Itinerary: Scandinavia and Russia
The food was good, we did MyTime dining which is a must for this cruise due to the new of port days.
Stateroom was to the normal standards.
The entertainment was good. Particularly the shows which could rival the West End. There was a pianist, which I thought I would not like so did not attend, but everyone was raving about this. Also I missed the Salsa dancing, and this was also very good. No time to get bored on this ship.
With the exception of Gothenburg and Russia you can easily make your own way to the cities by foot or the port shuttle bus. We went to the church of the spilled blood and it was absolutely amazing. Well worth the visit.
We were very lucky, the weather was in the mid 70's and sunny the majority of the time. Unfortunately the week before it rained, so I guess it is a bit like the uk? Each port had something to offer and was easily reached. Prices are high in Scandinavia so probably best not to eat out unless it doesnt bother you.
