Relaxing not the best cruise but not the worst either.  Ship needs to be updated and understand it will go into dry dock later this year.  It needs it.  Unfortunately we are booked on same ship this summer for Baltic cruise.  Know ship and have made some changes based on our knowledge now.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Found getting a drink a bar was difficult, wait staff was good but sometimes at peak time had to wait. Dinner staff good, had 1 person who was sick and we feel exposed our group late in trip. Overall we were pleased.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship is OK but looks old, needs to go to dry dock and get refreshed.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Room OK it was clean but needed to updated, balcony area really dirty and rust everywhere. We didn't realize we would not have glass on balcony so had to stand to see out. Could not sit to enjoy view.
