Should Have Been Better

Sail Date: August 31, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The itinerary was absolutely fabulous.  The ship is just too big and there are no quiet places to read and relax.  For a 26 day cruise and 4,000 passengers, 2 washers and 2 dryers per side at the very back of the ship is ridiculous.  Spa treatments are extremely expensive and a sales pitch comes with it.  Ship tours are also pricey so we, along with hundreds of others, opted for the Hop-On-Hop-Off option available at most of the ports.  This ship is designed to be efficient and move people, not to relax and enjoy.  My husband and I will take a smaller ship any time we cruise from now on.

Cabin / Stateroom
It was fine. Nothing special about it. The TV had ESPN 1 and 2 but only showed "sports" from 2 and 3 years from Australia, fitness challenges, rugby. Absolutely NO American football, which many passengers complained about.

Food and Dining
Our dining experience in the Allegra was great. The Horizon on deck 16 is a challenge since there are 4 separate areas to find food and sometimes it took a visit to all 4 areas to complete breakfast.
Copenhagen, Denmark
Oslo, Norway
Goteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
Tallinn, Estonia
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Helsinki, Finland
Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden
We were not told that the dock is one hour train ride to Stockholm so we ended up only seeing the little town of Nynashamn. It was cute and quaint and we did enjoy it but missed Stockholm.


The Regal and Royal ships are on our "do not sail" list. They are just too big and are designed to maximize people movement.
