Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We had My Time dining, never had to wait to get a table for 2, made reservations on line before embarkation but we sometimes went earlier or later than reservation time and still never had to wait. Also ate at Chops and Giovannis, both were very enjoyable!

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

5 out of 5
Spent one night in Copenhagen before the cruise, stayed at Absalom hotel near Central Station, took the train there from airport, was very easy. Went to Tivoli Gardens - very enjoyable! Stayed at the Admiral hotel for one night after cruise, near Nyhaven, great hotel and location, walking distance to Little Mermaid, Amalienborg castle for changing of the guard, Rosenborg castle to see the crown jewels, and a little shopping on the Stroget - a packed day but well worth it!

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
We booked a tour with Alla, only 8 people in our group, Miriam was our guide and she was excellent. Vasa museum was the highlight.

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
We walked to old town and spent the day on our own using the Rick Steve's guide and exploring the shops and sights- easy port to do on your own.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

5 out of 5
Booked a tour with Alla instead of ship excursion - only 14 people in a beautiful Mercedes van, great driver and guide, excellent experience!

Helsinki, Finland

4 out of 5
We did a bike tour (ship excursion) and then walked around the open air market - Helsinki is beautiful but just doesn't have as much to see in terms of sights and attractions as the other ports.
