The bathroom was stupendous. Huge double sink, good size walk-in shower with all sorts of spray. Largest bathroom I’ve had out of 6 cruises!

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

4 out of 5
Did evening at Hermitage and next day 9 hr tour of magnificent St Petersburg. Just seemed not as free and open as other stops

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
A fabulosiand very interesting city. Well preserved walled city. Sad to hear some of the war experiences. Germans and Russians both conscripting boys from Estonia who ended up fighting against each other. We hit it on market day. Did some nice shopping

Helsinki, Finland

4 out of 5
We did an excursion to the country and Porvo. Didn’t see much of Helsinki itself. Ok as we were getting citied out.

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
Nice city did walk around tour and stopped in an Ice bar which was a cool experience

Visby, Sweden

5 out of 5
Did walking tour of Visby. This was a fantastic change to our original itinerary. Land of roses and ruins. Walled medieval city well preserved and beautiful

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Disembarking is never a good experience. However it was ok as these things go. Must say it was well organized and not too chaotic. Just a mob scene with no elevator availability
