Always fancied a Baltic cruise due to the amount and variety of ports visited. Our cabin had a full length window and was more spacious than i expected with a very well appointed shower room and lounge area. A wide variety of dining choices with a huge menu to cater for all tastes. The staff and crew were very helpful contributing significantly to our overall experience. Great entertainment and activities for sea days and evenings. We did our own thing at each port having worked out in advance where and what we wanted to see so did not use the ships excursion facilities other than the shuttle bus at Helsinki and Stockholm. Arranged our own visa for Russia and stayed ashore in a St Petersburg hotel and visted a great authentic Russian restaurant. this allowed us both days with total freedom of movement rather than tied to arranged tours. Used a cash account for our on board purchases rather than credit card which can be costly with poor exchange rates. As a couple we would certainly consider another cruise.

First ever cruise

Cabin 4590
Bigger cabin than expected that had full length window. Well appointed shower room and a fine wee lounge area. Cabin house keeping was excellent.
