Food and Dining
Food excellent BUT, we were very disappointed jeans were allowed in the dining room on formal nights. I, along with others, spent a considerable amount of money bringing tuxedos and suits only to be seated next to slobs wearing jeans. We would not take this cruise again unless a dress code is enforced. Also a beer package would be nice.
Ship Quality
Always spotless. Very nice.
Cabin / Stateroom
A nice surprise on the size. Very pleased.
Service and Staff
Outstanding to say the least.
Nice variety but nothing to brag about.
Visby, Sweden
Lovely stop. We enjoyed walking around and having lunch.
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
The hermitage was impressive but way too crowded and hot. Our guide kept losing some of our group because she walked too fast for some of the older people and she failed to keep our group number sign up. Very frustrating.
Don't Miss: The ballet was extremely enjoyable.
Gdynia (Gdansk), Poland
The Stepphof concentration camp was very moving and depressing to say the least.
Don't Miss: Stepphof
Helsinki, Finland
We just enjoyed walking around and having lunch. Also liked the Lutheran Cathedral.
Riga, Latvia
We enjoyed walking around this quaint city and having lunch. Also enjoyed an organ recital at the large cathedral. Love shopping for amber also.
