Cabin: Outside Classic

We chose this cruise because due to the location we knew it would be cool weather wise.This was correct..nice and cool.Itenerary was Stockholm/Helsinki/St Petersburg/Talinn/Stockholm.Absolutely loved all the ports except St Peterburg.Would not recommend going there.And if you do my advice is if your there 2 nights as were were only sign up for one day of excusions.Many people had booked both days and wished after the first they had not.You cant get a refund if you book both.Also avoid walking tours in St Petersburg...terribly crowded in summer and street level grim and dangerous w pick pocketing.Be prepared for all the tours in St P to be extremely crowded.Your main concern will be not losing your tour guide.On this cruise the best place to shop is Talinn pricewise.We were very pleased with the Luminosa.Service was great food was good.Biggest complaint which is significant is no free wifi.Its crazy paying extra for wifi and we didnt but our trip would have been easier if we could have.Also wish they would have been better about keeping kids out of the adult pool.Other wise we were happy with our cruise.
