We chose this cruise as St Petersburgh was high on my husband's bucket list and we had a great deal. Although I normally don't like the larger ships, this one worked very well for us. We knew that it would not be a sun trip and were equipped for the, to us, cold weather. We were not bored on the sea days and found the entertainment, as per usual when travelling with NCL, great with plenty of choice. Although there are additional 'to pay for' restaurants and entertainments we stuck to the included and were not disappointed. I am not a lover of buffets but the variety of food was very good and the restaurants were very good. We had no need to visit the speciality 'pay for' restaurants. We did this trip on a budget so opted unusually for an inside cabin but we had no problem. The cabin lacked wardrobe space but otherwise was good. We were a couple and were quite happy with the facilities on board. We tend to try and avoid ships tours as they tend to be very expensive. After researching, we booked tours with TJ Travel and cannot praise them enough. They provided exactly what they offered - smaller groups, excellent guides, timely pick up and return to the ship. Would highly recommend this company.
