Great Cruise to the Baltic Countries
This was our second cruise on Brilliance OTS. The ship is older but well maintained. The service across the board on this ship was outstanding. We were in a Grand Suite on Deck 10 mid ship which was quite comfortable. We dined in the Main Dining Room (very good), the Windjammer (average) and three Specialty venues- Chef's Table (outstanding), Chops (excellent) and Izumi (excellent). The entertainment on the ship was nothing special but not bad. Our one complaint was the high price paid for wireless internet - which failed to work in our cabin. The ports were all very interesting both historically and culturally. We used ALLA tours in St. Petersburg and we took the two-day comfort tour. It was one of the best tour experiences that we have ever enjoyed. ALLA is professional and Top-Notch all the way. We thought the hidden gem on the cruise was Tallin Estonia which was just beautiful. We also loved the friendliness of the people in Skagen, Denmark. Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki were similar big cities which each had their special charms. The cruise was very scenic overall. Just a bit cool for July - temperatures were 55-65 F for the whole cruise. Nice bucket-list cruise!
