We chose this cruise based on its itinerary and cost. We have cruised on the Navigator before and have done multiple RCL cruises. The ports of call were what we wanted to see and were enjoyable especially St. Petersburg, but the overall experience on the boat was not up to the previous RCL cruises. The food served in the main dining area was lacking in taste and many of the choices were not items I would eat. After the 6th night we ate in the windjammer that had a larger variety of menu choices. Our best meal was served in Chops Grill with a wondeful server. If this had been a Caribbean cruise finding a place to sit would not have been a problem but being a Baltic cruise outside pool areas were not comfortable areas to sit so that left the interior of the cruise ship crowded in the seatng areas. The entertainment was not up to the levels that we have enjoyed on previous RCL cruises wtih the exception of the pianist in the Schooner bar Lyn Lawrence. The staff made it seem llike disembarking in St. Petersburg was going to be a nightmare with waits in line as long as an hour to get through immigration. That was not true we had no problems going through imiigration . We did not book any shore excusions through the cruise company but did have to buy the shuttle passes into Copenhagen and Helsinki from the cruise line because of where the ship had to dock. Our luggage was suppose to be taken off in the first group because we had a transfer to the airport however one piece of luggage was misplaced and was on the very last crate of luggage brought off the ship. Fortunately they held the bus until we could find our luggage. .

Not up to RCL standards

Cabin Review

Cabin 8291
Thc cabin was an interior room with a window overlooking the promenade. We were able to look out and see what was happening on the promenade.
