Cities Worth Visiting

Sail Date: May 23, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ports of call on this cruise were both exciting and very historic and we learned alot about the history (Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, and Helsinki). Food in the Dining Rooms were very good, on the buffet, the food required some more heat (luke warm to cold).  Staff is very friendly and respond well to requests.  Our room Stewart and our dining staff did an outstanding job looking after us and learning us in the short time we were together. They gave it a more personal touch. The last port was short to visit and we felt rushed to get back.....overall though....I would go again!!

Ship Quality
Ship was looked after and full for the sailing

Service and Staff
Was not impressed with the caliber of entertainment on this cruise.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Aft Facing Stateroom was the best thing with a large balcony and a cabin steward that cared.
Copenhagen, Denmark
Did not get to see this great city due to flight restrictions
Stockholm, Sweden
Friendly people and some great excursions.
Tallinn, Estonia
Like stepping back in time. Take Euros
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
A lot of history and some great sights to see. They take Euros
Helsinki, Finland
Short visit, felt rushed, no shopping.


Get a drink package ahead of time, even if it is just Soda. There is only hot coffee, tea and water that is free....Bottled water and all other drinks have a significant price tag attached.
