We enjoy this class of ship for its ease of getting around and meeting people. It is in need of some refurbishing and can feel overcrowded at times. Embarking and disembarking went very smooth. The ports were wonderful and we enjoyed them ... Read more

It was a cruise we have both wanted to do for some time. There is so much to do during sea days and all staff are very friendly and helpful. The ports of call were excellent and appeared to get better each with the final stop in Gerainger ... Read more

Arrival at the port was early but our cases were loaded which left us quite a lot of free time in Amsterday (only a 30 minute walk from port to centre of Amsterdam). Check in busy as you would expect. We were in cabin 3124. Cabin was ... Read more

We booked this itinerary because we've never seen this area of Europe. We brought 2 preschool-aged kids and decided to book it for the late spring so that we would avoid summer crowds. We started and ended in Amsterdam and stayed 1 ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary but the food in the Aquarius Dining Room was tasteless for the most part, no seasonings! The menus lacked any enthusiasm. The first 3 days there were great choices but it went downhill from there, ... Read more

Service was excellent but the staff is stretched to the limit food was mediocre - what used to be formal night fare was now to be paid extra for and the quality of the food was far below the usual for RCCL it seems that the higher ... Read more

We chose this particular ship because of timing and Itinerary. We had read reviews mentioning the age and condition of the ship, but were very pleasantly surprised with how it appeared in general. We were in a Grand Suite (1550) and it ... Read more

We chose the Baltic and Nordic cruises because they offered the itineraries we wanted and were back-to-back. The RC shore excursions were excellent as were the non-RC excursions that we mixed in because of content or price. The excursion ... Read more

The ports of call were great. The weather was cool, some snow but no rain for the 10 days. The ship is in need of upgrading. Activities were just average, entertainment average. The American Dream and Russian dance troupe were the best ... Read more

It looked like a good deal price-wise for the first cruise of the year to the Baltics. The food in the main dining room was pretty good in the evening except for the desserts. The next to last night they exceeded themselves with offerings ... Read more

The first reason why we did this cruise is the ports of call and second this is our 6th time cruising with RCC. The ship could really use some major window washing. It was hard to see the views through the window in the back of the ship ... Read more

This cruise was awful. The only good thing was the cabin. The cruise as full of young families with toddlers who did not control their children. Worse the hygeine in dining areas was appalling. Tables were sticky and only wiped with dirty ... Read more

I went as part of a dance group from Victoria BC and this was my first ever cruise. Overall I'm glad I went but I don't think cruising is a perferable vacation method for me. Other than the staff at 'Guest Services' who were downright ... Read more

I have never been so disappointed on a cruise. I choose this cruise because of the itinerary because it had 3 nights in St. Petersburg, Russia. The ship is well worn. It really needs to be refurbished. It was the smallest balcony ... Read more

We cruise on the average of twice a year, usually on Royal Caribbean. The staff on this cruise was one of the most dedicated and friendly of any in recent years. Our cabin attendant, Ernesto, our wait staff in the MDR and the Windjammer, ... Read more
