Top notch cruise! The ship was beautiful with every comfort.
Lots of variety of tours and local guides were excellent.
All restaurants were great...food ,staff and service were outstanding.We chose a penthouse jr. suite which was spacious and comfortable. The region in the Baltic was very beautiful and interesting. All of the countries in the itinerary were worthwhile to visit. It happened to be very hot this year in July with temperatures running in the high 80 ‘s to low 90’s in Germany and St. Petersburg. You should bear in mind that air conditioning is not common in Europe and people that can’t cope with the heat should consider this when choosing the time to take this cruise. One thing not to be missed is entering our final port, Stockholm, sailing through the Achipelago of small islands on the approach. It was worth getting up at 5 AM to experience this serene and magical sight. The staff had told us the approximate time and it should not be missed. We had wonderful experience and highly recommend this tour.
Spacious and comfortable. Worth the cost to upgrade.An added amenity in this cabin category is laundry service which was excellent. The butler and staff that maintained our room were wonderful and eager to see to our requests.
Very long train ride, no air conditioning very hot. Too short a time to see much after the bus tour.
