We loved the specialty restaurants, however, all the other restaurants and buffet were excellent.

Onboard Activities

Didn't participate. We were to busy with shore excursions and other activities.

All were great except the duo "Howl at the Moon". Excellent musicians but they just can't sing.

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

5 out of 5
Loved Copenhagen. Took private shore excursion and really enjoyed the canal cruise.

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

5 out of 5
Did not book a shore excursion for Berlin because we had already been there. Warnemunde and Rostock were beautiful and well worth visiting.

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
Booked a private shore excursion. Well worth visiting this old medieval town.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
We really liked St. Petersburg. We took a private shore excursion for two days and it was jammed packed with site visits. 9am to 6 pm each day.

Helsinki, Finland

4 out of 5
We did the hop-on-hop off bus tour in Helsinki. We were glad we visited and toured the city but it did not have the wow factor of other visited ports.

Goteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden

3 out of 5
We were not able to visit the port due to high winds and poor weather. We would have preferred to visit Stockholm instead of Gothenburg.


5 out of 5
Very well organized and smooth. We were off the ship and on our way to the airport within 15 minutes of the disembarkation announcement.
