Over a year ago, our friends got us drunk and convinced us to go on our first cruise ever. As 'youngin's' - in our late 30's - we were worried that we would be bored or not like cruising, since it is 'for old people' - HA. Boy, were we wrong, and now we are hooked! The boat, the itinerary, the staff/service, the food... everything was beyond amazing! We are now totally spoiled, as part of the 'convincing' from our friends was do get a suite and all of the suite class benefits - so now we cannot imagine having anything less. Luminae, the suite class restaurant was outstanding with new and breathtaking menu offerings each day. Having a butler (whose name was Alfred, by the way) whenever we needed him, not to mention a gorgeous room, made us never want to leave the ship. But of course, the real reason we were there was the itinerary. I am pretty sure we will never be Caribbean cruisers, but being able to unpack once and see places like Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Estonia and Russia with ease of travel, was a dream. We were of course excited initially by Stockholm, Copenhagen and St. Petersburg, but did not really know what to expect from Brugges, Tallin and Warnamunde - all three of which were also an absolute delight, and much more relaxing and just perfect for a pint and people watching.

Better than we could have ever dreamed - First cruise ever.

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S2 2116
We already booked our next cruise and got nearly the exact same room - if that says anything. I loved being on the 12th deck, right off the pool and so close to the spa cafe.
Having the overhang, so the room never got too hot, and being able to just walk up one set of stairs to the OceanView Cafe and Sunset Lounge was a big bonus too.
The room was the perfect size and out friends were in the room next door, so we open the partition between our balconies, making it one large balcony, which was fantastic.
