It's a smaller ship (~600 guests) but there was enough to do to keep us busy on sea days and entertained.

Just fabulous. We did the 3 day which included a trip to Moscow. Definitely the highlight of the cruise. Lots to do and see.

Helsinki, Finland

Nice town. Small so easy to walk around. The ship docked right in down town near the prime minister's residence.

We disembarked here. Had to catch a flight so didn't have time to do too much. We saw a few things in the old area but wish we had more time.
