this was my 3rd Royal Caribbean Cruise and have to say I was very disappointed. The ship is very old, small, and looks like it needs so TLC. The customer service overall is great expect for the guest services whom are clueless on what is going around the ship. our room attendant I think her name was Alideia was fantastic always greeting us with a smile, helping open the door when our hands were full. We did the 8:30 dining and it was awesome but the food had good and bad days for sure. The windjammer always packed breakfast always the same thing, lunch changed but hard to find a place to eat. Each morning I started off with my drinks at The bar in the Solarium Randy Opena is beyond outstanding. In the evening Paul Williams in the pub knocked me off my feet with his knowledge of wines and beers. the main pool was cold and small spent time in the hot tub which the first 2 days was cold but then was nice and hot. everything closed early on this ship like 6ish which was odd and the solarium had kids constantly in and out so rules not enforced. The activities i tired to see each main show after 15 mins I would walk out because it was that bad. this ship was very much geared to 50 plus if not older. Overall we meet some wonderful people and enjoyed most of the ports expect Finland. I will still sail Royal as overall they do have great customer service.

very old ship things close very early if you are under 60's not much to do as the entertainment is very much focused on an older crowd
we absolute loved Copenhagen! Get The Copenhagen card for all transportation and activities. we took the Metro to our hotel the night before. we stayed at Hotel Christian IV close to rosenborg castle and took the bus to the cruise port very easy. when we returned got another Card and stayed at Andersen Boutique Hotel for 2 nights close to Tivoli Gardens also took a bus back to this place. Public transport is so easy in Copenhagen and the people are so wonderful everyone pretty much speak English and seem to help tourist no problem. It is very expensive here so a good meal will cost you. also Many museums are closed Mondays .
Booked a tour with Alla Tours what an awesome experience. 14 people in a nice van and our guide Alex was amazing. we took the subway, then checked out the Hermitage museum, Church of the Blood Savior, On the way to Catherine's Palace we had a bag lunch which was actually awesome sandwich, apple, muffin, juice and a Russian beer. then we visited Catherine Palace, followed by Peterhof lower fountain park and upper Gardens . I wished we had more time here as this place was astounding and Alla made everything so wonderful. FYI it did take an hour to get through immigration which can be frustrating so be patient
not much to do here at all we did the 3 churchs and the market. we did use the crusie ship shuttle $12.00 each round trip to get from the port to a drop off spot. We walked around the town which yes we got lost. The Lutheran church doesn't open until 9:30 am and Upsenski Cathedral 10am so there no rush to get off the ship. The Rock Church was our favorite.
