Review summary

The only negative was the total lack of embarkation and "detailed" planning information. This should have been sent to us by Costa and we still never have received it.

This was almost a disaster. We had zero information about embarkation. When sending requests to Costa via email they were closed till the following Monday. We almost missed the boat.

Ship was very clean and tidy. A very good regimen about daily cleaning.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
I wish we could have been able to select a cabin before hand but it was ok. What we expected. Clean and large enough to move about.

Ship tip

This is a mixture of Europeans and others from all over, which we prefer. If you're looking for a US boat, this isn't it.

Ports of call

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
Loved Stockholm. Easy to get to the city center. Lots of buses and taxis. Note: the taxis don't turn on their meters...set a price before you get in.

Helsinki, Finland

5 out of 5
Loved Helsinki, even with the rain. Wonderful to walk about the marina and markets

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
Very good tour.

Tallinn, Estonia Did not visit port

I was sick
