The ship is well cared for - looks perfect in fact. Loved the room but would change out the useless tubs in exchange for a double sink. We appreciated the delicious food in all specialty restarants and the advice of the sommeliers. ... Read more

This was the 12 night cruise from Stockholm to Amsterdam. Three days in St. Petersburg was the highlight of the trip. Staff was extremely helpful, mostly friendly, but somewhat impersonal. This may be for a couple of reasons: 1) the ... Read more
