14 Night Scandinavia & Russia (Amsterdam Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 20, 2016
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6205
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

This cruise itinerary was really nice; 9 port cities in 8 countries.  Ship was excellent (Celebrity Silhouette) - nice accommodations, excellent staff always looking to please, and pretty good (though not fabulous) food.  I would definitely sail on this ship again, and would recommend the "Scandinavia - Russia" itinerary.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Ocean View Cafe (buffet) food was better than average, but the environment was bordering on chaotic at meal times; occasionally could not find a table for 4 people.

Onboard Activities

Would have liked more substantive port talks. They should have been give more than once, to allow more people to hear them.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very nice cabin. Obstructed view was a bit frustrating, since we couldn't look down and see anything due to the lifeboat being in our way.

Ship Tip

For St. Petersburg, we booked our own private tour (for 4 people) ahead of time. It was expensive, but worth it. We were able to customize our itinerary, avoid the traveling with a group of 40-50 people, and get into attractions without waiting on the long lines.,
