Find out where the outside smoking zone is on this ship and avoid booking a balcony cabin above this area if you are a non-smoker. We made this mistake and our balcony was unusable even on windy days. There were too many fee-charging dining and entertainment for my liking. I felt like I was being nickeled and dimed. Food was good overall, especially in the full-service restaurants but the cafe felt a bit too much like an overcrowded, noisy food zoo (maybe I'm just too old?). It would have been nice to incorporate more local items into the cuising. The ship is big, the downside of this is out-of-town docks, it would have been nice to have a more in-town dock in Helsinki. The days at sea lacked any inspiring activities. Would have been nice to have more time in Stockholm but sailing the archipelago in the daytime is cool

Careful on choosing your cabin
