Review summary

They need to improve the communication to passengers. I’ve been on a lot of cruises so we figured things out, but this boat could do a lot to make the trip more fun. It was freezing cold and the only smoking room was outside. My impression is that the staffs job is to sell you stuff you don’t need. Felt really pressured to spend which wasn’t much fun

Food and Dining

Specialty restaurants were excellent but the rest was only ok. Not the worse I’ve had on cruise ships but not the best

Onboard Activities

Loved the day spa

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room steward was excellent but the majority of the staff were indifferent or more concerned with talking to each other than answering your questions. This was not a warm and friendly ship

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

Some went to Berlin and some in our cabin stay close to the boat. We both loved Germany. If your staying close to the dock investigate on your own. Lovely port towns are walkable and lovely

Tallinn, Estonia

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

Don’t buy the ship tour. It’s triple the cost. We used Shore Excursions and our guide was excellent. Be prepared for big lines. Food was terrible

Helsinki, Finland

5 out of 5
Loved this city. We simply investigated the city on our own. It’s just beautiful

Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden

Don’t take the cruise excursion. It was terrible. We left the group and went on our own. A beautiful city
