Review summary

As this is only my third cruise and my first in this area, my judgement might not be that fair, however I would like to share my feeling. In general it was good experience. beautiful ship, nice and clean cabin, very kind and helpful staffs, great itinerary and good amenities. For outdoor jog lover, you are able to run half of the ship only. The Gym is not bad but so hard to find free cardio machine on seadays. The complimentary meal is only served at the Inca Maya (buffet) and either Le Arabesque or Golden Lobster. The Inca Maya serves mostly european/wetern food, hardly asian and the theme is almost the same during the cruise. The menu for dinner at the restaurant changes every night but you are seated at the same table. Nice hospitality of the waiters at the restaurant, especially Dario cs at Le Arabesque table 823. Food taste ranges from mediocre to good. Theather show is below my expectation, no such great show at all. Their agggresive photographers team was a bit annoying, they were almost every where. Expecting lazy chairs around the solarium pool, but they are at upper mezzanine, so you have to go though the stairs all the time.

Ports of call

Kiel, Germany Did not visit port

We started end ended the trip here, so we just knew the train station and the port. We had some times actually but not convenient to move around with the large suitcases.

Copenhagen, Denmark

4 out of 5
We took only the shuttle that dropped us in the city. It is a nice city to walk around, the downtown is not that big, so walking is enjoyful.

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
Very lovely city....once you are in the city (by shuttle bus) transportation is very easy either by train or bus. Nice walk along the river. Some asian restaurant.

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
Beautiful, not crowded, the downtown is just within walking distance from the port. worth doing that during nice weather. A lot of restaurants.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

4 out of 5
Due to the complication, better take the ship tour. A lot of beautiful historical building around.
