Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Loved the spa and gym. Some classes cost extra money :-( Get a drink card, it saves money in the long run, when you want a coffee or soda. Staff was awesome, very attentive. Tried just about everything on board. We were matched with a family at dinner that was so nice. I've been on 5 cruises, and this is the way to go. They had movies under the stars with blankets and cushy deck chairs, popcorn was available too. In afternoons the milk and hot cookies cart came out on deck...and we loved the pizza and creamy ice cream bar the best. You won't be disappointed if you book this cruise!

Pros: Scandanavia

Cons: Not enough time in one of them...Estonia

Recommends Emerald Princess? Yes!

Food and Dining
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balconey room on Rivera deck....loved the location.
Our friends had the bigger balcony on the lower deck, but for the amount of time you are out on the balcony the smaller one worked just fine for us. Loved getting the exercise going up and down the stairs too.
Service and Staff
They have a nice laundry room set up with ironing boards.
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Did the 2 day tour and it was worth it for the Hermitage, also took the canal boat, but it was raining, & cold so that put a damper on the day. You do see a lot with the tour, but it is fast moving. They did serve us caviar with lunch and of course Russian vodka. Great History here!!!
Don't Miss: The Hermitage and Peterhof Palace!!!
Tallinn, Estonia
My favorite port. Tallinn is a beautiful old city with charm. We walked every where. Be sure and grab a pastry in one of the many small cafe's.
Don't Miss: Dome church
Oslo, Norway
We rode the trains here and it was so much fun. Didn't get to Kon-Tiki, but that was o.k. we were short on time in this port too....walking too is easy way to get around
Don't Miss: VIGELAND Sculpture Park
Helsinki, Finland
Rock Church was way cool...can be crowded and people aren't respectful that they are inside a church, this bugged me...but you have to go see it. Also went to the Market Place and saw the Senate Building. Very clean city.
Don't Miss: Senate Square
Gdynia (Gdansk), Poland
We took the tri-city tour and did get to a beach this time. I would suggest you do your own thing on this port. This is a quick stop, so would have liked more time here.
Stockholm, Sweden
Wasn't that impressed with the Viking ship "Vasa" everyone else liked it in our group, but I liked the surrounding area better. Saw the crown jewels and changing of the guard at the Royal Palace, this was worth it. Very pretty city.
Don't Miss: Go to the water and you'll love walking around this city, easy walks...
