The ship was beautiful, nicely sized rooms (except for small bathroom), fantastic dining and service. Nice excursions. Entertainment in showroom a bit off, but the disco was pretty good.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Tremendous dining options with great service. No need to even seek out specialty dining rooms, although we did try the Aqualina.

Excellent spa and fitness center. Great space for the disco in the Looking Glass area. The shows were less than hoped for...but often missed parts of this due to late dining.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Common areas nicely designed and clean. A rich look, but not over the top.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Stateroom with a balcony...good space, except for cramped bathroom, but adequate nonetheless.

Beautiful palaces...the frustration is the lack of freedom to wander about without a visa.
Don't Miss: Hermitage, Katerina's palace, Peterhof

Loved the city. Compact and beautiful. Very expensive however. Great restaurants (ate at the Lydmar hotel, the Sturehof, and the Gondolen). Spent extra time here.
Don't Miss: Gamlan Stan...old town.
