We chose this cruise after a lot of research. We really liked the destinations which included Oslo (which most other boats don't go to) and also our kids (8 and 11) would be together in the same kids club. Being our first cruise we were pleasantly surprised about the size of the room - we had a mini suite on Aloha, lots of storage so could completely unpack. The kids slept in bunk beds which were taken down everyday by our wonderful steward Kitty. We pretty much did our own things in port - did a Best Guides tour in St Petersburg which was targeted towards the kids - otherwise did hop on hop off buses and a lot of walking. My husband did a SPB tours trip to Berlin which he highly rated and i took the kids to Schwerin on the trains (was easy to navigate on our own and a lot cheaper than the Princess tours etc.

Great first cruise
