One of the cruises of a lifetime. Very happy with the ship, the crew, the stops. I highly recommend (but maybe when the weather is a tad warmer. It was very chilly starting out, but warmed up as we went through the 2 weeks.

Seemed like the public areas were slow to be cleaned. Tables on the pool deck were often dirty. Dishes were left for extended periods of time.

Our main reason for this cruise. Everything I had hoped for. Beautiful. We hired a private driver and tour guide. Well worth the cost.

Helsinki, Finland

2 out of 5
Helsinki is a big city with little character. Glad I got to see it but not someplace I'd return.

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
Lots of character. We did the red bus tour (hop on hop off) at most ports. Stockholm was gorgeous

Copenhagen, Denmark
