Sail Date: Jul 2019
Cabin: Concierge Class 1

This was a good--not great cruise. We were in a Concierge Balcony. This was a very nice stateroom but we do think Concierge is a bit overrated and probably not worth extra $. The cruise director(Sue) was outstanding and main theater entertainment was superb. The secondary entertainment in bar areas was a bit weak. Restaurants were all good but Qisine was simply incredible! Aside from the Little Chef interactive which is a must the food was remarkable! Oddly the fish on this cruise was average at best. My new favorite space on a ship is the aft area and Silhouette has a very nice aft bar. Staff were very nice and accommodating. One problem re the ports--I simply cant recommend going to St Petersburgh at any time in the season. The crowds were overwhelming. Surviving the Hermitage was a miracle! Forget meditating over a work of art. When sailing into Stockholm be sure to get up early to see the Archipelago--breathtaking scenery.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 1

Cabin C1

very nice but not sure worth extra $

Port Reviews

Southampton

Stayed in Pig In The Wall--outstanding small hotel

Brugge (Bruges)

utterly charming

Copenhagen

tour of the City but added benefit of tour of a medieval village

Stockholm

City Hall and Vassa museum very good

Helsinki

Basically Hop on Hop off which is not bad--took short cruise in bay--walked to library and train station

St. Petersburg

It is simply not worth it to go to St Petersburgh in season--crowds are simply overwhelming

Rostock (Warnemunde)

for those of us who did not want to take 7 hour bus ride to and from Berlin these little towns at or near the port are very charming--quaint areas with good shops and restaurants
