Review summary

Overall cruise was very good.  Saw lots of ports and interesting sites in a limited amount of time.  Used all Princess tours except Tallinn,  a bit expensive but overall very good.  Could have used more sea days to rest up, only 2 sea days plus the tiring effect of jet lag coming in from US 2 days early.  Very good balcony cabin space except bath a bit small.  Evening dining very good, horizon breakfeast/lunch fair/good.  Very good embarkation and disembarkation system.  Entertainment:  2 nights of Princess cast and band very good, Beattlemania very good, rest so-so.

Top quilt/blanket sheet combo was too warm, had to turn air conditioning way down.

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

5 out of 5
Came in 2 days prior to cruise. Find a hotel with a/c (most don't) because with open windows the drunks on street keep you awake all night hollering and singing.

Oslo, Norway

Arhus, Denmark

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

5 out of 5
Don't go to Berlin (3 hours train each way). We took local tours which were good.

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
Be physically able to climb steep cobblestone streets. Very scenic and interesting history.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5

Helsinki, Finland

3 out of 5
Not as good as other ports. Kind of a tourist trap as far a sites to see. Do on your own with Hop On Hop Off bus.

Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden Did not visit port

Ship must tender + hour bus ride away from Stockholm. Worth the stop but traffic in city was terrible delaying part of our tour. The Vasa Museum was terrific!
