Couldn't fault it
Destination: Baltic Sea
The itinerary was Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg (2 nights) Tallinn and Bruges, the highlight being St. Petersburg. We had booked a private tour which proved to be a master stroke, as we were whisked in effortless comfort, accompanied by an extremely knowledgeable guide to the various venues. The Peter and Paul fortress, the church of the More spilled blood, a fabulous river tour and finally The Hermitage, (definitely not to be missed) The second day we visited the Winter palace, Peterhof and took a ride on the underground the see the incredible stations built by Stalin in the 1930's. On both days there was never any queuing or waiting, including the complimentary lunches in really good small Russian restaurants. It is also worth mentioning that the price was considerably less than Cunard charge for their tours.
We have seen the ships shows many times so don't go any more. But did enjoy the guest speakers and comedian, Allan Stewart.
The Queens suite and grill has totally ruined us now. We are not going again unless offered a similar deal. Less
