Review summary

Good cruise which proved to be worth the cost. Liked the "at sea days" as a chance to recover from some long walking city visits. And not to sound like a Norwegian shill, really like this cruise lines approach to dining and entertainment. Hats off to the musical group who entertained in the Aspire area. Hardest working group.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
All the staff were excellent except perhaps for our room steward. While he did what was expected didn't seem like he wanted to go for that extra little zing. Spouse was disappointed to never see a towel make into a animal.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Constant maintenance was observed.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very comfortable. Looks smallish when you first see it, but then quickly realize that it's filled with spaces for all your things. Really appreciate the large space under the bed for suitcase storage. Nice thing about this cabin, an easy walk to the closest elevator.

Ship tip

Subscribe to the drinks package.

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

Spent a few days here before cruise. Great decision. Nice city, friendly people.

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

4 out of 5
Did not do an excursion. Have been to Berlin before. Decent small German city to visit. Staff in downtown tourist info center were superb.

Tallinn, Estonia

4 out of 5
Interesting city. Did the Tallinn walking tour excursion. If your mobility is limited skip. Walking can be difficult over stone streets. Very inexpensive for shopping.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
Did a private excursion, 2 day, with TJ Travel. Great guide and much better price than with the cruise line. That said, St Petersburg is a firehose tour. Way more to be seen than can be done in just two days. Glad we did not opt for an evening event after first day's walking, and walking, and walking.

Helsinki, Finland

5 out of 5
Not enough time...Did a Hop On/Hop Off. Got to see what we wanted with this.

Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden

4 out of 5
Liked Stockholm a lot but the port for this cruise is a 1 hour bus ride away from Stockholm. So a good percentage of day is gone to travel. Again did the Hop On/Hop Off tour. Nice lunch at one of the cafes outside of the Nobel Museum.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Got us to the airport with absolutely no stress to catch our departure flight.
