aqua class on Silhouette in the baltic

Sail Date: May 03, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Great itinerary for the Baltic. Hit the  major cities, just wish we had longer times in ports. My husband and I personally love Aqua class because we love the Blu Restaurant. Amazingly this ship never seemed like we were with 2800 other passengers because there are lots of  tucked away lounging areas.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Plenty of drink waiters, which is a pleasant surprise because we had a drink package and were not paying for each individual drink , you know sometimes you get an unlimited drink package but then can never get a waiter therefor making you package very limited
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
can not even name everyone, but thanks to Michael at the pool bar who kept us hydrated while we were in the jacuzzi every day, Yasine and julio in the Blu restaurant and our wine steward in Blu
Entertainment
Onboard Activities
not as many on board activities as some ships, but this cruise destination is an older crowd. personal I would have liked more lecturers on our ports of call
Destinations and Excursions
destinations were great. I did not use any of the ship excursions
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
We were going to catch a train to Rostock and Scherwin castle but a train strike ended that plan so we walked around this small resort town and were pleasantly surprised what a cute "beach town". There is a church,lighthouse, nice park, plenty of eating and shopping, and huge sandy beaches
Tallinn, Estonia
wonderful well preserved, can walk to everything, but not for anyone with mobility issues, hilly cobblestone streets lots of stairs. do your own walking tour with a download like Rick Steves. Plenty of shops. I love this town
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
you must use a tour group in Russia, but it does not have to be thru the ship. book ahead on line ,print up your tour ticket and extra copies of you passport . Bring an individual copy for each person in you party, the russian immigration is very picky! our tour was fabulous, great city 2 days just covers the highlights
Helsinki, Finland
easy to get around on public transportation. Bus 14 picks up at pier, 8 euros gets an all day pass for bus, tram ferry, Tram 2 or 3 takes you all over to all sites, take the ferry out to the fort on Soumenlinna island
Stockholm, Sweden
big city so you need transportation, especially if ship docks at Frihamer pier. Opted for Hop on Hop Off that picks up at pier. this was by far the worst HOHO I have ever been on Most of the time the commentary did not work and when it did, the information was sparse on the sites we were passing. Have you own guide book with you !
Fredericia, Denmark
The people in little Fredericia a are so excited to see the ship come in. the band plays when we arrive and leave, and they shoot off cannons, the friendly people are easy with directions. It only takes 2 hours see whole town, so do this in the afternoon on the way back to the ship after you have taken a train trip to Kolding to see Koldinghaus castle. 10 min train ride (easy to buy $6 ticket sold in machine in train station that is in english or what ever language you need) train station is a 20 min walk from pier
Copenhagen, Denmark
we walked this city, could have done Hop on hop off, but it was the same company that ran the HOHO in Stockholm, 1 day not enough even to see highlights. loved Rosenborg castle

Tip

Fredericia Denmark is a very small town, you can see everything in 2 hours. The people are so happy to see the ship. The band played when we arrived and when we left, they shot off cannons, they were happy to give directions.
