This was my first Cruise... I knew the Liner was not going to be like the Carnival.. Super luxury. But over all great experience. The rooms were small it's good if u aren't sharing cause it can get really tight. The Grand Buffet dinner was really good. The resturants on board were great too. So great experience. Very good stag at the Info counter.

The guide dressed in a frock coat, a cane and a hat immediately put us in the mood. He told us many disturbing stories about Stockholm in the Middle Ages, far from IKEA and Abba. All these anecdotes are punctuated with humor and a theatrical storytelling tone that make the visit thrilling and exciting!

Przewodnik Chris wprowadzał wspaniały klimat pomimo wcześniej godziny (zwiedzanie zaczęło się o 16). Bardzo polecam wycieczkę
