Review summary

We really enjoyed this cruise. Stockholm and ST. Petersburg are two best cities to visit. The cruise ship was so big with so many people, it was amazing that we didn't feel crowded until we had meals at the Ocean Cafe, the buffets.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
We didn't realize that the embarkation wouldn't start until 11am and the stateroom wouldn't be ready until 1:30pm. We could have had some sightseeing right after we landed at Stockholm early in the morning. We probably should pay more attention on the schedule next time. Once the embarkation started, it was very fast and efficient to go thru the process. The staff were friendly and professional.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We really enjoyed the specialty restaurants. The main dining rooms were average. The buffets had many varieties, but there were so many people and it was difficult to find a seat inside the cafe since it was too chilly to sit outside.

Onboard Activities

The on-stage shows were excellent, especially the two performers: Phillip Healy (?) and Claire Maidin.

The cabin size is just right for us, especially the bathroom is big enough to feel comfortable. The staff kept the cabin really clean.

Ports of call

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
Stockholm is a beautiful city, a lot to see. We had two excursions and really enjoyed the Archipelago one.

Helsinki, Finland

4 out of 5
yes, we did an excursion, ice bar and city tour. The Rock church is quite unique.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
Had an excursion to Peterhof palace, inside and outside. The excursion was too short for such a beautiful and big place. We could have stayed there for whole day.

Tallinn, Estonia

3 out of 5
Had an excursion and it was OK. We could have done our own sightseeing instead of excursion.

Riga, Latvia

5 out of 5
Riga actually was surprisingly a beautiful city to visit. We did our own sightseeing, however, even with a map, it was difficult to navigate through the old town.
