Sail Date: May 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

This was our second cruise with RCI chosen for the all star itinerary leaving and returning from Copenhagen. My husband and I were traveling with our three adult children which made the experience particularly enjoyable. We are frequent Celebrity cruisers and I will make some comparisons between the lines.

Pre- cruise/ post cruise

After 2 flight cancellations, delays, missed connections and lost luggage, our family converged at the very comfortable Copenhagen Marriott. ( We booked early and got a senior rate which combined with my daughter's marriott platunum benefits made it a great deal). The hotel was walking distance to most attractions and access to the lounge was a real convenience for breakfast and snacks. We had a harbor view room before the cruise and the city view when we returned for a great view of the Tivoli fireworks.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin E1

This cabin had a huge balcony and great location. I knew it could be subject to noise from Centrum but underestimated how busy Centrum would be. I ended up calling guest relations to request that the fire doors be closed ( which eliminates most of the noise) with mixed results.

In spite of this, hard to resist the balcony and chaises!

Port Reviews

Helsinki

Wish we had more time in this port. Took the RCI shuttle since no other option. Able to walk to most attractions. Had great lunch at food tents.
