I wanted this cruise to see the great Baltic capitals. Mission accomplished. One can only get an overview on these sorts of deals, but I felt that all our guides in the cities we went to were very knowledgeable and helped us understand something of the people and the things we were seeing.
The ship is large, but never felt crowded.
We sailed with my energetic ten year old granddaughter. She wanted to swim every day and had never been to a buffet before! She did not want to participate in any of the youth programs on the ship.
Excellent cabin. The only critique I would have is that is has a very narrow balcony that is only marginally useful for the three people we had in the cabin.
It was a Sunday. None of the shops were open. It was a very relaxing time strolling to the town to see the palace, central parks etc.
