We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Ports of Call that we never visited before. Amsterdam, Netherlands, Skagen and Copenhagen in Denmark, Helsinki, Finland, Stockholm, Sweden, Tallinn, Estonia and Saint Petersburg, Russia. All great cities to explore. We did our own self-guided walking tours in each port except for Saint Petersburg where we booked a two-day grand tour with Alla Tours. It's a small group of only 12 in a van which is more enjoyable that a large group on a bus. The food in the Windjammer was good and in the main dining room mostly excellent. Mario and Diony in the dining room provided outstanding service. Diony entertained us with his magic every evening. Radivoje and Edward (bar waiters on the ship) also provided excellent service. The shows every night were very good. The Royal Caribbean Orchestra was the best we've seen on any cruise. The internet was very slow and sometimes we couldn't log on. We find that Royal Caribbean and Celebrity provides us with the best cruising experience.
