July 2015 - Serenade of the Seas to Europe - Northern Europe
We cruised the Baltic 15 years ago and enjoyed the entire experience but especially we loved St. Petersburg. We wanted to see and compare the changes since our last visit (on a different line.) We were impressed with RCI and the quality of the cruise experience. The ports have changed (different locations and better dock facilities) and the cities are better prepared for visitors. There were 4 ports that we did not visit our first time around and they were a delight. St. Petersburg is wonderful and the fact that we had 3 days in port was a deciding factor. The Baltic was our second cruise and also our twenty-third cruise.
