Review summary

We took this same cruise 4 years ago on the Ruby Princess.  The ports of call are terrific but beware - do NOT buy the "Best of Stockholm" shore excursion.  It's a total waste of time and is galactically boring.  Take the bus to Vasa yourself and then see Stockholm on your own.  However, the 2 day excursion in St. Petersburg was exceptional in every way - lunches and dinner with entertainment, champagne hosting at Catherine's Palace, the canal cruise, etc.  Far better than our excursion there 4 years ago.  The ship is the flagship of their fleet and is new/nice.

Anytime dining worked best for us. All the food on the ship is great.

Entertainment

This was really quite disappointing. The quality of the entertainment was not on par with other cruises, nor with the quality of this new ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

The inside cabins are MUCH smaller than the balcony cabins. We chose inside to have a dark room for sleeping, but it was a bit cramped.

Be sure to go to the Church of Our Lady. Amazing sculptures of Christ and the Apostles line both walls.

It's a beautiful city but the port of call is waaaay too short - only a few hours. Do NOT take the "Best of Stockholm" excursion. It totally sucks & is a waste of time.
