Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Excellent... ate mostly in Blu. Tried Murano (fantastic food & service) and also Tuscan Grill which was lovely

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Demographic of this cruise definitely older than our previous cruise (we are mid 40's) Activities seemed geared to the older demographic which is fine as they were the majority but there wasn't a huge amount of 'active' activities

Entertainment

3 out of 5
a little hit and miss...Hypnotist show was fun but the actual hyptnotism piece could have been condensed to 10 minutes - it felt light on content. Beatles were superb...

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Fantastic... as usual

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Always very clean and well maintained... some aspects a little tired... some of the rattan chairs in sunset bar frayed and you have to make sure they don't catch your clothes. toiletries dispensers in spa showers broken (they actually weren't fixed/or had broken again since the October cruise) the Ship is going for 'refurb' late '19 early '20 but it is still being well maintained barring a few very minor niggles

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great cabin (does have overhang which we actually prefer) limited noise from Deck 12

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden

4 out of 5
Unless they increase the number of hop on/hop off buses - don't waste the $40 per ticket you'll find the stops hard to find, buses full and end up waiting additional time for an bus with space to come along (as the spacing between buses is 20/30 mins - this is a long time - we gave up and walked)

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

5 out of 5
Beautiful place

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
off earlier than expected
