Three days in St Petersburg is what drew us to this particular cruise. From the moment we stepped on board, we felt like family.
Everyone was so pleasant -- the crew and the passengers! Our cabin attendant was very pleasant and knew our names and faces from the get-go; she often greeted us by name as we went down the hallways.
We were disappointed that we didn't get to Riga due to rough seas but we spent a lovely day "at sea" when the crew easily adapted from expecting folks to go ashore to having everyone aboard. I love the smaller ship as it makes embarkation and debarkation so easy! And being close to town so you can come and go as you please is very nice!
Our cabin was pleasant but small. There is only room for the bed and a small desk with a stool. The closet space and drawers were more than adequate. Our "obstructed view" was barely obstructed with a small boat.
