Nice Itinerary, Ship just Average

Sail Date: July 2012
Destination: Baltic & Northern Europe
Embarkation: Amsterdam

Cabin was good-sized for an inside and always clean.

Leaving the ship and returning was a breeze.

Nice theatre for viewing movies.

We were never hounded for drinks.

Shore excursions to pricey

In-house entertainment rather than professionals. It was kind of like a high school production.

Zumba on an Xbox? Strange as this seems, there was an attendant who did the warm up. However, some of her moves were not professional and could be damaging.

Gym classes too expensive.

No board games

No crafts other than hokey-looking scrapbooking.

No covered walking tracks like on other ships

Food

Sea Side Cafe (buffet)

First of all, the running track was right above the Seaside Cafe. Thump, thump, thump.

Desserts were the same for lunch and dinner and were repeated day after day.
Most of the desserts were cream based--never any plain cake with frosting or even pie.

It More appeared breads and desserts were not prepared on the ship like other cruise lines. They looked rather store-bought.

Breakfast never changed--it actually got boring. The orange juice was not good--it tasted like frozen concentrate that hadn't been diluted enough. I think this might have been a method used to encourage cruisers to purchase the fresh squeezed.

Fruit at dinner on the buffet looked like leftovers from lunch.

The dining room was noisy.

Oceanliners restaurant was too dramatic for me. They tried to over accommodate which was uncomfortable after a while. Less

Quiet, clean, lots of storage space, location.

Port and Shore Excursions


Amsterdam is amazing. Lots of history and easy to walk around. Spent three days in Amsterdam before the cruise.

Interesting city.

Nice city. Shuttle took you to the center of town. Plenty to see and easy to walk.

Actually this was the first port after Amsterdam. Typical German vacation town filled with tourist. Nice small town feel.

Private Tour

(5.5)
We took a two-day tour. There were eight of us in a van and with an English-speaking, knowledgeable guide. We saw it all and had lunch at typical Russian restaurants. The food was excellent and not expensive.

Beautiful. Plenty of great sights

It was raining too hard and we hadn't recovered from Russia, so stayed on ship.
