flags at the bottom to change the language.
Please touch the Union Jack (British Flag) to change to English.

Only if you are going to Hamburg on Friday, Saturday or Sunday you might better have a reservation if you use the IC long-distance-trains.
