We booked our cruise on MSC Opera for our 30th wedding anniversary. We had heard only good reports about cruising. This was my wife's first cruise although i had cruised before.

We booked MSC opera as we wanted to visit the Baltics and as my wife is a vegetarian we thought Italian cuisine would suit us.

The opera was extremely disappointing in many ways.

Cabin Review

Cabin 8

Nice large bed. wardrobe door was hanging off. Tiny shower and the temperature kept fluctuating.

Port Reviews

Rostock (Warnemunde)

Very nice port with lots of cafes and bars. Take a train to rostock.

Helsinki

Not much to do or see. Very expensive.

St. Petersburg

Very interesting. An experience. Definitely worth seeing.

Copenhagen

Nice. Tivoli park is worth a visit.

Amsterdam

Really liked Amsterdam. Interesting and laid back. Use the canal buses to get around.
