Review summary

It was a nice cruise and we visited some lovely ports. The sea got a bit rough in the last couple of days but we were on our way home by then. Lovely crew and the ship was spotless.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Enjoyed the shows. Loved the Atomic band. Various different musicians in the Piazza kept up a party feel.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We had really good waiters in the MDR. They always kept the table for us and made us a small candle lit cake for our anniversary.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was spotless. Like the fact that there were 4 anytime dining rooms, it gave a more intimate feel to the restaurant.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Good size cabin and balcony which was well maintained by our stewardship. Very comfortable.

Ship tip

Go and enjoy yourselves. If there is anything you don't like tell the crew and they'll do their utmost to make sure you're happy.

Been there before so did not visit this time

Copenhagen, Denmark

5 out of 5
Love Copenhagen. The only thing against us was the weather. It rained all through our excursion and stopped as soon as we got back on board.

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
Lovely city. Visited Sigtuna which was really nice and the Vasa museum which did not disappoint. Guide was good and knowledgeable.

Helsinki, Finland

3 out of 5
Nice port but every excursion ends up taking you to Senate Square. Not as much variety as other ports.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
Highlight of the whole cruise. Took a private 2 day excursion with SPB and loved it. Visited everything on our list and more. Guide was very nice and knowledgeable. So much to see and do here.

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
Lovely little town. Near enough to the port to explore on your own. No need for an excursion. The people are really nice too.

Gdynia (Gdansk), Poland Did not visit port

Did not visit because of the weather. Instead we went to Warnemunde which was really pretty.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
