My name is Patricia Blackstock, and I'm from Myrtle Beach, SC. My sister-in-law, Paula Snider, lives in Ft. Worth, TX. Paula called me back in the winter to ask if Russia was still on my bucket list, and if so, how about a cruise to the Baltic countries!
Paula had been on a Holland America ship in the past, and her recommendation was enough for me to agree to this trip. She already had a travel agent with Holland America, so he became my contact for this trip.
This review is mine alone, so let me tell you upfront that this is only my 4th cruise. My husband and I usually opt for all-inclusive adult only resorts for our annual vacations, When friends tell us about cruise specials, we'll check their recommendations, but we opt for the all-inclusive resort instead.
