Review Summary

Service, well thought out people-moving, cuisine and operations were super. Performance of the vessel under all sea conditions encountered was superb. The entire ship was immaculate and the staff were friendly, efficient and courteous. In spite of the large number of passengers and crew, there was no crowding at any facility at any time. Children were managed with success.

Ports Of Call

Oslo, Norway

3 out of 5
The ski jump was a waste of time. Better to see the inhabited part sof the city.
Don't Miss: Hard Rock Cafe!

Tallinn, Estonia

3 out of 5
Too much quaint. See the modern part of the city - very vibrant
Don't Miss: Not enough time!

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

3 out of 5
Other than the official tourist area (Hermitage, etc.) the rest was pretty bland. The city and its people are falling apart, it seems.
Don't Miss: Ballet, subway (metro) ride.

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
Must see the Vasa Museum. The embodiment of royal "hubris!"
Don't Miss: (see above)
