Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin: Signature Superior Verandah Suite

This cruise was a 100% transport logistic success. From the departure Airport to the final destination airport / from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the ship. We took all arrangements with our Holland America Travel Agent. Arriving at Copenhagen Airport a HA Representative greeted us and led us to the right carousel for our luggage pick-up and then to the bus outside that took us to our well located Scandic Hotel. At the hotel an other HA Representative greeted us and gave us documentation and explanations on the embarkation process and transport to the ship. The disembarkation went smoothly and on schedule. Our luggage were already waiting for us in a big Tent at the Airport.

Being both 65 of age my wiffe and I like to be pampered and taken in charge for all the logistic aspects. Holland America is an expert at that.

The embarkation process went smoothly. Our suite 6061 was clean and ready at the embarkation. Since that cruise was very tour intensive, we had all our dining in the main dining room. Food was very good. Our dining waiters and sommelier were very smart and attentive to our needs. Along the cruise our cabin stewards did an excellent job at getting our stateroom clean and ready. As some tours depart very early we called our breakfast in our cabin and they were delivered at the time requested.

Our cabin was very clean and ready at arrivel. Very functional and with well enough storage space. Large balcony with four chairs and a table.

Port Reviews

Kiel

The ship docked at the Boardwalk and Marina. You can have a very nice walking visit on your own on the boardwalk and the city center at 30 minutes walking distance.

Stockholm

We took a taxi from the Port to the Vasa museum. It cost 80 Euros. Let us say the taxi driver did arrange the conversion from sweden crowns to Euros at his advantage. He didn't offer credit card payment. We came back by foot with the help of Google maps on my Smart phone. 1 hour walk. So, don't forget your Sweden Crowns. Vasa Museum is terrific to visit. It's a must. The museum is located in an aera where there are many other museums.

Tallinn

If you want to scroll in the Old Medieval Tallin and you can walk, it is a 20 minutes walk from the pier. Coming back to the ship there are excellent souvenir and local product shops. Prices in Tallin are reasonable.
