This was our fourth cruise and our second on Royal Caribbean.  We found the ship clean and well kept.  Our room was the same.  Our room attendant, Norma, was wonderful.  The only real disappointment was the food in the Windjammer Cafe.  It was not well cooked at all.  The food in the dinning room and the specialty cafes was excellent as was the service.  We didn't understand how there could be such a difference.

We had two complete days at sea but very short stops in Stockholm and Helsinki.  Would liked to have longer shore time in both. All the port towns were amazing.

Bad in the Windjammer Cafe, great in the dinning room and specialty cafes


We didn't attend any so I can't comment other than that it was too loud in the center attrium

Room was small but clean and comfortable. Has a very large deck which we enjoyed with our friends. Slightly obstructed view but the size more than made up for it. Also very private. We enjoyed wine and cheese there every night.

We arrived three days early to avoid jet lag and see the city. So glad that we did. It is wonderful.

Great city. Just too short a stop to see much. Don't miss the Vasa museum.

Maybe my best stop of the cruise. Loved the old medieval town center, the food and the shopping.

Everything you expect and more. We hired a private guide and driver. Best way to go even if it is expensive. Use Best
