Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2022

Overview: We wanted to go to Europe and experience multiple countries, so our trip seemed like a great idea! We were supposed to visit 9 countries, but the stop in Russia was cancelled for obvious reasons. Neither of us had any significant cruising experience, so we didn't really have any expectations. We were there for fun, relaxation, and adventure!

Food: In general, the 'basic' food was fine. We were able to have a few 'specialty' meals and we loved endless meat at the Brazilian steakhouse, steak & dessert at Cagney's, and dinner at the Teppanyaki restaurant.

Things to do: We played trivia everyday and it was nice that the staff knew us b/c we always sat in the same spot. It was fun to be a 'regular' when showing up to events. Deal or No Deal was a blast! My wife got called up and won almost $600, but you spend a lot to play. The Michael Jackson tribute was very good and the big finale was pretty amazing! Do not miss the finale if you take this cruise! The casino was not very crowded and the dealers were nice.

Cabin Review

It was nice with plenty of room for 2 people. The bathroom was tight, but functional. We spent a lot of time on the balcony and we were very happy to have won the bid to get that upgrade.

Port Reviews


Beautiful. See the sights, but find an outdoor restaurant to just enjoy!

Gdansk (Warsaw)

Old Town is amazing. You will not be disappointed.


Very nice people and the market on the water is cool. Try some of the local food!


Compared to the other cities, a bit of a bust.


Old and amazing. I loved this city!


Didn't know what to expect, but some cool parts of town and a great market within walking distance. We wanted a local experience, so we broke away from the tour group on this.


Once you see it, you'll know. It's amazing!
