This Princess cruise hit all the important cities in the area which is why we chose it. It should have spent more time in Stockholm (4 hrs.). The ship was mostly docked a good distance from the cities, where you had to pay a shuttle or cab or bus just to get to where you could walk. Be prepared to walk a lot and on very uneven surfaces. The onboard port presenter was outstanding (John Lawrence). The movies they offered was excellent. The ship was very clean and kept up. Our waiter (traditional dining) was a bit harried and her helper not up to par. The food good most days and 3 were outstanding. Our room was supposedly upgraded although we were put down 3 decks, not the greatest. I would recommend deck 8 and above. We didn't go to any shows so can't comment about them.
