Sail Date: Jun 2017
Cabin:

This cruise was put together with another cruise in the Mediterranean, we really enjoyed the combination of the two. It was great having 3 nights in Copenhagen before the cruise and then visiting Stockholme, Tallin, St Petersburg and Helsinki. I would like to overnight in St Petersburg and have 2 full days there as there is so much to see and do. I thoroughly enjoyed what we did do but felt a bit frustrated to go so far and only have a short time there. I had been to Stockholme and Helsinki before so was happy with just a day in each port. I found the boat very comfortable, our cabins were a great size and even though we were on the 3rd deck I didn't feel like we missed out on anything. Food was very good, if you have an allergy of any type I recommend you speak to Guest Services and if possible to the Head Chef. We went with a flexible or no fixed meal time which suited us and we had no problem with this. We found the staff very attentive and supportive in all areas.

We would definitely consider doing another cruise with Royal Caribean.

Cabin Review

Cabin Ocean View Stateroom Double

We were very happy with our room - the bed was comfortable, although we would have preferred one large doona rather than 2 single doonas. I was very happy that there was a sheet as well as a doona. Our towels and mat were changed regularly and our room cleaned and updated promptly.

Port Reviews

Copenhagen

In Copenhagen we took the Red Bus Tour and joined that with a Boat Tour - they were both excellent and would recommend. We got off the bus and explored at different venues eg. Ameliaborg Palace and the Changing of the Guard, Tivoli Park, Little Mermaid, we really enjoyed the Glyptotek and just walking around the old city.

Stockholm

In Stockholm we could the Red Hop On Hop Off Bus and decided to look at the Concert Hall where the Nobel Prize is awarded but it didn't open until 11am so we continued on to the City Hall (Stadshuset) where they hold the Banquet Dinner after the presentation of the Nobel Prize. We were very surprised and enjoyed it immensely, we then walked around the old city which was quite interesting. We had been before and had already visited the Vasa Museum and Skansen which we had thoroughly enjoyed.
