Room Type: Suite

TV useless - horrible programming and no way to get videos/VCR's etc with room card.  The library is the same - USELESS!  Must stay in enclosed little room to read a book - after thousands spent you'd think you could check out a book for a few days - NO. So if weather not condusive to swim or sun and you are older and just want quiet time in your room between tours you have to haul many books etc. tour specialists that help you on days of tours are especially good at what they do. Tours very organized and went well. All as described. We needed special help and it was ready before we got there. Entertainment on ship below par (one exception). Not enough time in port in Helsinki and Stockholm. I say cut out a day in Berlin, a lot of people felt that way. Good selection of food but not special enough re: all the fresh fish. No caviar, little lobster, crab etc. open dining a fiasco - so crowded, crammed in like sardines. Good thing we had unlimited dining or would have used buffet exclusively. Be sure to go to o'Sheehans - quiet with great service and have breakfast too. 

Cabin / Stateroom
The ship is nice with very nautical feel to spacious room. Lots of storage, nice sized bath with separate dressing table. Great balcony and really quiet ship.

Copenhagen, Denmark
Get Copenhagen card if you can stay two or three days before or after cruise - well worth it.
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
Tallinn, Estonia
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Took tour in am and in pm - worked great.
Helsinki, Finland
Plan to stay after tour and return on own to ship.
Stockholm, Sweden
Stay until you have to leave - too short a visit.


Be careful you are not directly under something. Every morning we were a waked by 6 for joggers or diners.
