Negative was the english lectures which were poor and limited. As this is a french ship, there was separate lectures for the french-speaking. All announcements were in dual languages. French passengers were friendly but we did not socialize together because of our large group. Staff was friendly. I would go again on this cruise line just because of the food. The pastry chef was outstanding. The evening menu was varied and good selections. I can not comment too much on the ship's excursions as we were traveling with a biking company. In retrospect, perhaps too much port time was spent in St Petersburg. Needs a bigger gym (2 treadmills and 2 stationary bikes) or more physical activities on the cruising day. The evening dance girls taught the exercise classes during the trip and they were educated in form and technique. Compared to a recent Ama waterways river cruise, the food was a much higher standard on this ship. friends had to use the younger female french ER trained doctor and were very happy with care...able to do lab and ekg.

Tauck Tours uses this ship for the Baltic Tour. I won't write about the "tour" part, but the ship had some good aspects. The staterooms were nice and clean. The bed comfortable. After day two, we spent a lot of time off the ship. Two points of concern. The first is the food, which effected us three times a day. It's just not good. I can't remember one thing I ate that I liked, though now a memory of some good cheese returns. But that it? Cheese? And the wifi. Really? We were given 1.5 hour vouchers, but the service is so slow, 1.5 hours goes by in a wink. I actually had to work while onboard, and it was really difficult. I know other cruise liners provide better service, and for the prices, I would say they need to work on this. Most everyone was nice, the the people at reception got a little terse, mostly because we were there asking questions and they were under-staffed. This experience has made me think I won't be cruising again soon. Read Less
