Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

Cabin B1

Cabin location on 8 deck excellent - no public rooms above or below. No service doors opposite.

Cabin well maintained and excellent size and fit and finish. No complaints.

My next comment is not specifically about this cabin.

I believe this pertains to ship design. Please read the review above for details.

There is significant noise in the cabin due to the "banging" of the drawer and closet door mechanisms. Further, the sound attenuation in ceiling/walls seems poor as we could hear foot falls and voicees/tv from adjacent rooms.

Not the quality of construction one would expect of a premium cruise line.

Otherwise, the room was excellent and well located

Port Reviews

St. Petersburg

We used TJ tours for a 2 day intensive SP tour. Highly recommend. Key here was that they included a hydofoil trip to the Hermitage to save ALOT of time vs regular tours that bus you there. The guide had 14 years experience and it showed. Saw all the major attractions and we also got a boat cruise through SP to see the city in all its glory. Very, very pleased

Berlin

Used TJ travel. Takes 3 hours to get to Berlin and back.

Our guide was a part time historian and journalist - provided excellent background and analysis. Could not be more pleased with TJ

Love Berlin
