Review summary

Would highly recommend this cruise. Excellent value, great food and service!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Quick and easy! We were impressed with how fast it went, no trouble at all and we were on board enjoying the awesome buffet!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We thought the food was outstanding, we have cruised on several different lines and we give Celebrity 5 stars out of 5! The buffet (which we usually avoid assuming it’s mediocre) was excellent with so many options. Our main dining room was so great that we never visited any of the specialty restaurants!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The usual activities were there and perfectly acceptable but only 1 stood out and that was their podium lectures on history of some of our ports. Particularly the one on the Romanovs before we arrived in St. Petersburg. That was very enjoyable and informative.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Again, for the most part the entertainment was average. There was a nice variety and we did particularly enjoy a couple of the vocal groups that joined us on board for one nights performance.

Children's Programs

No children traveling with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service was outstanding. Our cabin steward and dining staff were just fabulous, friendly and accommodating. Definitely one of the highlights of the cruise!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very well maintained throughout.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5

Ports of call

Brugge (Bruges), Belgium

5 out of 5
Charming area, we took an excursion to Ghent which we enjoyed.

Copenhagen, Denmark

3 out of 5
We did take a city tour excursion which unfortunately was not very good so it made our experience less than great. However we shared our issues with Guest Services upon our return and they were very responsive to our comments and did give us credit back from what we paid.

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
We did another excursion which was very good, so much to see and we did enjoy visiting this port.

Visby, Sweden

5 out of 5
This tiny place was a gem! So medievally charming and we had a great guide for our excursion.

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
Another charming medieval city, the old town square looks like something straight out of a fairy tale!

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
LOVED this port, definitely the highlight of the cruise. We chose an excursion from an independent company and very much enjoyed it. Our travel partners did a similar excursion with Celebrity and they seemed very comparable, just more expensive.

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

4 out of 5
We took the long excursion to Berlin for the day. Very glad we saw this city but it was quite a long distance from the port.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Again, very quick and easy! We were sorry to be leaving for sure!
