We chose this cruise for the itinerary since we'd heard from multiple people that a Baltic cruise was a "must do". While we were very impressed with the ports of call, the ship left something to be desired. We had read that the ... Read more

I really enjoyed this cruise, but the excursions in Russia are really too expensive, the shuttles to the city centers are much too expensive, and sometimes the boat did not seem well maintained, stained cushions, cushions and carpets Dirty ... Read more
