Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ports of call were, for the most part, quite interesting. St. Petersburg was definitely the best port and we booked a 2 day shore excursion to make the most of our time. If you have the chance, ride the subway in St. Petersburg. It's beautiful! Most people we spoke with did not go to Berlin, choosing to stay in Warnemunde or travel to Rostock for the Schwerin (?) Palace. Stockholm, Helsinki, and Tallinn are easy to do on your own with either a HOHO bus or public transportation. The Star is a beautiful ship with lots of activities, as well as quiet places. Try O'Sheehans for breakfast or a late night snack.

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Disembarked in Russia on the first day in port takes at least 45 minutes. Be sure to leave plenty of time to meet your tour guide.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was missing a shampoo dispenser for the first half of the cruise and the steward did not sweep the bathroom floor. Our bed was made sloppily on a couple of days. Some nights we had chocolates at turn down service and some nights we did not. We had to ask for a second bath towel as well.


One of the bartenders was changing a large, dirty bandage on his hand at the bar so we went to a different bar. We spoke with one of the managers who said that it would be addressed, but that was the last we heard about it.
Favorite specialty restaurant, Moderno or La Cucina.
