Overall Member Rating
Fred Oulsen - Braemar St Petersburg
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation at Dover was extremely easy. Hardly any wait time and were kept informed about what to do and what was happening. As soon as we reached our room suitcases arrived.
The room was very comfortable if what 'snug'. A large, uninterrupted view, window was an unexpected bonus. When booking always check what your view will be. Single beds very comfortable. Bathroom, again snug, but clean and functional. I would not describe the accommodation as luxury but certainly comfortable.
The ship's staff were always very friendly and accommodating.
Food, in my humble opinion, was very good. Several seasoned passengers thought it was not up to the standard of More lines such as P&O but we both thought it was very good - excellent. Would definitely rate at 4*
Probably the poorest part of the cruise. The lounge is very small, furniture unsuitable and uncomfortable. Entertainers were of holiday camp standard - certainly not West End!
Due to the size of the ship our mooring points were always within easy walk of the nearest town. We saved a lot of money by going D.I.Y. They only excursions were in St Petersburg.
As easy as boarding. A half hour wait in a lounge but once moving, very quick and the collection of luggage was very slick
An excellent introduction to cruising and extremely good value for money Less
Cabin review: B Superior Twin Outside
B - Superior Outside Cabin. Comfortable but not spacious. Very good view but similar cabins had restricted views. Hallway very quiet, our locations are near engine shafts and seemed noisy.Read All Superior Twin Outside (B) Reviews >>
