Excellent ports of call, good price, crowded ship

Sail Date: August 01, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We were pleased with all the ports of call and our sailing experience.  Sea was calm, weather was great.  The ship felt crowded and noisy in all the public areas.  Having a band playing loudly outside of the Le Bistro and La Cucina restaurants during dinner hour was not the experience we expected for a relaxing dinner.  O'Sheehans pub and the Versailles restaurant were our favorites.  Except for one rude waitress in O'Sheehan's the entire staff treated us well and were always friendly.  Our inside stateroom on level 5 was quiet and we slept well.  If you only take one city tour, I recommend St. Petersburg.  It was the highlight of our trip.  Oldtown Tallinn, Estonia was an unexpected gem.  Really enjoyed the entertainment in the showroom.  I liked that the Captain kept us informed at all times.

Cabin / Stateroom
Inside cabin saved us some money that we could spend on excursions and entertainment. The room was so quiet that we couldn't tell if the ship was moving or stopped. Room stewards were great at keeping everything in order. Some noise from restaurant above that didn't interfere with our rest and sleep.
Copenhagen, Denmark
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
We selected the Berlin excursion. Expensive and probably wouldn't recommend it.
Tallinn, Estonia
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Helsinki, Finland
Stockholm, Sweden


This ship is very family oriented. If having children around is not your cup of tea then you should consider another cruise.
