Sail Date: Jul 2016
Cabin: Oceanview

I resisted Cruising fir 40 years. this is the Baltic which made all the difference. St Petersburg alone is spectacular but all towns (Bruges, Helsinki, Talinn, Gdansk Copenhagen, Stockholm etc.) are brilliant.

on board it's like visiting a good restaurant every evening with excellent service and a 5 course meal.. really full buffet breakfast. but want coffee or tea with your free and excellent pastries, outside the buffet and it's $3-5. it's the same tea bags as in the free buffet. Not sure what the beverage called coffee served in the buffet, is.

Internet costs $50 every few hours!.

Cabin Review


Cabin OB

adequate bed, but bend your head to get around (there are bunk beds which fold down almost over your bed. shower tiny, but does the job.

Port Reviews


boarding very smooth, luggage taken from dockside to outside your cabin

Brugge (Bruges)

you are not informed that you dont' dock in Bruges, and it's quite a journey. need to getbyour info before departure


a beautiful city


much to see


More recent than other cities, indeed the Finns as an independent nation. quite beautiful

St. Petersburg

Probably the most stunning place in Europe. The Tsars spent $bn's on the palaces and art.


Really early medieval town gerat atmosphere

Gdansk (Warsaw)

Another medieval town, much restored from WWII destruction
